Platelets are rock solid, Yea Yea Yea


The second time around with my IVIG, my platelets didn't budge between day 7 and 14, staying at a very healthy 220,000. After my first dose, by this time they had fallen 70,000.

I think it's the Beatles watch. It was running slow when I developed my ITP, and since replacing the battery, my platelets have improved.

Not that I am going to stop my IVIG. The Fab Four help those who help themselves. I get by with a little help from my friends.

Seriously, magical mystery thinking is a potent adjunct to modern medicine.
