It's the platelets, stupid

My CT findings so long anticipated and so critical in the assessment of where I was and where I was going have been rendered moot by the drop in platelets.

If tomorrow's blood count confirms a downward trend in those critically important hemorrhage stopping cells, then I am surely marching towards a second transplant with just a few detours to get the body ready for the long trip ahead. The speed and the exact route would be yet undetermined. but the endgame is clear.

The platelet count trumps everything.

Tomorrow I will have the new CBC.

Tomorrow, after I finish my very therapeutic deep purging of the old papers and undone projects in my office, I will share my thinking about my new status and my new plans based on those results and the CT. I am surprisingly confident of the ultimate outcome.

Let's hope for a big jump up in the platelets, making all my noodling about them as big waste of time.

Hold on. This could be a wild ride. Or maybe not.
