Platelets are rock solid, Yea Yea Yea (remastered)

You've heard the tune before. G-d willing you will be hearing it over and over again for a long time coming. Boring is good, change is bad when it comes to platelet count.

Platelets were a happy 223,000 yesterday. Two weeks ago the count was 226,000.

Can't say it enough. Flatline is good news when we are talking platelet counts.

Dr. Rai suggested I keep it simple, and so I will. He said and I am listening: Stay with the simple safe IVIG until it isn't doing the job.

In this situation concerning treatment, less is more. No need to add a more toxic chemical to the mix until my hand is forced.

The only change I am considering is stretching out the interval between infusions.

Dr. Rai's KISS approach resonates with me although I would add another s. KISSS=Keep It Simple & Safe Stupid! I am glad your body has responded so well to such a simple treatment.
