I think we've finally found someone that agrees with us! We have consistently said that we think Olivia's current bleeding issues are related to the Lovenox injections. Dr. Smith from St. Jude agrees, so we are going to try to transition her back to her coumadin and hope the other things resolve.
Her platelets and hemoglobin have really been all over the place the last few days...not even worth trying to figure out that one. She did get some more blood last night and some more of the fresh frozen plasma, as well. She had a rough evening again - lots of screaming, bleeding, etc... By the time I came in this morning, she was happier than I'd seen her in weeks. She was having a great old time.
Otherwise, all seems status quo. Hopefully stopping the Lovenox makes everything all better!!!

Boy oh boy, you guys have had an eventful few days. I haven't really been checking in b/c I was at my parents house and they have dial up and I find it so very annoying! Anyway, I hope this change in medication makes a difference for Olivia. Bless her heart, it's been a long week for her, but it sounds like things are slowly getting worked out. I hope you're reporting great things from home by this time next week :)

I'm glad to hear that maybe some things are getting sorted out. I hope that tonight is pain free for Olivia, so that you both have a quiet night. Praying that you get to come home soon and be a family under one roof.
