    Brett – Forgot to address bruising/bleeding. My regular Dr has had me on daily aspirin for many years, so I’ve been slow to clot since then, and any bump would cause a bruise that seemed large in proportion to the bumping. He’s cut me back to every other day for standard 81mg baby aspirin. But now I do find more bruising I can’t even explain/don’t recall bumping at all, and still slow to clot.

    Brett – Good to talk to you. I spoke too soon though, Monday’s blood work came back and my Absolutes tanked from 450 to 250… so having another marrow biopsy this week. He wanted to do an annual one anyway which would have been January…. but he doesn’t want to wait to see what’s going on. I’ll let you know.
