    Butch,

    Have you and Ashley research ITP to see if it might be ITP instead of MDS? Is the doctor checking for either or is he still going on his theory that it’s postinfectious thrombocytopenia? That seems pretty low for a postinfectious state…..

    Patti:

    The doc said her white blood cells show that she is still fighting an infection so she is staying with her previous diagnosis of postinfectious thrombocytopenia.

    Butch,

    I’m glad to hear that she is doing better and that it’s not AML. I hope she is still doing well.

    I thought about you the other day because I heard the Goo Goo Doll’s “Better Days” and I remember you quoted it last year. Well, I am having better days as is my mom and I hope you are, too!

    Merry Christmas,
    Carrie
