While little Caleb is getting to flirt with all the nurses and other little girls at the hospital, mommy and daddy got to visit and play with him at every chance they could. It's so fun to hold him, feed him, and even change him. He has recieved three transfusions, but after each one his platelet count drops, however, it has slowed down each time. The doctors say not to worry and to give the little guy time to figure out what is good and what is bad in his blood and that eventually the good will overcome the bad and he will stabilize. Until that we can visit and hold him and play with him and if we are too tired even take a little nap with him. We have mainly just been trying to convince him that it really isn't the end of the world if he comes home with us and that we will treat him right, crazy kid!
Low platelets don't help prevent bruising that much and when your daddy already bruises like a peach that isn't great news for your little baby hand after you rip out your own IV line.
