Platelet Dysfunction

Sam continues to have multiple bloody noses. It is awful, at least one but mostly more than one a day. Sam is taking it all in a stride but to me it is stressing me out. In the back of my nurse brain I keep thinking about the possiblity that he will become anemic if this continues. I am supposed to call the doctor on monday to see what I should do now. He gets active and starts bleeding. He's sleeping and starts bleeding. Every pillow in our house has a blood stain. Poor guy has blood stains on a lot of sheets. At this point I am feeling ok with the amount of blood he has hadd, but if he has much more bloody stool I am afraid he will get anemic. Please keep him in your prayers!
