Chemo Day Care - 21st May 2009

Aidan’s platelet count was low. Doc asked us to get someone in to donate platelets. We called many people but for some reason no one seemed to be available. Then Jacob’s colleague Lim, came to donate. Unfortunately, Lim’s platelet count was low too. Then Calvin the cousin came in and his veins were too small for the platelet extraction machine. Finally good ol’ Alex came in to save the day once again. However by that time it was too late. It takes about two hours to extract the platelets. So we went home and had to come back on 22nd May for them to give Aidan the platelet infusion. What drama…….

Note:- Platelet extraction and infusion costs approximately RM1200 every time it is needed.
