Our little guy (now 2years, 9 months) was diagnosed 5/2019. Received steroids twice with response lasting around 1 week each time. IVIG elicited a positive response for less than 2 weeks. Months of NPlates with no response. Now on 50mg of Promacta. No real positive response. (One lab found a count of 32 but dropped the next week.) Most recent count was 10. Not unusual for him to be <10. He does have bruises but no "wet" bleeding. My question is this: Can anyone share with me what kind of parameters they were comfortable with when practicing the "watch and wait" policy? Thank you.
