Been having major bruising for about a month and had blood work today. Count is 6. Three yrs ago I was 139.

Was scheduled for my first vaccine on the 31st. I think I’ll postpone it for now


Update. At hospital getting ivig and dexamethasone - after discharge count was 65
Count after five days if dexamethasone was 345, the highest ive ever been

Atelets dropped again, hard and fast

I did get my first covid shot while i thought my numbers were up. Was just starting to bruise again

Round two - june 17 started getting the blue hematomas again, count was 10. Back to emerg, more IVIG and another five days of the dex. Discharged this morning, count was 17. Didnt seem to work as well as my first round. Although it was only an hour after IVIG was finished vs five hours the last time

Will test again on monday
