Terrifying days for Xavier

On the early morning of 1st May, mummy discovered a little fresh blood in the stools. Hence, mummy and daddy decided to monitor for the next two stools to see if there are anymore blood. Second stool was more or less the same the first. By the third stool in the late afternoon, you passed out alot of soft stools cum watery bloody mixture. Daddy and mummy decided to bring you to KKH for a check to play safe.

By the time you were called into the consultation room, we discovered some unknown bruises on your right leg as well as rashes on the head. Further checks made by the doctor, found some little purple dots on the sole of the feet. Doc said that you have to be admitted immediately for observation. The stools with blood continued for two days and the cause for the bloody stools were still unknown.

Your bloody stools continued for two days and both your feet turned purple as it was bleeding within you. The bruises were darker and it was so troubling to see them. Mummy couldn't help but worry. Doc told us that you were low in plalettes. Normal range for people is between 100 - 450. But the result from your blood test showed that your plalette count is only 10, which was extrememly low. Anything that goes below 5 , the risk of brain bleeding would be there. Daddy and mummy was advised not to shake you when we carry you in case, we might shake too hard and cause your brain to bleed.

Daddy and mummy were told that you will be given plalettes transfusion so as to increase your plalettes count. On top of that, if the counts did not maintain at the desire level or continue to decrease, you would have to do a bone marrow test to find out what actually happened that caused your plalettes count to drop. Due to the low plalettes count, it also actually rupture the red blood cells, causing the red blood cells count to drop as well. As such, there was also a necessary to put you on a blood drip.

The big big stringe .. Scary ..

Mummy and Daddy did not forget to check if you have put on pounds.. hee..
