So he was almost done with platelets and suddenly his cheeks flushed and he had a weird rash that spread down his neck onto his arms and trunk a little. They stopped the platelets and the doc came and looked at him, said it was common to have a reaction to platelets and had the nurse give him some benadryl. Right after the benadryl was in he had a coughing fit and started shaking but it was really shortlived so I guess all is okay now. He is totally stoned from the benadryl. Hopefully when morning rolls around in 4 hours he will be back to normal and feeling a little better with platelets in him. The rest of his counts are terrible too. Sigh. I was determined to not be a freak about everything now that he is in maintenance, but with ANC a big fat zero I guess we still have to be freaks. Other counts HCT 25.9 (right above needing a transfusion) WBC .7, segs 6, bands 0 which makes his ANC .042, which rounds down to zero. RBC 2.9, HGB 8.9. ~sigh~ We head to PCMC on Tuesday for his regular monthly treatment.
