We saw the cardiologist yesterday. Good news is that his heart is still perfectly balanced so the doctor wants to wait on surgery and continue to let Mason grow bigger. Other news is that it is very rare for low platelets to be caused by heart defects so we still don’t know what is causing this. The doctor doesn’t want to do heart surgery until we know and have a solution. When Mason has his heart surgery and gets put on bypass he will lose a lot of platelets. So, we can’t do heart surgery with them starting off low.
We saw the hematologist today and scheduled a bone marrow test for Friday to test for Leukemia and other blood diseases. Best case scenario is that we rule these out and see that Mason is just Mason with low platelets and do some transfusions.Good news is that his platelets have gone up from 27,000 to 52,000!
Thanks everyone for all of your kind words, encouragement, thoughts, and prayers throughout all of this! It truly means so much to us. We feel so blessed to have such a great community of supporters!
