Platelets going up!

We are back at great Ormond Steert and Chiane is an inpatient for a few days while tests are being carried out to establish how her body is recovering after the last high dose Thiotepa.

The good news is that we continued with HLA match platelet transfusion from 1 donor, despite being told that Chiane won’t benefit from it. Luckily she did, and her platelet levels today went up from 5 to 75, 1200% increase benefit compared to normal platelet transfusion. She has responded well and her platelets incremented which is all very positive and good news!

I will update the website again once all tests are completed and we have a better picture as to how Chiane is doing to make the necessarily decisions regarding any future treatments.
