low platelet count

My dad's platelet count this morning (Monday) was 1,000. They did a steroid drip at the hospital before they let him go to try and stabilize him. Something is still rapidly killing off his platelets. He should be stable through tonight with the steroid drip that he got today.

Tomorrow (Tues) he will go in for a bone marrow biopsy and hopefully we'll have some some results and answers from his blood work last week. The bone marrow biopsy takes about a week to process so we won't know results from that until probably next week sometime. Please keep praying with us for answers this week and for his platelet count to go up and maintain. We are requesting no visitors until we know more about what is going on.

Thanks for loving us through prayer! We are grateful to be in HIS hands!
