April 9th Post

Ty's latest test results showed that his platelet counts were back up into normal range. The doctor has authorized him to resume taking Gleevec, although he is only supposed to take a 400mg dose and not the 600mg dose he was taking before his sinus infection kicked in. He wasn't experiencing any side effects, other than the anemia and low platelet count, so I am hoping they will be able to up his dosage again soon. The 600mg dose is supposed to provide better results for those who are able to manage it.
