Woo kiddo's bone marrow is normal, so now it's looking at genetics again to see wtf is eating his platelets.  Here's hoping that all looks normal and his immune system is just slightly confused at the moment.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Have they checked if it is idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura? I had that around that age and it sounds pretty similar.

Well, itp is usually something that goes away after 12 months, at least what the hematologist said. I think with some of his other health issues they just want to tie it to a neat package.  Sometimes a kid is just unlucky.  Other issues have resolved.

My flat mates really are unrepentant douchebags (he said, typing this while having his headphones on and still able to hear their music over his own).  It's exactly like having to deal with students all over again, down to the incessant pot smoking, not going to bed until 5am and letting doors slam because fuck everyone else who's trying to sleep, right?

Fortunately, I seem to have found a decent new place.  Going to take a couple of days to confirm, but it would somehow result in a faster commute, despite being further out from central London and thus giving me more space for about the same price.

My beloved is about to have her gallbladder removed. It's simple routine surgery but we are both still scared. The past few days have been hell for her.
