Bloody Noses

Oh.. the nose fountain. Jose's nose has been bleeding on and off for three days! Poor guy can't get it to stop. His hemocrit dropped from a 28 to a 21 in two days because of it. He was throwing up blood clots. It was horrible. He couldn't eat or drink anything. The doctors upped his platelet count to 75,000 from 50, 000. They also took him of the Lovenox which is a blood thinner to prevent blood clots in the legs and lungs. We hope it helps.
