Rooster Update

Just a quick update for those of you waiting on my call with the results of Rooster's blood test. I talked to the nurse at Primary Children's and found out that it will take 3-4 weeks for the results to come back. Apparently, the lab has to watch the way his platelets function over a period of 2-3 weeks and then they will type up the report and send it to Primary. At this time, they are trying to find out if there is a genetic "malfunction" within his platelets, if they don't find a genetic reason for his platelets being so high we will have to do further testing. I know its not much info but it is all we've got right now. We should know more in a few weeks.
