Well the steroids worked. My platelets doubled and went up to 145,000! I am thrilled because this means if surgery is necessary I will be ok. It also means I can have an epidural, and any internal bleeding should be a very rare event. I am thrilled!!! This means I did have ITP for sure, which sounds bad but is a relief to me because it explains everything. So they are keeping me on the meds and bed rest until I deliver. My blood pressure was a little elevated, my potassium was low, and B12 was low, but besides that I looked PERFECT!!!!!!!!! HOORAY!!!!!!!! Now we just have to wait to see Jude on Thursday.
