Platelet Transfusion tonight - looks okay...

Ava's platelets are down to 7. They plan on doing a platelet transfusion within the hour. Ava has been pre-medicated, and they did something to the plasma to try and minimize a reaction; please pray for an incident-free transfusion. Thanks!

Update 11:15pm - Transfusion finished about 10 min ago, and looks like no reaction! Thanks for your prayers! 

Update 11:40pm - Well, spoke too soon... looks like Ava's getting some hives, so she got an extra dose of Benadryl and is being observed. Thanks for your continued prayers!

Update: 1:20am - Hives are gone; Ava has a little tummy ache but is settling down to sleep. Thank you so much for your prayers (and for your fellowship in the ups & downs)!
