A low platelet count means I’m on rest orders from the doctor. My foster daughter is spending the night at a friend’s house. I’m too cheap to pay for cable so I’m watching The Godfather for the gazillionth time. This means I’m a bit bored silly at the moment.
I’m also totally obsessed with my blood disease, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, right now. This seems to happen any time my counts are lower than 50. (Normal is 150-400; mine are generally around 60-80.)
So, to entertain myself I searched “platelets” on YouTube. And I found a series of three really corny animated videos that I thought I’d share with you.
Apologies for going on and on about platelets. I promise to knock it off as soon as mine get back to “my” idea of normal. (Soon, I hope!) In the meantime, you can bore yourself and your children with lessons in human clot creation! (Yay!)
