Whites are still good; platelets are okay; hemoglobin is already plunging in a hurry. It was 10.9 the day before admission; last night it was 8.4. They want to see us Friday morning for his next check, and he'll probably need blood. The cutoff for needing it is 8.0.
If my hemoglobin were 8.4, I would NOT have been bouncing off the walls the way that The Boy was last night. But I'm not a toddler.
