I received a call from Nursing home yesterday saying my Mom needs to see an oncologist that her Doctor thinks she has Thrombocytopenia.  I looked it up in Google and found on Mayo Clinic it usually means patient has Leukemia, immune system disorder or medication side effect and is due to a low platelet count.  They want me to go with my Mom to a hospital pretty far away for tests.  What tests I do not know. This is really all the info I have and I do not like it.  My Mom is sick enough and I am not looking forward to stressing her out with this visit or listening if they say she needs chemo.  I am trying to get more information on what they plan to test, why we must go to a hospital far away, etc.
