This new normal can really get you down -- somehow you need to learn to take each new piece of information as just new information. Try not to worry with every change (I know it is very difficult -- I too worry over everything). It really does get a little easier as time goes on because you become more educated and education helps ease the mind. My husband's platelets played games when he was going through his treatments..... mostly lower but they were at times higher. His numbers have stabilized but he has been off of chemo for a little over a month -- but it will start all over again as he starts up again next Monday.

It could be a number of things. To help ease your mind -- ask his onc for an explanation -- at least then you will understand better the cause of the change and it will help you and your husband to make good decisions for you -- based on your situation. I hope this helped a little.

Good luck to you and hang in there -- hugs to you both.
