Frankie is in the hospital tonight. He went in for a urine culture and they drew blood. The blood work showed, among other things, very decreased platelet count. They think he has something akin to lupis, but where the immune disease is attacking the blood cells. He's been hemmoraging, which can explain most of the symptoms he's had of late. He's on steroids and hopefully will respond well to that. If he makes it through the night, and if it is what they think it is, his prognosis is fair to good.

We're worried. Please keep him in your thoughts. More tomorrow.
