Bloody lip + Low platelets = ???

Well, his platelets aren't THAT low, just on the low side.

The Boy was playing downstairs with me when I got a phone call from a buddy with whom I haven't spoken in a long time. He left to go back upstairs, tripped, and two teeth cut his lip.

It's not a big deal. It's something toddlers and young children do all the time. It was just a tad more dramatic because of the moderately low platelet count. No panic - just put direct pressure on the lip while restraining a child in agony. He went to Grandma for comfort, which is fine by us.
