Count platelets: The blood count that Junior will get will be a check on a variety of things including white cells; most applicable to nosebleeds will be the platelets. I expect this will come back normal. If it doesn't, it can signal a variety of illnesses, some mild, some serious. Worry about that when the results are back.
