Arrow Low Platelet Count?

I was getting anxious waiting for the vet to call with Midnite's blood test results so I called. All values are normal except for the platelet count. Thryroid came back normal also. Platelet count is 116,000, normal being 170-400. The vet will be in and will call me tomorrow with the official results, but I need to know now. Should I worry? I'm not to happy with the research I have found on low platelet counts, but then again they are talking a couple thousand being low, so how low is he? I picked the worse time for him to diet, because now he lost the weight and this are making me really nervous. Any thoughts?
