Moderate Aplastic Anemia

I have been diagnosed with moderate aplastic anemia for the last 10 years. My counts have been slowly decreasing. I have gone out to NIH and was told to wait on treatment until my symptoms worsen. At my most recent appointment with my hematologist it was recommended that I go ahead with the ATG protocol. I am very reluctant. I am wondering if anyone has any insight or suggestions. My most recent counts were Platelets 30,000 Hgb 8.2, ANC 2000.
Something unusual about my case is that my father also had aplastic anemia. He lost his fight with the disease 1983.
I have found this forum to be incredible helpful and thank all of you that contribute to it. Any suggestions that may help my decision would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. Becky
