Friday transfusions

Luckily my IV held up OK, so I did not have to get stuck again this morning. My hip is pretty sore from the bone marrow biopsy, but it's not unbearable. I had Benadryl and slept through most of the morning's activity. Both units of red cells were extra full, so I got more red blood than usual. We got home and when I went to get out of the car I was bleeding from the IV site. My bandage was soaked. But by now we have learned not to panic. Not looking at it I applied pressure while Mike went to get new bandage supplies. He cleaned it up and rebandaged. Now I seem to be fine. Sleepy, but fine.

I'm glad everything went well today for you and the IV held up.

Loved your story about Pico and Sunshine, and also the pics of your soon to be new red washer/dryer!

Take care of yourself!
