Since the hurricane, we haven't had internet/cable, so I can't update as often as I might like. Today we've been at the hospital since this morning. Low blood counts meant weekend bloodwork. Hemoglobin of 6.4 (roughly half the normal level for a woman, and the lowest she's ever had)meant transfusion of red blood cells today. Mmm, yum. It takes about five or six hours for the transfusion, once we get in a room. Still, even with such low blood counts, she is in good spirits, but very tired.
