Another Transfusion

Reba was a trooper yesterday with her full day of chemotherapy. Today we came back for what we thought would be a quick Neulasta injection. We got here at 9, our appointment time and they let us know the Neulasta must be given 24-48 hours after chemo. Since her last chemo drug was given at 2 pm yesterday we had to wait till at least 2 today, they said. Good information to have for the future!!

So in the meantime they did a blood test and it showed her hemoglobin has dropped to 7.8, which is well below normal range.

Now she is having her third blood transfusion.

So much for a “quick” day.

Thanks for the prayers and support.
