transfusion



I'm going to have a transfusion of 2 units of PRBCs on Saturday at 10am.  I had the type and cross match this afternoon after chemo.  My WBC, RBC, HGB, HCT were all in the toilet.  I won't get anything for the decreased WBC until after my anemia is improved.  I guess I get to walk around wearing a mask for a few days.

CT Scan

Went for CT Scan of chest.  Felt like a pin cushion when I left.  Took 3 tries to find a vein that would not only bleed, but would accept a flush.  Finally wound up with the saline lock in the space at the bottom of my thumb on my right hand.  That's a new one for me!  Hope the scan doesn't show anything.
