Update #2 Noon (or so) Thursday
June 16th, 2011 by Mike

They gave me 2 more units of blood last night. When I came in Monday night my hemoglobin was 5.9 (extremely low). Male normal is 10-14. After Tuesday’s 3 units of blood and the EGD ulcer repair it was 8.2 so they wanted to get me up higher, thus the 2 extra units. This morning my hemo was 10.2. We’re all pleased.

Depending on what the noon reading is and what the doctors say, I may get to go home later this afternoon/evening.

Other than the cold soup and warm popsicles, I’m doing fine.

I appreciate all the prayers and well wishes. Thank you.

    Hey Mike, So sorry you have been going through this, but God is good and you are on the mend. Your case should serve as a reminder that donating blood is so important. Did they give you a warm blanket for your arm? Blood is cold when it goes it as I have found out…

    No warm blanket for the arm, but the blood didn’t seem to be cold.
