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.
