I was up at around 8:00am yesterday to get ready for my blood transfusion. 2 units today, I don't think I have any of my blood left, it is all a pick and mix of the wonderful people in this country who donate their blood. I wish I could return it, I only ever did 1 pint and that was when there was an appeal for blood for the troops in Iraq.
I drove to the hospital and parked up, I got there for 10:00am. I went into my room, the one I would have for the day. I eventually saw an anesthetist at 11:00am, he put a cannula in my hand, hitting a valve so it was only part way in but enough for the transfusion. All done, it's back to the room to start the transfusion, 2 bags of the Count's best blood please Vlad ..... : )
It was started at 11:30, I had lunch, a salad sandwich and a yogurt, first bag finished at 2:30pm, 2nd bag started at 2:45pm and finished at 5pm. I restful day today, stuck to the bed, I did fall asleep at one point. After it was all done, I drove home, my little car is not happy with the rain, I either need a new one or need to get her fixed. I got home, got myself changed and went off to my Neice in laws 21st birthday party, I didn't stay long as I was feeling tired. I stayed long enough though to see my sister, Wendy and her daughter, Rochelle and to say happy birthday to the birthday girl, Caroline. It was a lovely night, I want a party to go to when I am feeling on tip top form. I am sure there will be others.
Kieran was going, then he wasn't, then he was, he didn't in the end. Tday I am catching up on shopping and see what happens with the day.
