blood transfusion ... chemotherapy

On the 16th dawn of Chemo … I headed off to Holy Spirit Hospital for a blood transfusion …

Blood transfusion? What am I Keith Richards?

Having lost too many friends and co-workers during the 70’ and 80’s die to AIDS … I watched in fascination at the checks and balances of modern transfusions kicked in.

Two (2) bags I’m told should produce some positive result in 24 – 48 hrs  …until then … mo' hot towels

    1. I must give Megan credit for the headdress. COLD!!! YES!!!more like a frozen slush drip :

  2. In my new job I give blood almost every day. Have to learn that headdress setup. You look so styling. Hope you're feeling better by now.
