My hemoglobin is low, so the oncology nurses told me I need blood.
I am a little freaked out about getting someone else's blood.
If I have to get blood, I would rather get it from someone I know. Apparently, that is way more complicated. So, I am getting blood from some random person.
The nurses assure me that the blood is checked and safe. It is still wierd.
I came in today, Sunday morning, to receive two "portions" of blood.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
