Blood, sweat and tears

We know that nosebleeds are a side effect of blood thinners. Lucy had one that lasted for almost 45 minutes. She had another this morning that stopped in about 10 minutes.

We arrived at Fairview Southdale IV Therapy at 7:30 am for her transfusion. The type and match took a little longer than usual, so her transfusion started at 9:00 and finished at 12:45.

She is still extremely tired. Last night she had problems sleeping and she woke up several times. Now she’s home, warm, fed, and relaxing. Her leg isn’t quite as sore as yesterday and the swelling has abated somewhat.

Lucy’s next blood test is Monday afternoon. There may be no updates until then. In the meantime, give your loved ones hugs from us, and thank you for your support!

  1. Hi Lucy. Thinking of you all the time. Those darn bumps in the road can really wear us out. I’m happy to hear of the good care your husband is giving you. It is such a blessing to have that kind of support.
    Take good care, get lost of rest and relaxation and I hope you are able to squeeze in some fun and laughter here and there.

    Hugs and Blessings.
