First Blood Transfusion

Today I am away to the Heath Hospital in Cardiff for the 1st of my 3 weekly Blood transfusions.

As I have said that my blood is no longer producing enough antibodies and protein so for the next 12 months I am attending the hospital every 3 weeks for a blood transfusion. Today is an all day job.

Having never drank alcohol for many a year, this will be something new having a pint.

Lastly to the person who has donated their blood to help me thank you so much and I will be ever in your debt.

Breath Easy my friends and have a great day.

I hope you do not have to down the pint in one?

I hope it helps you feel better! It should be a bit of a tonic!

Hope it's really helped. My husband had very many of these so the kids and i still give blood when we can.

When he was still alive my daughter organised a give blood get together in Ealing, there were 20 of us! Much more fun than doing it alone and he felt a lot of love from it
