The visiting nurse took a blood sample from Val and found a low (red, white or platelets we don't really know) blood cell count. Dad drove Val up to Central Vermont Hospital in Montpelier for one or two pints of blood transfusions. Rudy and Lea went to the hospital today to relieve Dad and be with Val. Baine and Denise are going to pick up Dad at 10:00 pm to bring her home around 11 pm. No way to ring in the new year that is for sure. We are happy Dad asked Baine and Denise to help him get Val home tonight. She will sleep better in her own bed. Well, she will feel like a million dollars now that she has the blood she needs to circulate in her body. She is eating, pooping, sleeping, and now she will have the strength she is actually regaining!!!!
Love, prayers and good health to Val and all in 2009. Salynn
