Val has been sleeping a lot these past two days due to fatigue and low blood levels. On Tuesday she had a short visit from her friend Ginny. Val was able to give her back a pair of gold earrings Ginny had given to Val. She had intentions of doing this for at least a month as I had made her write Ginny's name in the box so I wouldn't forget to whom I was suppose to give them to. How special that Val got to do it herself!!! I am sure the visit was very special to both women.
Today, the WBC is 7ooo normal low is 10,000. Her RBC dropped from 7.5 to 6.5 so she went up to CVH at 11:45 today for two units of blood. She is still there at 6pm as I type this as they had a difficult time matching her blood today. Dad is with her as well as Rudy and Lea who always stay the entire time she ever gets a transfusions. Pray for no transfusion side effects for Val as she has experienced some bad ones from transfusions in the past.
Love and prayers to Val always....Salynn
