9 April 2009

No fever to date, but yesterday the community nurse took a sample of Jeremy's blood to check his blood counts. She telephoned later in the afternoon to let us know that his haemoglobin (red blood cell count) was low, and therefore he needed to have a blood transfusion. We were surprised, because he has had so much energy over the past few days and we thought that his haemoglobin would be higher. So today we went to hospital for a 3.5 hour blood transfusion.
