Tonight Blake is receiving a blood transfusion due to declining hemoglobin levels. Dr. Bedros said that this should make him feel better quickly. And our nurses reassured us that this is very common for the patients on our floor. Blake had an initial reaction to the transfusion that was negative. But Benadryl was administered and had positive results.
Blake's transfusions are done through his port, so they are completely painless.
Please pray that these transfusions go smoothly and re-energize our son.
