Wow! Long day so far. All week her red blood cells danced around at 21%. If they hit 20% she has to have a transfusion. We came in almost every day with the anticipation that we would need more red blood. Well, today was that day. The transfusion takes four hours plus one hour set up time. That is quite a long time to sit in a chair with your bored four year old. That said, she did great. We have been given lots of sit down activities from friends and I brought a ton of food. Plus, they had Aladdin to watch. Princess Jasmine is her favorite.
My favorite moment was when the nurse brought me coffee. She had just explained to Hannah that the red blood cells would help her feel better and give her more energy. When my coffee came Hannah asked the nurse if that's what mommy's get to feel better.
