T + 27 Topped Up

Posted by raetsel at Monday, October 13, 2008

I'm just back from the day unit having had two units of red blood cells. I've now had 12 units in total since April of this year. ( You have considered becoming a blood donor, haven't you? ;o)

I'm still type O+ at the moment, the switch over to my donor's blood group ( A+ ) usually happens some time around 120 days after the transplant. Mind you since O+ is the universal donor, it wouldn't do any harm to have O+ when I do switch to A+

I'm back at the flat now just taking it easy, though I might see if the new red cells mean I can iron more than one and a half shirts at a time.

Next appointment is the transplant clinic on Wednesday.
