Katie's Blood Counts Dangerously Low!!

CPS informed us that Katie's blood counts were dangerously low, but would not tell us the level. They said she would probably be admitted to the hospital on Saturday for a blood transfusion. Again we requested that they use Michele's blood due to religious beliefs and concerns about the safety of public blood and CPS refused to honor our request. There is time to take and prepare the blood from Michele before Saturday. CPS is without excuse this time in violating our religious beliefs.

A blood transfusion is not normally needed after the first chemo like this, but may become necessary after 3 or 4 chemo rounds. However, remember they carelessly and needlessly removed Katie's thymus gland and did not allow time to heal and recover from that major surgery before doing this chemo.
