KATIE RECEIVES BLOOD TRANSFUSION

Katie's ANC, platelets and hemoglobin were dangerously low again. Katie received 2 units of red blood and one unit of platelets.

Once again we were not notified of the emergency by CPS. Katie told us. Michele was not asked to come and donate blood nor have they ever tested her blood. Once again they violate our religious rights. The doctors know this will happen in advance and could have arranged to collect, test, and store Michele's blood for Katie's use. They have to process someone else's blood the same way to give her. It is much safer to use Michele's blood for Katie than unknown and possibly unsafe public blood supply. Michele and Katie are of the same flesh and blood.
