2019-11-24 Living with Cancer Day 991

Today was a OK day! It started with me sleeping in until 8:30. After a good breakfast Dianne took me down to Sutter Delta MC for a type and cross. The crossmatching is to find a compatible blood type for transfusion. The results of blood typing will tell you if you are type A, B, AB, or O and if you are Rh negative or positive. Normally this takes no less than one hour, however, thanks to a mix up, today it took over two and a half hours. The crossmatching was only ordered in case the CBC draw scheduled for Monday would show a blood transfusion was needed in addition to the scheduled Platelets transfusion. Because of the delay, a CBC draw was taken as well. As it turns out the CBC results showed the need for a blood transfusion in addition to the platelet transfusion. I will be checking in to the hospital tomorrow morning 9:00.

Because of the delay at the hospital, getting back home it was almost time for lunch. I therefore spend some time with Dean until Denise came home for lunch. After lunch, I rested since the visit at the hospital took a bit too much out of me. Dianne also hooked me up with my hydration and then cut my hair in the backyard. Before I knew it was late afternoon, time to work on today’s blog.

There is not much more to write about, things started to settle down, getting ready with the schedule for the next three days before checking in with UCSF at Parnassus Heights. For dinner, we had cheese broccoli soup in bread bowl.

That’s it for today, which was a very active day for me.
