Unexpected blood transfuion

Ellie went into Our Ladys yesterday as arranged to have bloods taken and a change of dressings.
Only two hours in hospital but as happened a few weeks ago she wasn't long home when the hospital rang requesting Ellie go back in for a blood transfusion. This was totally out of the blue as Ellie was in good spirits and was beginning to get her appetite back.

Blood transfusions are a common procedure when undergoing chemo.
We were uncomfortable early on with blood transfusions, and although we are not happy about it they are a necessity.

Blood transfusion went well and home for 9pm after a long day.

Talk soon
