So, I feel like Bella from Twilight ( only it will take me 5 hours to get my fill of blood). She’s a vampire in a vampire movie, in case you are over 13. After I gave blood yesterday ( which I do 3 days a week) they determined that I needed 2 units of blood today. This morning I was really feeling it. I was winded after taking a shower and had to lay down to recover. Light headed, a little nauseous, and weak, we made it to the infusion lab to get hooked up. I feel lucky that this will help. There is a 19 yr old boy across from me that mentioned to the nurse that he has had whatever he has since he was 10 and has had his colon removed as well as parts of his bowel, his intestines and a few other surgeries. He was patient and kind to the nurses who had to call in a specialist to get his blood because every place they stuck him wouldn’t work. There is always someone who has it harder-no matter what I am suffering through. God is in control of it all and gives us the peace and strength that doesn’t make sense to get through it. Grateful, thankful and humble.
