PLATELETS HAVE FINALLY ARRIVED

Just a quick update! My platelets finally arrived. It is now 9:30 pm. I mentioned earlier today that I was supposed to get them this morning. Because I need a certain type of platelet, Red Cross actually flew them here to Las Vegas from Arizona. So…they are here and I am currently getting the transfusion. This just exemplifies the need for people to donate blood and platelets if they are able to.

It takes about an hour for the transfusion. You know what that means! I have a one hour date with Buddy Braun.

I also came across this great visual aid of explaining exactly what AML is and how it effects the body. I thought some of you mind find it interesting.

And last but not least, I finished my ios 7 update for my iPhone! I think it will be worth it! I just need to get used to the new look and few new features. Now how’s all that for my 7th day in the hospital?!
