Iron Transfusion and Other Things

My first of eight iron transfusions went well yesterday.  HH took me in, and I was actually only on the IV pump for 28 minutes.  I came home, took a nap, and we went to the movie discussion group.  We discussed Tell No One, a French film.  I really enjoyed the film.

Today I was going to get my hair cut and colored, but the lady that normally does it wasn't working today.  I am going to get it done before going to Boston.  I decided to go take my brother lunch.  He works at Papa John's Headquarters as an analyst.  It was different seeing my brother in such a professional light.  I realize that he is an adult, and that is wild.

As far as "feeling" the iron transfusion starting to work....I can tell that I am experiencing a slight increase in my mental alertness.  I also have woke up feeling rested today from the night's sleep, and from the nap that I took. 

The Scale read 135.6 this morning.  I'm not trying to lose weight.  The last time I weighed this was in the fifth grade.  Talk about something hard to wrap your mind around.

HH and I are having a double movie feature night at home with the Penguins of Madagascar and The Tooth Fairy.

Glad to hear the first transfusion went well, and that it seems to making a difference already. I'm jealous that you'll be watching The Penguins tonight!
