It all revolves around blood.

We had visitors today! My "old" friend and I went out to brunch, and  friends from church came a little later and brought Glenn a wonderful electric razor. He was instructed not to use his usual straight razor because of the chance of getting a cut, which would take a long time to stop bleeding because of his low blood count. It was so encouraging to have visitors,and Glenn doesn't look scruffy now with a good shave.
Glenn got platelets last night but didn't need blood at that time. The nurse told us there were 7 patients here who got platelets. There must have been a good sale on platelets in town! He will get more platelets tonight and still possibly blood. He gets his blood drawn every night to know how his counts are doing and if he needs any blood products. They give those during the night. Still no fever and has all his hair, but our friend has started losing his hair so Glenn's "falling out" shouldn't be far behind. You will be the first to know when it happens. I might even figure out how to get some pictures on this blog, if we're lucky.

  1. Is it possible to donate blood or platelets to Glenn? I know we aren't the same type, but I've heard of people having an "account" for donations. Sorry if this has been asked before. Praying for y'all many times a day : )
