    I have finished my second iron infusion. It really tires me out. Seems like it would energize me, but it does just the opposite! It takes about three days for the side effects to wear off. Hopefully it will start showing up on the CBC.

    My hemoglobin is holding at 9.1, so maybe it will start going back up soon. At least I haven't lost any blood in about
    two weeks...almost three weeks! Praise the Lord!!!!! They will check it again on Thurs when I get my Iron again.

    Merry Christmas Everyone!

    I am glad that your hemoglobin level has gone up (up is up and that is good). Fortunately, you are intelligent enough to know that you do not have to go by what the nurse says. You know your body, you know what your body needs. Keep staying on top of your health and continue learning as much as you can about your illness and how it affects you. Also, know that we are here to help you as much as we can and for as long as you need us. I wish you the best.

    Peace and Blessings
    Look For The Good and Praise It!
