This is a Win-Win situation!

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Thank you all for your well wishes!

I just got tired of eating yesterday. So I was down again today. But I came to a decision last night - this is a win-win situation.

If my platelets are up I will donate platelets.

If my platelets are not up, I will donate whole blood again.

Donating platelets thins the blood naturally. Not having a high enough count means my blood doesn't need to be thinned. Win-win.

Today they will take a pre-count for my donation on Thursday. But I just can't keep trying to eat to gain. I did manage 2 lbs though! Today 120.4!

Love you,
Linda

    Linda. If you are supposed to donate platlette's it will work out if not, no. You can't control everything your body chooses to do my friend. Stick with win-win-,

Love ya,

    These platelets are a great metaphor for life - You can only give what you already have enough of!

Every day is a "good" day when you can set your course and then take whatever life throws your way and find the lesson in it and continue on your way.

You continue to be an inspiration to me on this journey. All the best to you!

    Thanks for your good wishes, and thanks for understanding that I may not be around much.

Best wishes to you on finding a "best weight" for your health! I, too, am having to look at overall health issues, and while some of that may respond to weight loss, low blood sugar causes pain, so I'll be careful about how.

Depending on other things, I might even be back online on a limited basis! I just wanted to stop by to wish you well in case i don't get a chance later. Your support and good wishes have been very dear and very important to me.

I thank you.

    Great attitude to have! I know what you mean about being "tired of eating" though. I get tired too. I hope your platelets are up! Good luck!
