Set Back

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

I got to donate blood yesterday at the Red Cross donation bus :) My blood pressure was good so they were able to take my blood. With my blood type being rare (B-) they said it's always a good thing when someone with a rare blood type comes in to donate because there is a short supply.

It's freezing cold this morning when I went for my walk. I'm finishing up my sparking for the day and then I'll be doing some exercises, weighing in, drinking my green tea, eating breakfast (cottage cheese with sliced strawberries), and then going to visit my uncle at the rehab facility. He had another set back so he won't be coming home this week either. He's become shaky, tired, weak, not much stamina or energy, became sweaty and short of breath during physical therapy on Monday, and his blood pressure has gone up. They're monitoring him and running more blood tests on him to see what's going on and to figure out if something else might be wrong with him.

    I'm sorry about your uncles set back Lisa. I know you were looking forward to bringing him home. I'll be praying they figure out what's wrong and are able to quickly treat it.

    Sorry about your uncle, luckily he is in a place where they can monitor him and take care of him. It's better he doesn't come home too early and end up re-injuring himself.
    Praying for him that he recovers soon!
    Great job donating blood, that is awesome to think of others like that, especially with a rare blood type!
