I wish I had good news. However, my anemia is continuing to worsen rapidly (my hematocrit is now 23, so I have about 1/2 have the blood that I had one year ago) and we don’t know why. I can’t imagine how someone could feel worse and still be alive. My plans for physical rehab and exercising is out the window as it takes all my strength to go from one room to another. I’m in great need for a transfusion as soon as I can get a hold of my hematologist. But that will only give temporary relief of my symptoms. We never saw this coming, especially with no clear answers. I remain quite discouraged and just shy of feeling hopeless in this marathonic journey.
