Blood work

Back on St. Patrick’s day I had 80 bazillion vials of blood drawn. Okay it was actually only 20, but that’s still a lot.  Dr. B wanted to check for everything under the sun to find out if anything was wrong with me to cause my cord to fail.  I got a call from Dr. B 2 weeks later with the results.  I don’t have any blood clotting disorders and almost everything came back normal. The autoimmune disease test came back positive.  I have an appointment with a rheumatologist on May 3rd to give more blood get more testing done.

Speaking of blood, I asked Dr. B when I can donated blood again. She told me I can donate in June and then not again because we’ll be actively trying to conceive again at some point. She said that she was almost in tears because I’m still trying to do things for others during all of this. I have to though, I want to give back for all the help,love and support that we got with Aidan. After we get done with the March for Babies I plan on figuring out how to organize a blood drive. Aidan was given blood and platelets so I want to help replenish the blood bank.

I love you Aidan Christopher!
