Ruby Tuesday

Over on my other blog I'm taking part in several photo challenges with various themes. On Tuesdays there's one called Ruby Tuesday, and what an opportunity to post about blood and stem cells and a red hospital door! Check it out at A picture in time. Just click on the link and it should take you there. And while you're there, why not check out the rest of that blog too?  :-)

Sigve went to Haugesund Hospital yesterday. It was supposed to be a quick visit, but he had a lowered level of hemoglobin, i.e. a touch of anemia, so they gave him a blood transfusion. And because his blood type is in the process of changing to that of Gerd's, he does not have one of the regular blood types at the moment, so it's complicated, and they have to mix a special cocktail for him. So he left at 8 am and got back at 5.15 pm. That's a long, tiring day for him. 

Back home he decided on a good rest in his easy chair,
and we skipped going for a walk.

In the evenings Sigve likes to compare himself to Gandhi (from the movie). It has something to do with the skinny legs, the bald head, the white robe, and the glasses (I keep saying they should be rounder...) 
It has nothing to do with world peace LOL!
(Somehow, this hospital robe had stowed away 
in his suitcase when we got home.)



Today I am grateful for:
*The amazing ability of the body to actually change it's blood type
*The equally amazing ability of modern medicine to mix a suitable blood cocktail for this stage
*New (and old!) facebook and blog friends
