With Jacki's heroic effort, today, 7/1/14, 14 more was collected. And that makes the score 57/125.

Our Girl hated to owe anyone anything. In the last year of her life, she was always upset with the amount of fluids she was using. Say what you want about the American Medical Establishment, they never hesitated to give what she needed at the time. Even when it was clearly like pouring it down the drain! She was using AT LEAST 2 pints of packed blood and 1 bag of platelets. She got what she needed to stay alive.
Final score: 125 pints and 75 bags in a losing effort.
I always calmed her down with: "Don't worry. I'll replace it." "Promise?" "Yup!"
To date, I've replaced 88 bags.
I'm taking a break "to get my shots". (The new doc says that I'm at real risk. I told him I didn't care, but he won with the argument that I couldn't help folks if I was sick.)
Why does that sound like taking the dog to the vet. Took 2 yesterday, 3 to go, a colonoscopy and I can get back to business.
