The apheresis process causes a reduction in platelets, so I’m going to get some before I’m sent home for the day. I’ve never had any blood products before. I just received 2 Tyelnol caplets and one Benedryl caplet. The platelets will be here in about 10 minutes. I’ll take a picture so you can see what they look like.

    You mean you are doing your own camera work in the apheresis? As far as photos of the platelets–a bag is a bag is a bag except it is yellow! Did the 2 Tyelnol caplets and one Benedryl caplet make you sleepy? I always get a good snooze.

    I love pictures! Would like to see the platelets.

    We three are thinking about you all the time Beth, wishing for the best.
