Dr. Law came in today to look at Kamryn. Her iron, salt and red blood cells are low. They are doing more blood work today for a metabolic, red blood cell and iron testing, then they will be giving her some more blood. Her ability to keep up or create her own red blood cells being tested. She gets a shot on fridays to increase the production of red blood cells as well iron by mouth. I is possible to give her iron by IV. It is not unusual to have issues with red blood cells as a baby or as a heart patient. But the combination may be creating more of a problem. Today Mike and the boys went home. I will miss them, as I do all of my family.
