This is quite as always. I just learnt a couple of new stuff and this is one of the reasons I love reading your blog (might not have time to comment always but I do read every piece). I don't have any experience relating to anemia but have ptsd from a terrible experience relating to blood transfusion. A colleague's wife was transfused with the wrong blood and she was lost in no time. Months later, my wife gave birth in the same hospital as she needed blood. You can imagine my horror. Anyway, I donated blood and everything went well.
Thanks for always educating us in an interesting way.
