Stressful day... I went to the gastroenterologist earlier today for a consult and came out with an appointment for December 1st. I'll be having a scope run down my throat to check my stomach for any ulcers & a colonoscopy (this was a surprise to me). In order to do these tests I'll have to quit taking my iron pill (my lifeline as of late) for a week. When the doctor first told me I'd have to quit my iron pill for that period of time I almost told him I wasn't going to do these procedures. But, I know I need to do them. Still...
My hemoglobin was 6.9 on October 23rd. It's supposed to be between 11.5- 15.0. Though it's raised some (8.5) since then I'm still concerned about losing the progress I've recently made. My husband reassures me that everything will be fine. I had more blood work done today so we'll see how much more, if any, my blood has raised by tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed it's been boosted another point or two.
Enough about doctors/ tests. What does everyone think about my November Moon above. Isn't it gorgeous? It looked to be starting its journey across the sky when I returned home from the grocery store tonight. I couldn't resist sharing it here. Hope the night finds everyone well.
