    DefaultSome happy news

    Mira has been in chronic renal failure for awhile now and last month her hematocrit was way down to 29. I have been giving her iron tablets for a month and while it is not great at 30, at least it has stopped dropping. She even seems to be more lively for a girl who will be 14 in February!

    When you have renal failure, you get anemic. You measure anemia by the hematocrit (among other tests) and so I am glad it is not dropping anymore. The iron pills seem to be working for now anyway.
