I received the call that Clark needed a blood transfusion; his hemoglobin was dropping too fast, so they wanted him to come to ER immediately. However, considering it was rush hour, and the kids were hungry, we decided that the best course of action would be to take the kids out for pizza. It was well worth it, especially since there is a play structure at the restaurant.
Clark arrived at the Children’s ER around 8:30pm. It took 2 tries to get Clark’s IV. He was not happy about that, but I know it could have been much worse. Clark is so tough, so seeing him scream and cry hurts my heart. Clarks transfusion started at 11:30pm, and was given slowly over a 3 hour timeframe.
Clark was admitted to the hospital around midnight.
