I have been hospitalized 3 times in the past 2 months. I am diabetic, have heart disease, kidney failure and after this last visit I have a GI bleed, which resulted in the need for the blood. Thanks to the blood donor, I received one transfusion. I am eternally grateful. I am praying they can get to the root of some of these problems. Some are not curable. God willing, I will be strong enough to make a trip in May to Alaska that we have been planning for 2 years.
