Transfusions and hospitalizations have been very challenging for me, especially with all the needle pokes. My blood doesn't flow so well through my body, and it gets stuck in my organs. This is very painful for me, but this is how blood transfusions help me. It gives me healthy blood that helps my organs function.
In my 19 months, I've been hospitalized over a half dozen times. Many of those times I required a transfusion. My mommy, daddy and bro bro are all thankful for all blood donors who help people like me.
