The drugs DO work

Transfusion number 32 done! Henry kept himself busy with some of his ‘beads of courage’, he gets one every time he has a procedure and he loves playing with them. He’s got so many already, I’m not sure how we’ll lift them soon! But it’s a lovely way of marking his bravery and a little keepsake for the future. We had some really encouraging news too, his latest blood test showed that his ferritin (iron) levels have gone from 3600 to 2600 since starting the daily pump! We’ve got some way to go as we’re aiming for the low hundreds, but it makes it much easier putting him through the needles each night knowing it’s helping him  x
