Two Lives Worth Emulating!
Dorothy spent her Thanksgiving holiday (November 23, 2017) receiving a blood transfusion. For those in the know, a normal hemoglobin for a woman her age is 11.7 to 13.8 gm/dL. Dorothy’s was 5.2 when she went into the hospital (i.e., her condition was critical). Nevertheless, no matter how many times she was poked with a needle, or had an I.V. go bad, no matter what time of day or night it was, she thanked everyone in the room for helping her, and wondered when they got to go home to be with their families. The smile evident in this picture never left her face, including when she received chicken broth and a Popsicle for her Thanksgiving dinner. She thanked the nurses for making it, and told them how good it was!
