First Transfusion

Caleb was admitted and made it up to his room around noon.  Here, he was looking over the menu trying to decide what he wanted for dinner.  

This board has the goals for going home.
1. Four red blood transfusions
2. One platelet transfusion
3. Observe overnight

I took a picture of how pale his skin was compared to mine.  I know the lighting is pretty bad, but my hand is a normal pink...and Caleb's hand is drained of most color.

(He ended up getting only three of the four they initially requested and the platelet transfusion.  He said it didn't hurt too bad but his arm did get pretty sore.)
