Hemoglobin CRASH

Ok, now I'm worried.

I did my monthly bloodwork today. I did it this morning, dropped it off at the hospital, then headed to school to sign up with the HRPA. Thank goodness class was cancelled today because I totally would not be able to make it through the day.

Well my nurse called me just a few moments ago. My hemoglobin is currently 68 (or 6.8). This is horribly low..a bit over HALF of what it should be. I have been feeling exhausted these past few weeks. What is going on here? What's happening to me?

PLEASEEEEE don't be a flare....PLEASEEE! This is bad news all around. If its not a flare and its a matter of me getting a blood transfusion, then that means more antibodies...and more problems when trying to get a kidney.

Gosh. The life of a 20-something with lupus indeed.

That's so scary. I hope that you're not in a flare and that everything will be okay.

I'm definitely praying for you. Flares are awful. I hope nothing prevents you from getting a kidney.
