Anemia in Preemies - Dr mentioned doing some blood test on my 29 day old preemie
I was told today that my daughter will be having some more blood tests to check her blood count for anemia. They said that they count is a little lower than they would like and they want to re-test it. Th Dr. said she may have to have a blood transfusion depending on how low the count is when they take the lab work. Anyone have a preemie who had issues with anemia? I'm scared about the blood transfusion. My husband told me not to worry about it that the Dr said it is normal. Also, trying to not to worry cause the blood count may come back okay. I'm having a hard time dealing with my preemie still being in NICU and it seems as if there is always something different everyday that they say she can't come home till it is better. Just looking for some support.
