Infusion of a different kind!

Hi!!! Yesterday started early and was the busiest day I've had in a week since taking time off work. Today I had an eight o'clock appointment at the hospital to have an echo-cardiogram done. It is an ultrasound is to measure the percentage of blood my heart is ejecting. Last time (six months ago) it was fifteen percent, which is severe! Yes I was working full time teaching Year Ones last year and this year with heart failure!!! Two weeks ago a blood test discovered that my iron is very low so they gave me an iron infusion today.

Of course nothing goes fast in hospitals but Im glad that I could get the treatment for free. It only took fifteen minutes for the iron to go in via drip then I had to wait half an hour to make sure I had no side effects like not being able to breathe! 

When I arrived home I made a hot, refreshing cup of Early Grey (I much prefer this kind of infusion!) and a delicious, salad sandwich! 

Have you ever had an iron infusion? Or any infusions of any kind? Do you like needles? I can never watch them put it in to my arm! YUCK!

Until next time!
Happy Crafting!
