    Sigh, just one more thing......

    I've been having issues with my blood being low ever since July when had my yearly physical. First my doc had me take a special kind of iron for a couple months then checking it again - it was still low, but seemed to be improving....well, got results of 4th test this past week and hemoglobin and hematocrit has gone lower than last test, which could account for my feeling not so great and falling asleep at drop of a hat (even when no hats are dropping lol) So now doc wants me to see a hematologist to see if he can figure out why blood is low. She's trying to get me in to see someone before my apt with her on the 8th of jan. Sigh. All I'm thinking about is having to pay another $40 co payment and wondeirng how many times because will ikely have to see him more than once. Anyone here made of money? lol

    I was hoping this problem would just go away. It still may be no big deal, but it's lingering a long time. I don't think I'm leaking anywhere. lol
