Getting Ready for Transfusions (Mailynas Version)
For my transfusion is not easy some times. Before I go to my transfusion I need to get my blood drawn. At my transfusion I take my height,weigh myself, and stay there for about 5 hour. Wile I'm there I have a bag filled with goodies. In my bag I like to bring movies, books, homework, beads, and my emla. I wear emla so that when they poke me in my port, it wont hurt so much. While I'm at my transfusion, I start to miss school and my friends. I start to think of what they are doing and how much fun they are having. But on the other hand I am looking forward to seeing all my doctors there. My favorite thing to do there is doing crafts with Gina. Gina is a child life advocate/supporter. She is a very nice person to spend time with. Another person to spend with is Stacey. Me and her both made up a hand shake together. This is how it goes; elbow elbow ,wrist wrist, touch your pearls, blow a kiss. When ever I go in room 1 she a and I do the hand shake in the air. After my transfusion me, my sister and my pop or mom go to Fentons for ice cream.
