In black and white
Back in Children's Assessment again. This time referred by the GP.
Owen's had a bit of a 'tan' for a while, people were commenting on it at his last dilatation, and the GP suspected that it might be anaemia. So Louisa and Owen (picking up Aaron on the way) were dispatched to Children's Assessment for blood tests. Blood tests that got a special delivery treatment from the Blood Sciences team. It felt very odd to be looking at my own son's blood film* and results.
I knew before the doctors that he is indeed anaemic. He now has another new drug to add to his daily regime. It took far too long to decide all of that.
