Today I finally got a break from treatment. After eight consecutive days of having plasma exchange, today I’ve been allowed a day off! And to top it off, I’m being allowed out of hospital for a few hours leave! Definitely a good day today!
This is what my plasma machine looks like.
It filters the plasma in my blood and replaces it with donor plasma. Thank god for blood donors! Every session I use twelve bags of plasma! That’s insane when I think about it. The machine itself is very peaceful and painfree thankfully. Hopefully I won’t be needing to use this machines again. Fingers crossed!
