Gertrude is scheduled for a Craniotomy in the Bloodless Surgery Program at Swedish Medical Center, Seattle WA Thursday 9:00 AM. The words 'blood tranfusion' did not enter the conversation, which were among the first words uttered by her previous surgeon.
Fom here on it is just OLD preaching, pay no attention.
(I fail to see why such a small portion of our brothers take advantige of the many Bloodless Medicine facilities, instead accepting their local surgeons word when they say "I won't give you blood," Which promise goes out the window when complications set in. Then your family realizes what the surgeon actually meant was "no blood? OK, I will let you die." This often places a burden on family members not in the Truth, and on the HLC who get a midnite call to fight for you on an issue that could have been resolved by a little more forsight and perhaps traveling just a little further to support these hospitals that serve our brothers.)
Thanks again for all the kind thought and prayers you have expressed in our behalf

You are so right Jerry. I was at Good Sam in Portland when I needed a very bloody surgery a few years ago, the hospital staff were incredible and the Liaison staff were there every step of the way. Why take chances.
Am going to be thinking about you both tomorrow morning.
