They managed to squeeze enough blood out of me last week to prove that my sugar levels remain stable and acceptable, and...
(wait for it)
... my ferritin level is at 35!
About bloomin' time, I say.
Doctor dear says to continue with one palafer iron pill a day now for maintenance.
The Pharmacist and I have concluded that one of those mega-horse-pill-iron doses every 2 or 3 days is sufficient. When I finish the rest of the palafer iron I'll get a much lower dose supplement for maintenance.
Shall we have a party or just quietly celebrate with strong tea and cookies.
It's cold and rainy outside.
I vote for the tea.
