Veronica needed a blood transfusion today which is fairly routine for a 24 weeker. She had multiple transfusions during the first few weeks but hadn't needed one in quite some time. While we were assured this was nothing to be concerned about, it still felt like a step back. I hated seeing her get an IV put into her hand, although she didn't even cry when they put it in. And they had to stop her feedings for 7 hours which is standard procedure for a transfusion. She will keep the IV in overnight and they will draw some labs in the morning. Hopefully the IV can come out after that...and stay out.
