Too high in the AM, normal by PM. They pulled labs as soon as Bo was admitted, and they were normal! But, his hemoglobin is a little low (from all the labs!) and they want to run some extra iron into him. Some people are allergic, so the first (and sometimes second) iron infusion is run in the hospital. The nurses monitor vitals every 15 minutes for the 1st 4 hours is the protocol. So we're not here for no reason. And we got to see his GI and are waiting to see his nephrologist and hemotologist. It would have been impossible to schedule all three in the same 2 days with such short notice, so I'll consider it a wash. Meantime, Bo and Jose are catching up on their sleep. What a way to spend your birthday, poor Jose.
