Thanks for your reply. Wow, 6 IS low. Did you have any tachycardia? (rapid heart beat)? I can't believe I was working full time and running around all over the place with a Hg of 8. I always felt fatigued around that time. I think the cutt off for a blood transfusion is 8 as well. Thanks for the feedback, all of your responsed put things in perspective. It helps a lot.
I am glad you have never flared like that again, me either.
