My mom received a letter stating that her blood count was lower than it was 6 months ago. not critically low, but I am scared to death. she had a negative fecal occult test. Mom is in her late 70's. The doc keeps pushing her to have a Colonoscopy. Please keep me in your prayers. I am her only child, so I have to be strong. Everything else in her blood work is GOOD. Has anyone gone through this either themselves or with a loved one. I would love to read your stores.
