Third Transfusion

Mum had her third blood transfusion today. I left the hospital right after the transfusion was completed therefore I am unaware if it is doing her any good. Her appetite is still poor. She looked so frail. I am beginning to get really worried for her. The illness has dragged on for far too long. The doctors have been very conservative with their treatment thus far. Perhaps it is time for a second opinion and more treatment options.

I learnt to operate the washing machine for the first time today as the laundry was piling up. I thought it would be difficult because I have never washed a piece of clothing in my life before. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised! The fuzzy logic automates most of the task and removes the guessing altogether. After I put the laundry in, the LED lit up and indicated the amount of detergent to use. It then filled itself up with the appropriate amount of water and started the wash and spin cycles all by itself. I have heard of fuzzy logic before but this is the first time I have seen it in action. And I am amazed!
