Hi Faye - if you just type those words into a Google search bar, you should come up with the info you need. Except for elliptocytes and Rouleaux I used to get all those on my results too. They indicate abnormal shapes or sizes of your red cells. I know that macrocytes can be influenced by B12 or folate deficiency.

Good that you are coping so well with Vidaza.

Like you I am tremendously grateful for people who give blood. IgG is extracted from plasma and one infusion can made up of plasma from 10-50,000 donors. Incredible, eh!
