[QUOTE=chickeb2;4882051]I hope someone can get me an answer. My mom just told me that she had been to her Dr. to get routine blood work after her 70th birthday. Here are the results:

She was confused and I spoke to her nurse, she didn't give me a lot information, but she did say she is Anemic and her Dr has sent in a referral to an oncologist. Someone please help me understand what they are seeing. I am driving up so I can go with her to the Dr. As you can imagine, she is worried, I have brought down some of her anxiety by telling her that you hear of people all the time with Anemia and that's nothing to worry about. Clearly, I'm concerned would just like to have a heads up what all this means before hearing it the first time with her.


They sent me to an oncologoist too..but it was just because if one of those numbers is low the other one is too high or the other way around...the oncologist didn't seem concerned about it and said that the numbers would be right again once the anemia was under control.

How did it work out with your mom?
