Kai had his first therapeutic phlebotomy treatment on Friday, July 6.
At that time 10cc's of his blood were removed. His hematocrit was
around 77%.

Last evening another CBC was performed and his hematocrit had dropped
to 43% which my vet tells me is excellent.

So now we will wait 2 more weeks and then run another CBC to see where
we stand.
