When I was about 10 years old or so (mid/late 60’s) there was a sister in our congregation that almost died from hepatitis after receiving a blood transfusion. She was not disfellowshipped but I do not remember why. I think her husband at that time was not baptized and ordered/signed for the transfusion. I do remember my mother taking care of her when she returned from the hospital. She was very ill. I also remember the wispers from brothers and sisters about it.
