I thank you all for your replies. blondie, www.noblood.org is an outstanding source of information and I would suggest it to anyone - JWs particularly.
My wife's blood count is now at a near normal 9.7
I was amazed to find that on an issue that WTS seems to place so much emphasis on, they do not have a viable support system directed and coordinated at national/international level. The idea that local leaders are capable of identifying health care professionals (JWs or otherwise) who practice the organizations noblood protocols is ludicrous. I am sure that there are health care professionals who are WTS members - at the very least the organization should have a directory for its members.
