Anemia Hurts

Submitted by ATeachMom

A parent came to me with her first grader's current health concerns. He had been feeling tired and grumpy. The parent went on to tell me that he was anemic and that his blood needed more iron. I gave my student a hug, told him that I would watch out for him during the day and the parent left. In a few minutes I found the boy crying at his seat. I went over to ask him if he was okay. He looked up at me and asked me, "How hot is that iron going to be?"
