    worried about my mom

    High everyone, I'm new here. It's a long story but my mom has Rheumatoid Arthritis. She is 72 and the only family I have in world. She has had RA for over 30 years. She tried all the drugs in the past and they made her sick. Now she just takes 2.50 of prednisone. The thing is she is also anemic and has been for almost as long as she had RA. In September her Hemoglobin was 9.9 but now it is 9.0. I called the doctors office and the lady that picks up the phone wanted us to wait to hear the other numbers but I asked to hear them now and she said my moms serum iron was 19 and iron saturation was 7. Does any know how bad this is? How low does someone Hemoglobin have to go before they need blood.
    I would appreciate any help someone could give me about this. Thanks
