First Coombs test was Positive for the Rh factor, but the second one was
Negative for the factor. Sounds like you are like my mother.....A+-

Mom is a 'weak A' so I figure if I tested your blood and got those results,
I would say you are a 'weak O". With that designation, you would require A
Neg., or in your case, O Neg. should you require a transfusion to overt an
antibody-antigen reaction.

Ok, I've got a question regarding this topic. Guess I probably
should've asked it of the nurses, etc., way back when, but this topic
just refreshed my memory about the subject.
Back in '69 when I had my son and received his hospital certificate
there was all the usual information on the envelope; mother's name,
etc. Next to my name and blood type was "O+ 1/2 neg." Anyone have
any suggestions as to what that might mean??
