Where does the blood go?

Someone I know and love is in the hospital. He’s doing well, thank you. But I am confused. They have given him 10 pints of blood to help with a blood disease that results in the destruction of red blood cells. Ten pints is a lot. Yet, his blood pressure has remained steady. As you add fluid to a contained system, shouldn’t the pressure increase? He reports that he is not urinating particularly much. So, where is the blood going? Just curious.
