At least I got my shopping done. Had a blood test today and just got a call from the doctor's office - he wants me to go to the ER because my hemoglobin is really low. I've been here many times before; told him I'd go in the morning. They'll have to do a confirmation test, type and cross, get the blood and get it going - by that time it'll be 2 in the morning and I may or may not be in a room. Don't blow a gasket, PF, but it can wait Going to bed now.

If you've been there before and you think it can wait, I think you are right. If this was a new experience I would be losing it all over! Take care, get some good fluids in so they can find a vein on one stick.

gee, gg, i'm sure sorry that you hafta be in the hospital right now. i know you'd rather be elsewhere...maybe you could think of this as an overnight at a B&B, instead--with nice, smiling people bringing your meals to you bedside in covered dishes, pitchers of ice water, and seeing to your every need and creature comfort. a brief respite from your responsibilities and xmas preparations--not so bad, really. just you and your pc, maybe dropping in at dc w/your dc friends, cable tv if you want it, any books or magazines to read....have a nice, restful stay at your b&b, gg, and return home refreshed and ready to resume work again on your holiday plans....:)

I love that perspective, V - thanks

And thanks, PF. I'm feeling much better now.

Well, yeah! You got some blood on now! I wish all fatigue problems could be fixed that easy! I'm so glad you are feeling better, it does kinda creep up on you, it's not like there's bells and whistles going off when your Hct goes low.

Do any of you have personal experience dealing with a bi-polar person? I need to talk to someone who is personally involved. My husband is bi-polar and I need some help.

I'm making a sponge cake for the trifle. Ack! I got six eggs separated properly. The seventh one, somehow there was some yoke in the white and I didn't notice until I dumped it in with the other egg whites. I tried to fish out the yoke, but it just spread around. I guess we're having an omelette for supper.

I feel for you, this is not an easy thing to deal with. Feel free to PM me and I can help a little.
