Smile Checking out

Too all my DC friends I just about check out permintly Tues PM
I have not been feeling good for the last three weeks, If I stood up I got dizzy if I done any thing stress wise I could not get a deep breath so I went to the VA Tues afternoon and talked to my Nurse and she hauled me off to Emergency and the fight was on. My Bone Marrow has QUIT producing blood. after 3 blood tests I was told I had about 24-36 hours to live if I had not checked in to the hospital, they gave me TWO units of whole blood and a bunch of other IV drugs and put me to bed in isolation nobody could come into my room with out a gown and a mask.. I was released this afternoon with instructions to be back on Fri morning for more tests and be back Monday for a bone morrow biopsy. So I am taking it easy. Goning to watch the rose bowl parade and the games.
Happy new year to all
Dave

Oh, Dave, what ominous news. I'm sending all the love, prayers and support I can. Please don't check out "permanently." Keep us apprised of your condition. We love you. Enjoy the parade and the games tomorrow.

Oh no, Dave! I'm horrified! How are you feeling right now, my friend? Are you still dizzy when you stand up? Do you have everything you need? Please, please, please take care because we love you and don't want to lose you. Also, please check in here whenever you can to keep us updated. Big hugs and strong prayers coming your way.

Just think you did to all of us with a thread entitled, "Checking out". You really freaked me out! I understand being scared and I am glad you are talking about it. Just have a little faith in the doctors, positive thinking and prayer.
