Yet another trip to the hospital
At 0230 hours this morning, Raul took me to the Emergency Department at Kaiser in Los Angeles. I needed blood! My lips were pale, I hear my own heartbeat in my left ear, I was having chest pains, nausea and vomiting. The problem is I'm still bleeding down there (sorry, TMI) and it is getting worse. It has been 9 weeks now and the doctors don't know what to do to fix it. My GYN started me on Progesterone to stop the bleeding. I've taken it for 2 weeks now with no result. And because I am losing blood, I am needing more. Hope you're following along. LOL! So I am losing blood and to top things off, my bone marrow has failed and is not making it. Wowsers! I can't do much but keep fighting. Raul needs a wife, Danica needs a mom, and my family needs a comedian. Who's gonna make them laugh when I'm no longer here?? Haha! Sometimes, we take for granted the little things in life. I bet you don't ask yourself these questions, "How much hemoglobin do I have today?" or "What's my platelet count today?" For the past 8 months, I have been relying on the blood bank to provide for my body's needs. So for those who donate blood, thank you! Thank you for saving my life. And a big THANK YOU to my Lord, Jesus Christ. He created me, He knows me, He knows what is wrong and He will save me. So folks, be grateful for what you have. For every little thing, be thankful!
