hi peeps, how is your weekend going? mine, oh well, the usual... Diane and i had nuttin to do last night. it was getting late and then it came to me! i know what we can do just to top off our otherwise quiet evening... why, let's take a trip to the E.R. for Pete's sake!!! "why the hell not", replies the wife. so off we go around 10:30. and while we're just hanging out there, maybe i should get checked out for a DVT! [blood clot in the leg]. ok, says the wife.... let's.
we were there for nearly 6 hours. we got home at 5 A.M. i had an ultrasound on my right leg which turned out to be negative for clots. then i had a CAT scan with contrast [it is very difficult to scan a cat] to rule out a pulmonary embolism [clot in the lung which could kill ya if not caught]. urine sample, blood work... and oh, just for shits and giggles, turns out my hemoglobin is 7.9. yeah, dude. aNeMiA. the DOC said its due to blood loss rather than iron deficiency. he thinks my injury was bleeding internally. i have to follow up with my DOC Monday.
firkin' hell. it's one thing after another.
sooooo, now I'm gonna try to sleep with my puffy but not stuffy legs and hand. and the gimpy arm. my son is coming over wiff his friend this afternoon to cook dinner for us... i should be up by then... have a great Sunday!
your puffy bloggy friend, C.
