Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I've been away--sorry to miss the poetic theoretic dialectic. . . my mudkitten Moonglow is in the hospital. They admitted her yesterday with severe anemia. They gave her a couple of units of blood, but in the way of hospitals, have taken most of it back piecemeal as they prepare to do tests. (One wonders how the tests look when they've so recently added new to her system?). Anyway, I'm NOT going to start a thread about this, I'm not calling any more attention to it than here, but I just wanted the MOAB family to know that while we've had a scare, we're working on this one. I slept at the hospital last night and her dad drove up to spell me for a while. She's in a hospital about 45 miles north of Fort Worth in Denton, where she attends the university (UNT). I'll head up again tonight, our son is going to stay at his dad's house because he can catch the school bus from there. We'll trade off between the places like this as long as we need to. We're not sure how long they'll keep her (the tests may take a couple of days and they said they may discharge her before they're all back). I have some research printouts to learn more about the types of anemia, and I'll hand this off to her dad this evening, so we'll both be in a better position to ask informed questions when needed.
