Not to much to tell yet. They took a vial of blood and it will be sent out and should get the results today. I had to make some slides and won’t go into detail but took them back and he thinks I may have a problem in the intestinal area with bleeding off and on. He said my reading was 7 on the blood but it should be 13 and that was why I was very anemic. He wants me to get in to the Dr. that did my colonoscopy. He, Dr. Griffin won’t be available until Febr. and the nurse said she was going to have Dr. Gobbo call and see if he can pull a little more weight. My family Dr. said he is sure the episode I had, plus the partial loss of vision I had the 2 times I have had it, and the one like Joe shook the heck out of me makes 4 warnings of a major stroke if we don’t get on top of it. The A-fib is making it very difficult to get the blood down thin enough to help prevent a stroke. Good news!! Joe is taking me to the shop to get my hair washed and cut. I was going to try leaving it a little longer since it has grown so much but with all that is going on I may just get it short again. I truly appreciate having my fellow bloggers to talk to. Joe is just so weird, lately. I just don’t say much to him. He said I don’t want to hear it because I don’t understand it. If that were him telling me about a medical problem I would listen and then ask questions. Oh well, I do know I scared him enough that he would call 911 if it became necessary. He won’t tell me if he is not feeling well. Men can be such a pain in the rear, sometimes. Oops, that excludes Jack of course. Shirl Spunky is still hanging in there. I think he needs to stay home and not go up and down the ramp, which is my slanted pillow to get in the car. He is limping a little more but I think he is using his back leg muscles more with the activity. He goes tomorrow for his rabies and Dr. Heebner will look at it. I think a rest would do it good.
