I got a call yesterday about 8:45 from Gobbos office yesterday about 8:45 and she wanted me to get up there as soon as possible because I was going to have to have a blood transfusion and it took a while. The rest of the tests came out good but I was anemic and needed a transfusion right away. Paula you know bohemians and so you can imagine the reaction I got out of Joe who had not had his first cup of coffee, finished. I was facing a bear!!! I thought I would just get myself ready to go which actually I had my shower and was dressed in a sweat outfit but my hair was still wet. So I I tried to glue it down, all the while listening to Joe rant. but he was moving at least, so Spunky took his first ride before he or Joe had breakfast. They gave me 2 units of blood and it took 4 and a half hours. plus the time it took to get it prepared. So I called Joe before they got me hooked up and I TOLD HIM IT WOULD BE 4 TO 5 HOURS before I would be coming home, or calling him so go ahead and take Spunky for his rabies and get some cosequine for his joints. He was limping a little more than usual but he was up and down ramp to the back seat several times and I figured he would favor that leg a little more cause he has not had that type of activity on a daily bases. He has not hurt anything but he is like we humans, we exercise more than usual it makes me feel aches I never knew I had. He thinks he is human so I am glad he can’t read. At any rate my blood count was down. I am not short winded at all but they have to figure out why it dropped so much in a month or 2. I go in to Gobbo Monday and get my blood tested again and if it had dropped have to go see a gastro-specialist, to try to figure out where I am losing blood.. I don’t think it will have dropped. Joe raved and ranted all the way out there about how he might just tell those people not to expect us to drop everything and rush out there. I left the car and got in the building very quick. It is amazing how I am not short winded. Gotta go, grump is up.
