    today has been a poopy day.

    I'm sick. and I stayed in bed all day b/c I felt like crap. I had mom go buy me some vitamin c pills and some chloraseptic throat spray and OJ.
    Right now I feel decent but my head is groggy and my throat kills.

    then I get an email from my uncle telling me that my aunt toots (her real name is questa ) the aunt that I am the closest too. is in the hospital with some stomach problems. i dont know how to explain it so i'll just post some of what the email said.

    "On the Friday the 24th, the day she was
    to get out of hospital, Questa passed out and when they tok her blood
    pressure it had bottomed out to below 80 over about 40. On Saturday
    she had to have 2 units of platelets and 3 units of whole blood
    transfused. Sunday the 26th her doctors said they wanted to keep her
    another day but on Monday her doctors decide to keep her yet another
    day and to try an iron supplement IV but no success. Between all the
    blood draws and IVs she had all ready had, the nurses had blown all
    of her veins in both arms, thus unable to start the iron IV. today
    they had a pic line put in to get the iron IV going and are going to
    do another endoscope in the morning. She is still bleeding
    internally and they have been unable to locate the source. The blood
    is showing up in her bowell movements and not into her abdomen as it
    is still soft and pliable. It is digested blood so they know it is
    from the upper digestive tract and not lower.I will be honest with everyone when I say I was extremely
    worried that she would not pull through. This was suppose to be a
    dangerous but fairly simple and straightforth surgery. Her surgeon
    said he has never had a patient do what Questa has done. He was
    worried himself and brought in a gastro-intestinal specialist to help
    solve the problems Q is having."

    sorry about the length of this, its just, i dunno. I just told someone last night that i dont cry at funerals and if she does die...i think i would cry. shes been like a second mom to me ya know?
    anyway, enough of this long post....

    awww... Syra, that's a shame about your aunt. I hope she and you both feel better.

    soulrebel51 i's a folkie.

    Oh I'm sorry.... I dunno what to say... I hope you both feel better...

    But if it makes you feel any better, my grandma was put in the hospital because she was pooing blood and it was found that she was bleeding internally and they didn't know where it was coming from, a couple years ago, but she made it through. I'm sure your aunt will too. :)

    I just found out today that my oldest aunt (she's around 60) is in the hospital... has been for four months. :( Today has been not a very good day... and my allergies are acting up. There's a lot of missing pieces.

    aww, bless you sweetie.

    I hope you get to feeling better, and I really hope you aunt gets better soon. It sucks not knowing if your loved ones are okay, and I can imagine its even worse when you don't know whats wrong with them.

    And I feel bad for your aunt. Especially with the nurses blowing her veins, that shit hurts bad. I hope they find the cause of her bleeding soon and treat it so she can get out of there soon.

    its even worse that she lives so far away (arizona). and i mean yah why the hell did the nurses blow her veins? she is ony in her 40's. she doesnt need to be going thru all this.
    but whatever i mean there isnt anything i can do from here. I just wish I would have known about all this sooner than today. I dunno, I'll call her later today and talk to her. maybe that will ease my mind a bit. thanks stephanie. i love you :)

    Well... can never get ahold of family. Her cholesterol has skyrocketed... she's unconcious as far as I know, and I just found out about 30 minutes ago that I lost a cousin in the earthquake...
