I've been trying to write this post for 3 weeks now, but I keep falling apart . Three weeks ago my husband Ron went for his overdue check-up he has high bp. Since the end of May he just hasn't been himself. I finally made a Dr. appt. for him. (which wasn't easy). He just never will admit when he doesn't feel good. They did his routine bw and the next day they called and said his numbers were up and they wanted more bw to check him for diabetes. This was on a friday so he had to wait until Monday to get his bw done the 2nd time. The next day they called back and said his hematocrit & hemoglobin numbers had gone up 5 points in less than a week and they want him to see a hemotologist, they also wanted more bw which he had done yesterday. They suspect a blood disorder. He has an appt. with hemo Aug. 29. That was the first appt we could get. All we know is his hemoglobin is 18.5 & his hematocrit is 51. In 1985 he was working in construction and fell off a roof onto cement. They had to remove his spleen. But he recovered, and has been fine except for his blood pressure. I'm not used to seeing him laying around and sleeping so much. Normally he can't sit still and is always very active doing something...I'm trying so hard to keep myself together, and he knows this and he's worried about me, plus whatever could be wrong with him. I staying away from the internet, I know I'll read something really scary.
I just don't know what to do. I can't function, he's the only reason I put up with all the crap from my other health problems. The waiting is the worst. I really feel bad for you Lucky. I truly know what you're going through. It's even worse when it's someone you love. Love to All Billie
