After waking up yesterday morning to severe clamminess, cold sweats, racing heart, I dediced to go to the ER. In the shower, I actually fainted, falling out of the shower and hit my tailbone pretty good. What a nightmare! At that point, I decided to call the ambulance and just get to the ER.
I had lost a LOT of blood from my lower GI tract, which caused my hemoglobin to go down to a frightening 7.3.
I took had an endoscopy today and am waiting on some biopsies. If all goes well, I will be out of the hospital tomorrow!!! Fingers crossed.
I have stuff to do, darn it. Talk about scary, though.... I was totally fine one moment, then boom.... unable to stand without fainting. Once I was in the ER, they tried to get me to stand up and monitor my blood pressure whilst standing.... After thirty seconds, I was soooo woozy that I sat down and fainted again....
A blood transfusion helped me feel better, but I lost more blood and my hemoglobin went right back to 7.3.
I am hoping that I don't lose more blood tonight and I can go home tomorrow with plans for an outpatient colonoscopy in the near future. Fingers crossed!
