Been away for a while

Postby Archie » Sat Oct 22, 2016 11:48 am

Over a week ago my mother found me in bed apparently in a coma so called for an ambulance.
It turns out I was dangerously anaemic, they pumped 2 pints of blood into me I was kept in hospital with all sorts of things stuck in me drips etc.
I got out yesterday - so make sure you get your five a day :)

2 pints of blood? Christopher Lee never put that much away!!
Your mum must’ve freaked out. Most important thing is that you’re OK, and had someone you could trust to look after Snowy. I haven’t forgotten your words of support when the fags twice nearly took me, waking up to tubes everywhere aint funny. Wishing you a speedy recovery Archie :).

Yes eat up your fruit and veg!

Keep well Archie. 2 pints nearly 2 arm's worth as Hancock would say.

I had a relapse a couple of days but the doc treated me at home.
Hope this isn't going being to be a regular thing.

I was released from hosie yesterdays after 6 days following Another blackout.
One minute I was watching the telly - then I woke up 2 days later in a hospital bed naked ooh missus :oops: with tubes stuck in my arms and a bag for unmentionables.
The doc reckons it's a blood thing so this time I got a complete transfusion, I'm also on 9 different pills a day.

A complete blood transfusion? The full Keith Richards treatment, that is serious. Surely whatever you were watching on telly at the time wasn’t all that bad. Please do Get Well Soon Archie and good vibes to you in Scotland!! :).

Glad all's well Archie with the health situation. I've never had a blood transfusion myself. In fact. I've got too much blood. I'm a Vampire's wet dream. :shock:
