Dave's getting a blood transfusion...

Yes, it's me, Holly, yet again! Well, we've known that Dave has been very, very tired and has not really had much of an appetite since he got out of the hospital last Friday. Fortunately, he had a good day yesterday, which was his birthday. He got up this morning though and was just incredibly tired and had absolutely no energy at all. We got a call from Joan, Dr. D'Amato's nurse, who told us that Dave's levels were critical...yikes...his hematocrit, hemoglobin and white cells were ALL critical and some of the others (potassium, etc) were "just low"...so, back to the hospital we go. Yep, Dave got admitted to Crawford Long around 1:00 pm and was in his room at 3:00 pm today. He's supposed to receive 2 pints of blood and supposedly he feel like a new man tomorrow. Hopefully he'll get a good nights rest and I can go pick him up tomorrow after the kids get on the bus.
So, keep him in your prayers and thank goodness he has a great doc and we live close enough where we can get him treated so he'll be good as new in a day!
Take Care, Holly

Keith Richards used to get his blood changed out. Does this mean Dave is going to be able to play guitar now?

Get well soon, buddy. We're thinking about you.
