..not a Creature was stirring, not even a……

Wayne!   He has taken this ‘not stirring” a bit far,  And yes, “he” does know when you are sleeping, but let’s face it, 3 days of laying around is a bit much!  I mean he doesn’t know when you are awake.  No one does.  Enough is enough!! “I sprang him from bed to see what was the matter. To the emergency room, to hospital we flew.  More rapid than eagles, the doctors they came.  Fluids, blood products, CT scan and more.  The medical team wondered what was to blame.  Anemic, anemic they shouted and swore.”                                                                          Anemic, how can this be, why on Tuesday he had the best labs yet.  The kidneys were working, the blood constantly improving looked good, his electrolytes were in the normal range.  So how,  after a few days could he be so anemic that in the first 24 hours of hospitalization he has been given 6 units of red blood cells?  Good question, and the doctors are running every kind of test to figure out why. The good news is, that he does not appear to be bleeding internally. So just where is all that blood going?  Apparently, like the man in the story, “down the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound”.   Wayne’s red blood cells are here one minute and then soon not to be found (this is called hemolysis).  Why, how come, what’s the cause?  The medical team is trying to figure this out.  In the meantime –  I’m waiting for big man in red, he knows everything!!!!!!                                  But I heard Wayne exclaim, in spite of his plight,  “Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”
