Less than 4 weeks later I was rushed to the emergency room hemorrhaging. My blood pressure was near nothing & I passed out in triage, which won me a very fast ride on a stretcher directly into the ER. There were suddenly 6 or 8 doctors & nurses working on me, putting in 4 IV's & trying to do scans to figure out why I was bleeding. There was too much blood too fast & they decided "emergency surgery" was the only option. There was definitely a sense of urgency this time. They put in so many IV's to get as much fluid in me as fast as they could & then they ran, literally ran me through the halls to the OR. It was crazy & the mood was not positive.
It's been a year now since that incident & obviously everything worked out ok. I've kept track of the time because I have a rare blood type & would like to start donating blood again :o)
Here are some pictures of the boys then...

And the boys now...
