Okay, so I've called an ambulance

I'm just geting weaker and can't fight it any more.

Many thanks to to the commentatators who have pretty much confirmed what I think is wrong with - alhtough only time will tell for sure.

I don't have a smartphone or tablet, but have packed my laptop and will hopefully be able to keep in touch with that.

Please wish me luck, my blood is very thin and I do't heal well - I'm absolutelty terrified.

Right now it's the best place for you. Hopefully you'll be fixed up well enough to enjoy Christmas. If I lived closer I'd come along to hold your hand. Do you have someone with you?

Kev,

Glad to see that you reached out for help. Good luck and best wishes.

A very brave thing you did in calling for assistance, Kev! I'm Hoping that getting this behind you alleviates some of your anxiety also which I know can be more crippling than a physical illness.

There are many many souls out here whose thoughts, prayers, good energy and healing wishes are coming your way, including me. You're not alone in spirit.

Perhaps while you're laid up you might reach out to some of your old friends and let them know what you're up against. You may be surprised that you find them grateful you've offered them the gift of your friendship again.

Get well soon Kev!

Kev, thanks for going to the hospital! From your last few posts you seem to be like me in that you do not like to impose on others, you aren't imposing on others! It is their job to take care of you and your taxes have paid for this care.

Take your share!

I hope you find that this is the best decision you made iny ears and that your Holidays bring the love you deserve!

Well done for taking the first and hardest step. Waiting for the ambulance will have been the worst part but it will all get easier from now on. Every minute that goes by is a minute nearer your eventual return to home and hearth and health. In a couple of weeks you'll look back and wonder what you were ever worried about. I know many people on here will be thinking of you over the Christmas and they too will be a lot less worried now that you're getting the medical attention you clearly needed. So thanks for that..... and Happy Christmas.

I hope you heal fast, and well.

Warren Zevon said he was afraid of doctors and never went to see them. He admitted that didn't work so well for him.

I hope they've figured out what's going on, and it's something with a good treatment.

Get well soon, wish you all the best. You're blog has brought me many giggles. Looking forward to more. Hang in there . From soggy Oregon.

Yanz said...

I am saddened at your condition but glad you are seeking the medical help you need.

As much as I miss your posts, I have grown fond of the person behind it throughout the years and my concern for you has only gotten stronger as the recent months passed.

You had made me chuckle many times with your posts and "borrowed" many a pic to share with others. You have brightened many people's days mine and my friends included.

I sincerely wish there was something definite I could do or give to repay you for this.

Please take care and know you have an ardent follower all the way Sacramento, capital of the Golden State of California.

Oh thank goodness. Thank you for getting help. I didn't reply to the last post because I didn't think a comment from a stranger would convince you to seek medical attention, but it seems you are regardless. Thank you. I was concerned about you. Please don't exert yourself. Please rest, and let the doctors and specialists do their thing.

All the best to you, please listen to your doctors, but don't be afraid to get a second opinion or ask questions. You're your own best advocate. Please take care and I hope that you can get, and feel, better soon.

Thank you for asking for help looking after yourself!

Your contributions to my life, my daily life, over the last few years are something I am truly grateful for. Thank you for the joys.

Do consider a kickstarter if you need help getting back on your feet. I'm not one for those but you're a treasure.

Anonymous said...

Mate - you came up with a lot of truly original content, and I miss your contribution to my day.

Stay well. Really glad you asked for some help. That's what they're there for.

shak said...

Any word about your illness yet, Kev? I've been checking every day to see if you have updated your blog, as I'm sure others have also done.

Thank you! Please take care of yourself!

Goodness... you're describing my predicament... being a recluse myself, I, too, have no one special to just call for help. The Kindness of Strangers proves its worth for those such as us, especially in times such as these... I wish you all the very best Kev... anytime anyone says "Please let me know how I can help..." take them up on it right then and there, because that's the only time (usually) they'll mean it while remaining gracious. (If you're extra lucky, they might mean it one more time. But by then, they'll give you the "look" ("I didn't mean to sign up as your beetch").) If you can offer to pay a neighbor (a mature, sensible sort) to buy your groceries for you, do it. I load a pre-paid card with about $200 or so USD, and pay $100 cash on delivery. That way, no one feels "1 down." I'm no good at the pep talk... I can share a tip or two. Hang in there as best you can, I'm pulling for you... we're all pulling for you Kev.

Warm wishes from me as well. Best of luck!

xoxoxoBruce said...

You might as well get better because we obviously aren't going away, just going to keep nagging you until you're back on top.
And money is another way, be glad to help you tip those pretty young nurses on night duty for extra care. ;o)

You'd best be alive and well. At this time of the year it's too damned cold to go outside naked and twatting about with pentagrams at midnight. Don't even get me started about those damned uncooperative chickens and black candles.

Ah, Kev, all the best for you! Grace, peace, and healing be yours. Rest up, and ignore the claptrap til you're well.
