.....and Skippy is Off......

...to the hospital. Seems my blood counts are low and it is time for an oil change - lol - well actually a blood transfusion - let's see if this time I can beat my old record of 5 1/2 pints. I felt like a billion dollars for a month when they did that - it was awesome. So I will popping into read, but not be posting/commenting.

[Funny side story: My father asked me on the advent of my first blood transfusion in 1997 if they drained blood and then refilled it with new blood. My father was highly educated, but um...obviously was not in the medical field. I just smiled and said no - they just put it in on top of the bad stuff. hee]

See y'all in a few.

Few quick shout outs:

That doesn't sound like a ton of fun, but if it makes you feel better then I hope it all goes well and you get lots of healthy, young blood.

Myrtle Beach is still two months away, but we'll enjoy our travels in the meantime. Gots to see friends and family before lazing on the beach, drink in hand. Mmmmmm.....
