Hadassah Ein Kerem

Since 8 PM last night

Trouble breathing, irregular heartbeat and fever

Tests so far: Blood (gallons), ECG, Chest CT, Endless poking and prodding by doctors, nurses and janitorial staff

Next up: Echo cardiogram

Best guesses: Pluracy (sp), non-specific viral infection, scurvy (ok, I made that last one up)

Everyone happy?

Yikes! Refuah shlema and meanwhile, eat! You've got to keep up your strength. Is it possible you picked up something exotic in India? Or on the plane? (not trying to frighten you or anything...)

Only if it's scurvy. Call me a romantic.

Pluracy - Are you seeing double ?

Scurvy? If you retain a sense of humor things can't be too bad. Refuah Shleimah.

I've had pleurisy, and they were able to treat it with just antibiotics. (And more importantly, it's not ticker-related!)

So let's go with that, maybe, instead of a nasty old virus. If you get to pick.

Wish I saw this soon. I was at Hadassah earlier today for a doc appointment. I would have come by to visit. Get well. At least you can be brought some food from the new food court there, right?

What's pleuricy? Hope it's nothing to serious, get well soon.

I've been at Hadassah--if you're well enough to get out, it's always nice to see men in their hospital pajamas walking around (often smoking a cigarette). Just make sure your backside is covered...
