A Deadly Condition!!!
I am sending this as an unconventional blog to warn others of a deadly condition:
Last week I awoke with unbearable pain. It tuned out to be the deadly condition of poisoned blood at the point of an ancient bone injury. They have to determine whether the infection is in the blood or bone injury (where these things emerge — mine blood at the site an ancient high school wrist injury. I have been doped up since — but have some real gains from a meeting with Martin Frankel, our home doctor, with whom we made some major changes in meds that may be a great gain — versus nutty Saint Lukes recommendations.
Such pain should be taken seriously, as it can kill healthy people in a day or two. Thank G-d we went in at 1 a.m.
Will try to catch up with messages ASAP. Best, Ed
