Fainted on plane
It was my own fault. I had eaten plenty and drank some liquids (probably not enough, though). I was fine for the first couple of hours, but after a while, I started to feel sick. At first, I thought I was nausious, but soon realized that I was going to pass out. I put my head between my legs, but soon found that wasn't going to work. I forgot about the attendant button to call an attendant to me. Duh. :o I got up to go to them and was able to make it before lights out for me. My poor heart was racing so fast. I feel so dumb. I didn't even think to have my cbc done before flying out for my niece's graduation, but my last counts weren't bad with my hemo being 10.9. I guess I've dropped quite a bit since then. :( I have my next appt. on Tuesday and will probably get a good "talking to" by my hemotologist. Luckily, I only passed out on my flight out. I was definitely scared to get back on the plane home, but prepared myself for it by getting an aisle seat in case I needed the attendant to help me. I also drank a LOT of water. I got a little dizzy and lightheaded, but no passing out. Yay!! So, note to the wise...get your dr. approval and cbc done before flying!! Don't be a dope like me! :o It was definitely a smack in the face that I'm sick again. :(

Actually, my counts weren't as bad as expected. Yay! We're not sure what caused me to faint. I'm just thankful I'm still high enough to avoid transfusions. :)
