    As most of you know, I drive people.
    Friday I went to Clarksburg WV and became very sick while visiting an old war buddy that lives in west milford.
    After an hour their I could not stand up and didn't know where I was at. so they took me to the hospital and they took me in immediately and gave me every test imaginable test possible
    my pulse was 78/51 very low. my blood oxygen was only 76
    which accounted for the dis-orientation, also my temp was
    103. So I was admitted and they worked on for 5 hours
    and got me back to normal other than my sugar had dropped
    down to around 60.
    Then they finally took me to my room. I had to leave the next
    day even though they wanted to keep me 2 more days.
    As they had determined that I had a virus but didn't know
    what it was, they did rule out flue, cold, and
    pneumonia and the common stuff. going back to the hospital
    here in the backwards Indiana.

    that's has got to be scary. Do you have diabetes (I guess they checked - duh...)? Sudden insulin drop can do that.
    Keep us posted, and I hope things are diagnosed and treated properly. ;)

    My sugar checked out fine, as did the blood pressure,
    the only real things was the red face, disorientation, unbalanced.
    and temp. The only thing that scared the Doc was wwhy my oxygen level went so low.
    But I'm home now and went in for a complete blood work.
    My Doctor here hasnt a clue what happened, But agrees
    that I have a virus of some kind.
