girlfriend's mom had to go to the ER yesterday. she was complaining about feeling weak. she has a history of being a hypochondriac, so i don't think anyone took her seriously. until....... the doc had to give her a pint of blood and from what i was told, had she waited another week, she'd likely be dead. the doc was going to run tests today to see what the deal was, and why the family's normal doc didn't catch this, but again, her blood was too low, and they had to give her another pint. the ER doc was baffled as to why the original doctor never caught this problem. apparently Mandi's mom had been going to the doc and getting blood work quite often these past few months, complaining of not feeling well. he never said anything was wrong, which of course, led to a greater belief that she was a hypochondriac.
