a. one of those, one doctor not telling the other? Happens in the states also. Surgery was scheduled for this morning and this morning I was told we need 6 pts. of blood before. Is There Anyone Left In Pony Land That Can Help?

Sure would like to get this done and be home before happy hour. thanks allot all suzann tucker Suz5527 [ - a t - ] aol.com

b. the hospital says I need 6 people to replace the needed blood for my surgery. this is a good hospital, but this surgery is very dangerous as well, and I cannot go anywhere else because of the serious condition. I'm just trying to save my life, Our friend Pako started it.

c. I have A negative, but they (the hospital) said the donations were for replacements and any would do. The address is here in La Paz, At Centro Estatal de las Transfusion Sanguinea,
Bravo 1010, Esq. Josefa Ortiz de D.

thanks so much, if you could get the word out for me.

Guess they, the hospital, are having trouble getting a doctor to do the surgery, this doctor says tomorrow morning and that I will be in intensive care afterwards, different than the first 2 doctors. I really got myself into a pickle this time. - suzann tucker
