"The Mister" here, chiming in for Amanda's beloved Interwebby friends...
Amanda was checked in to the hospital this evening. She'll likely be there for about 3 days, and wants to thank all of you for your love and support. I think she's thinking of you (and Alastair) more than of herself.
We've come somewhat closer to a diagnosis: her hemoglobin count was 4.2 , which is dangerously low (a normal adult's is closer to 12). She's undergoing a battery of tests tonight. Now the chicken / egg question: is she simply anemic, or did something cause the anemia?
Her grandmother always said, "We have the bad blood." Guess she was right.
Update: Amanda will now be in the hospital for at least 3 days, probably longer. I'm not going to post any more to her blog: this is her space, not mine. I'll try to be a good boy and post more details on my own blog.
