Good morning all. Four more days in Ireland then back home to the USA. I am going to try to have my HGB checked before our nearly 8 hour flight. Always concerned about clots when flying. Question.....occasionally I feel like I am going to pass out. Lasts only a few seconds but very scary. Had three episodes yesterday. Left me scared and depressed. I was diagnosed with PV one and a half years ago. Am only on low dose aspirin. Have had three phlebotomies so far. Must keep HGB below 14. Has anyone else experienced this horrible feeling? I pray not but please share if you have. As I have said in the past I totally dislike my hematologist. Perhaps because I am an RN I tend to be more critical. Then again maybe he is just awful. I will be searching for a new one who has the ability to at least make eye contact with me and answer my questions. Actually I guess I need two hematologists as we split the year between New Jersey and Florida. The search will begin. Just wanted to mention Congrats again to Jilly! Awesome girl! Way to go. Hugs to all. Harlie
