There isn't a community for this, so I thought I would ask here. My mom has AVM, Arterio Veinous Malformation, a birth defect where you have tangles of veins, capillaries and arteries. Most people don't know they have it, until they get older, and their vessels naturally become weaker. The vessels burst or leak and you lose blood faster than you can replace it, even with iron. Every three months or so, she gets a transfusion, when her hematocrit gets around 20. If you are a person who needs a transfusion, do you have your family donate the blood? If you have this disorder, or any advice it would be appreciated.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
