    My husband, Bob, was up all night with vomiting and diahrrea, both bloody. He had a bleeding ulcer 12 years ago, before we met. He had 2/3 of his stomach removed and they found the start of stomach cancer. He had radiation and he's been fine ever since.

    But he's been tired and weak for quite a while now. In fact, we were beginning to wonder if he didn't have FM too.

    He was white as a sheet after he threw up around midnight. We thought, at the time, that the red color was the Raspberry Ice Crystal Light he'd been drinking. Apparently not.

    When I saw his diahrrea this morning, I called the ambulance immediately. He's a big man, 240 lbs., and he was feeling faint. There's no way I could get him to the car.

    So now I'm going to jump in the shower and head for the hospital. Heaven knows what I'll find when I get there.

    I really don't need this, but I can't think about myself now.

    I know you won't read this till later, but try to stay calm the will find out what's wrong. My husband had 2/3 of his stomach remove also years ago. When he throws up it's very upsetting because it's different for them than it is for us.

    You are doing the right thing let the doctors figure it out and try to take care of yourself too. I know it's hard, but if you have to care for him you need to stay as healthy as possible.

    You are in my thoughts..
