well, it turns out i will live after all. I saw Dr. Sean and he drew labs and checked my blood counts and they were all normal (well one was low but it was low a few months ago, and it is not critical or anything). He thinks the vomiting blood and the blood in the stool is not related. As for the vomiting blood, the Dr. thinks I have a Mallory-Weiss tear but he did not say anything about an endoscopy or anything like that. He didn't think it was serious as long as there was not alot of blood coming out. I don't know. It seems to me 5 years ago when I lived in Salt Lake I threw up a little blood and got an endoscopy right away. But whatever.
With the whole poo thing, Dr.Sean thinks I have a bacterial infection. This seems likely to me, since Chris has been sick with the same symptoms (except no blood). So he gave me some antibiotics for that.
Sorry for all the gross details. I wasn't really "with it" when I commented on my last post. I'm feeling alot better now though.
