Update & thanks
Hats off to straightdrive, bblost, kkr2kr2, mobike008, hyd-traveller (twice over!), zen91, huntrz, maverick79, hillram, MileCruncher, Ranjit (non-tbhp), Karthik (non-tbhp) and Sai Kiran (non-tbhp) for having responded spontaneously and instantly. Special credit goes to Pulsar56 for always being ready to act as a 'clearing house' and identify donors of the appropriate group from his various contacts, this is the second time I have seen him do this - way to go Pulsar. Suren181's management skills were on display as he ensured that there was at least one donor available each day of the week. Fortunately, we did not need to call upon them.
UPDATE: Absynthguzzler's body responded on Monday morning (after transfusion of 6 units of platelets over 3 days) and his platelet count went up to 44000. On seeing this all further transfusions and IV were stopped. By Tuesday morning the platelet count went up to 85000 whereupon, the Doctors decided to discharge him. Absynthguzzler went home yesterday. Today he reports that his platelet count has touched 200000. The virus seems to be on the retreat and Absynth is well on the way to recovery.
Thanks again all of you.

Wishing him a fast and speedy recovery.
Stay away from mosquitoes guys. Dengue is back and its not being noticed in the noise created by H1N1.
Just to cheer him up.
Do you know about the pig who had an affair with the hen.
The hen got swine flu and the pig got bird flu.
