Subject: Blood Donation Appeal - Blood B+ required urgently for Yeoh Hock Seng

Dear Swee Aun and friends,

I need your assistance in sourcing blood donors for my open heart surgery on 22 November (Tuesday) at 9 am.

I am required to perform a bypass surgery for 3 blood vessels on the 22nd of November 2005 in Subang Jaya Medical Center (SJMC). A check on my gastric problem lead to the discovery of the heart problem.

On my angiography diagnostic test in SJMC, i found that my heart has 2 thinner blood vessels - one getting clogged at the ending section and the other is not so 'healthy' and a normal one which is maybe 65% clogged. Unfortunately or luckily depending on how one views at it, I do not have any symptom of a potiential heart failure. However, my heart retraction fraction is around 40% instead of the regular 65% rate and as such it is working very hard, like exercising every minute of the day... the heart beat rate is about twice the normal heart beat. The heart is also enlarged already.

BP 's reading had been normal 80/120 for past many years but it changed gradually beginning of this year to 140/90. My total level of cholesterol reading stood at 4.5 while the HDL is 3.3 (doctor's advice is to get it to 2.6) and being a diabetic for a good 16 years my sugar reading averages below 7 point.

The SJMC doctors advised me for open heart surgery, being the best option. The surgeon (Dr Dato Rozali) is very cautious about the blood that will be used for this critical surgery to minimize any post-surgery complication. For this purpose, a quantity of 6 to 8 packs of fresh B+ blood are required for the open heart surgery on 22 November 2005 (Tuesday).

Details of the blood screening and donation are as below:

1) [B]B+ is blood type required. B- also accepted.

2) Donors need to go to SJMC, Blood Bank , 5th Floor, North Tower (the new wing) for an initial screening and then be back on the day of the operation, (Tuesday) 22 November 2005 morning between 8.30 a.m. to 9.30 a.m. , for the actual blood donation . Donors can go there any day from 10 November onwards for initial screening

3) The LAST day for the initial screening is 21 November (Monday) 2005 but the time mustl require be before 3 pm (SJMC wil time to perform necessary tests on the blood sample. SJMC will inform the respective donors who is NOT SUITABLE to do a blood donation). If prospective donors are not sure of their blood type but wish to help, SJMC will do a check immediately during the initial screening. No prior preparation is required for donors for screening. For those who have perform blood screening and DO NOT receive calls from SJMC, please proceed for the blood donation on 22 November (Tuesday)2005 before 9.30 am

4) SJMC Opening Hours (for Blood Screening) : 8.30am-5.00pm Mon-Fri, 8.30-12.30 Sat. Tel: 56306560/56341212.

5) Please mention to SJMC Blood Bank that it is for the operation for Mr Yeoh Hock Seng (on 22 November 2005).

6) Minimum age for donors is 18 years. Asthmatic, Hypertension, Diabetic patients are NOT advisable to donate.

7) Any questions, please contact me ( YEOH HOCK SENG 012-3166195 or 03-56358560).

Thank you for your assistance and may Buddha bless you all.

Swee Aun - appreciate if you can let me have the name and contact numbers of the donors.

Err...dear Tan_R:)...Orchi has made an earlier pledge to Marianne...that Orchi would be at SJMC tomorrow morning...for the blood bank there to take Orchi's blood samples...
