As the guys drove to the hospital they were worried about what was going on with Criss. "Maybe that blood he puked up is probably the reason he was anmenic"JD suggested. "Yea why did Criss throw up blood" Costa asked. "Let's hope the doctors know" as they pulled into the hospital. When they got in Costa saw Jeff. "Hey Jeff"he called out. "Costa JD I guess you're here about Criss". "Yea what's wrong with him this time"JD remarked. "I guess the stress of Criss's job finally caught up with him. Criss has an ulcer and the ulcer is probably the reason he became anemic". "We use to tell Criss he was giving us ulcers not the other way around"Costa stated.
"Well with some medication and trying to bring down Criss's stress level he'll be fine". "You'd have a better chance on trying to raise the dead than bringing down Criss's stress level"JD replied as Costa muffled a laugh. "Well we also have a problem because of the ulcer Criss is anemic again so we have to give him another transfusion". "Did you find anyone here that's Criss's blood type?"Costa inquired. "Janice is checking the blood list to see if anyone is AB double negative from that blood drive Ava-". Jeff stopped mid sentence. "It's all right Jeff we all miss Ava"Costa replied. "Jeff Jeff we've got it we've got a pint of AB double negative"Janice remarked running down with a cooler. In the emergency room they hooked Criss up and after a minute Criss started to feel better. "How you feeling Criss?"JD asked as they walked in. "Better I can't believe I gave myself an ulcer"he replied. "Well now you have a reason to slow down"Costa said. "Yea"Criss replied. A few months went by and The Luxor was having their blood drive. Criss and his crew helped out any way they could. Criss even brought down Hammie which the little kids loved. At the canteen Costa was handing out the drinks. "How you doing Costa?".
He turned around and saw BJ. "I'm good that Ava's father is in a mental hospital for what he did". At the trial Ava's father went loony saying that his lawyer and the judge were out to get him, so they put him in a mental hospital for the rest of his life. "How's Criss I heard he got an ulcer". "He's watching his stress level and taking his medication. He's doing good so far" Costa replied. "Well I'm going to donate we'll talk later"he stated and walked off. Over at one of blood donation tables JD was donating while Criss just talked. "Too bad you're still a little anmenic"JD said. "Well with the medications I'm on Iím surprise that I still can donate when I'm not anmenic" Criss joked. "Well I found out something you may like to know"JD stated. "And that is?". "It's seems the rare blood type still lives on in the family. It seems my daughter has AB double negative blood"JD replied as he sat up slowly. "So little D has my blood type wow"Criss said in shock.
"Yup and if you need another transfusion because of an accident or something else they will tap your niece" as JD got up. "Well go over and get a drink at the canteen"Criss replied as Felix came over. "Christopher thanks for letting us use The Believe Theater for this. I can't believe Wanda double booked where we were going to have it"Felix remarked. "Just be thankful it's a black night for Believe"Criss replied. "Hey Criss can you help this lovely lady over to the canteen"Janice called out. "Talk to you later Felix" as Criss walked over. Criss walked the lady over to the canteen. After he did that Carrot top and Penn and Teller walked in. "Hey I see you got my message about the blood drive". "Yea I had to drag Carrot here"Penn remarked. "Hey I don't like blood all right" Carrot stated. "Well just fill this out and one of the nurses will take care of you" as the guys sat down. After the blood drive was over Criss was in his office looking over some stuff as Costa came in.
"Hey what are you looking at?". "*givelife.org it's a website for the American Red Cross. I was just reading some of the way blood and platelets are used. They even had an article in here about Ava. Saying that Ava Borgot was the most caring person in the Las Vegas Chapter of The Red Cross. She even help with an emergency blood drive for me and other people"Criss read. "Maybe when you finally get enough Iron in your blood maybe you can finally donate"Costa suggested. "Yea for Ava"Criss replied as he looked at the picture of Ava. A week later Criss finally got to a double red cell donation.
I hope you guys have learned what I was doing with this story everywhere people need blood for transplants, amenia, accidents, and people with cancer. Check out the website(*) and find a blood drive or a local Red Cross service near where you live and donate. The need is constant. The gratification is instant.
