LaMarcus Aldridge: I Was Hospitalized With "Deadly Blood Virus"


Portland Trail Blazers All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge writes on that he was hospitalized this week with a potentially deadly blood virus. ---------------------------- On Saturday I came down with a blood virus. I quickly became sick and had to be rushed to the hospital. I thought it was a case of bad food or a bad cold, but I was wrong. It turned out to be a very serious virus that if not treated quickly could actually be deadly! One thing I know for sure is that I’ve never felt worse in my life and there were times I wasn’t really sure where I was going. Thankfully I had a lot of family support and great medical care that helped me fight through it and now I’ve turned the corner and I’m feeling much better. ---------------------------- -- Ben Golliver | | Twitter
