Ealer last week I felt like I was coming down with a chest cold. By Friday I was short of breath just walking a few feet.
So I went to the er. They found I was had pulmonary embolisms, blood clots in both lungs. So I am stuck in the hospital for at least five days, while the get the blood thinners therapeutic. During this tume they are running tons of tests to try and find out why I am getting these blood clots.
Sadly I still have no health insurance of any sort. Looks like I was will be working the rest of my life to pay housing and med bills.
Hang in there Ron, at least you are in good hands.
Well the docs want to send me home tonight, so they gave me a shot of lovinox to cover the heprin blood thinner for the 24 hours. The INR is 2.1 today which is the number they want for the warfarin. They still have no idea why I got the massive and many blood clots in my lungs, again. Doc says I will have to be on the blood thinners for the rest of my life.
