Finally Back Online

To the many friends I have made through blogging, I am back online as of today. I got my new computer and internet service today. I want to thank all of you for your prayers, “hugs” and concerns. My husband had a blood clot that developed in December 2006 and went untreated until the middle of February. As with most men, they do not tend to go to the doctor when they get ailments. He was in the hospital for three days and in bed for over a month. There are still issues with swelling and the level’s of blood thinner medication that we are dealing with now and the possibility of another clot forming.

According to the doctors he is lucky to be alive. Luck had nothing to do with it, God did. God allowed him to live and to make changes in his life so that we could be reunited. He is a changed person and we are reunited and things are working out for us.

Dear Sylvia, I too had trouble with the right level of dosage for my blood thinners after I was diagnosed with a clot in 2005, it took weeks for things to get 'normal' and then they never stayed that way for long! In the end things worked out well and now I only go for a check up every 6 months...unless I am worried and the ER are pretty good with getting a scan done as soon as you show signs of anything that could remotely be connected to a clot!! I have a cold leg now, ice cold and it goes purple quite a lot but other than that...no ill effects!

I hope your husband recovers quickly and that you continue to grow with one another.

Great to have you back {{{HUGS}}} xx
