I was so upset when I found out that I was being readmitted due to the blood clot. I knew that there was a possibility of blood clots but thought that since I had been getting the shots and that I would be all right in that regard. Little did I know. I have seen my regular doctor and a blood specialist since being here this time. I talked with the blood specialist about the tightness and discomfort I was feeling in my leg while in the Acute Rehabilitation unit before going home. He thinks that even though I was getting the shots to prevent the blood clots that it may have already been forming in my leg before I even went home. Then add the therapy packets that mostly worked my legs that kept irritation the leg so that is why I ended up back in the hospital. I guess this is not uncommon to happen when someone has been bedridden like I was while I was in the CU unit and Step down after getting moved out of the ICU. I am hoping and praying that when I do get out this time that I stay home and not end back up in the hospital again.

One additional advantage of this stay is that I have found out that I may be able to get off one of the blood pressure meds that they put me on with the last visit. Most of the time my top number with my blood pressure has been less that 130 so we have been holding that one most of the time. I think I have taken it once or twice since being here this time. Because of that I guess we well be picking up a blood pressure cuff on the way home so I can be checking my blood pressure before taking that blood pressure before taking that one pill as I can't see taking it if I really don't need it.

Thank you again

Thank you for the welcome home. I haven't been doing too much. I have been working my 4 therapy packets(one of which I won't do without my husband or daughter with me just for safety sake), napping, a little walking in this really small house carrying oxygen cords along.

The first night home I had a cat sleeping behind my knees, one cat sleeping by my thighs and one sleeping at my feet pretty much the whole night. The next morning I got my scale out and weighed myself to see where I was at compared to what I weighed the last time I weighed myself at home. During this whole ordeal I lost 28 pounds. It is a hard way to lose the weight but I am going to do my best to make sure I don't put it back on.

Thanks again
