A very scary update

Sunday, May 30, 2010

If you are on my facebook you may already have an idea of how ad things got for me. Last Sunday I went to the ER. I was having horrible back pain and trouble breathing. I was sent home with a "viral infection'. The next morning things were much worse so I went to the ER on post. I did not have a viral infection but did have a bilateral pulmonary embolism. There were several clots in both lungs and I was rushed to ICU. I was kept in the hospital until Thursday night. Now, I am at home. I have a nurse who comes out to the house daily and draws my blood. I am on two different blood thinners. One of them is a shot I give myself twice a day in my stomach. The other is a pill. I am still having trouble breathing but it is getting better. Obviously, I cannot be online much right now but I will try to check in daily. I know I am lucky to be alive. The cardiologist told us 40% of people never make it to the hospital after having one.
