Brother is back home

Monday, February 04, 2013

Today my oldest brother got back home after being in the hospital with blood clots to the lungs. He's seems to be doing fine. Just a little tired. Won't be doing cardiac rehab since its not his heart. Plus insurance won't cover it but will on physical therapy. He wants the supervised therapy instead of going to a gym just in case something happens to him to where he needs to go to a hospital. He will be getting that set up tomorrow along with getting another blood test. His INR level was 1.93 when his doctor wanted it to be at a 2. But it was close enough. Not sure how long he's going to be off of work though. Never asked. But at least he didn't have to travel as far as dad did when dad had his heart surgeries. It's 9 miles from the hospital to home instead of 45 to 50 miles like my dad did.

Got another prayer shawl done. I'm doing another one now in a soft sage. I finished one in a pale green. I am giving that to a gal we go to church with. The one that I'm making now is for my stepcousin and his wife. I'm going to do another pale green one for my dad's oldest brother. The one I'm making now is the for the stepson to my dad's oldest brother.

    Glad that he is better and will be starting PT. That will help open up his lungs and get him to breath better
