Don't Feel Like Posting
I have DVT, or Deep Vein Thrombosis--which turned into a pulmonary embolism.
The doctor deemed me 'stable' (little do they know) enough to discharge me last night. Could have posted, but didn't even think of it.
Truth is, didn't do anything today, just stayed in bed long enough until I had to give myself the Enoxaparin injection. I will have to do this twice daily, every 12 hours, as close to the exact time as possible. In addition I am taking Coumadin once a day. Until the Coumadin becomes therapeutic I need those supplementary injections. I gave myself the first one Saturday night at the hospital, under supervision, to learn how to do it.
I am limited in what I can eat, having to regulate my intake of vitamin K rich foods--everything that I like that is 'good' for me--not any more.
It's after 6; have to take the next Coumadin. At 7:20 or so, the next injection. Have a good night.
