Oh Shots, Welcome Back

Willing to accept that I was living in an alternate universe filled with doom and gloom wackiness, my doctors weren’t.  They did not believe my theory, “I’m just going through an unlucky spell”.

Tuesday I had an ultrasound performed and I have a blood clot in my left leg near my ankle.  Explains to a tee the discomfort I have been experiencing.  Well disguised because it snuck in while having joint pain from the steroid (decadron) taper.  Sneaky little blood clot.


I am back on my ol’ buddy, who I’d love to ditch, fondaparinux.  After two days it seems to be helping.  Still I’m keeping lefty elevated when I can.

Back on blood thinners is not horrible.  Not the way blood clots are!

    “Fondaparinux” sounds like an Asterix character

    Was it Lady Macbeth who said ‘Out, out, damn clot!”? So glad those doctors are ON IT! Sending love to you. May easier days lie ahead.

    It just sucks that one drug leads to another issue.    Don’t listen to the Charlie Sheen interview on Doc Spoc(sp).  Or do……..  it will make you chuckle.  His idea on his meds are more than insane.      l love and miss you two!  I am sending a death ray to your blood clot !! Matisse
