I spent another 4 hours of patiently being a patient today. I called Dr. Vanerwoude's office at 8:30 this morning because my hand and arm are just not right. At 2:00 I finally got a call to head to the hospital for yet another ultra sound. I had a different technician today than I had last Thursday and low and behold, she found a blood clot. Following the ultra sound I headed back to Cancer and Hematology to talk to the nurse. After a poke in the finger to find out how thin my blood was and then an arm draw, I was finally given instructions to QUIT coumadin (apparently it isn't working for me) and go back on Lovenox (shots in the belly). Since I have to be on the lovenox indefinitely, I have to learn how to give them to myself. Yuk. That's on my list of things to do tomorrow.
I am also planning on visiting my students tomorrow. I am anxious to see them and the staff at Hamilton Elementary!
