Hi Leta, Jonny, and Des:
Thanks for your well wishes ladies. You are so kind to repsond to my post. Leta I think you misunderstood the post. I didn't have a stroke, I've got a large clot in my vein that carries the back to my lungs and heart. I was lucky that I came into the ER when I did. If this clot would have continued to grow or would have pulled away from the vein I would have died, the doctor said.
I'll be here several days I guess. My platelet count was 350,000 last week I'm now down to 89,000. I need to have a different type of thinner and it needs to be given either in the ICU or the step down unit. So they will be coming soon to move me to the other floor. Also, they said that I'll have to take coumdin for 6 months after I'm released from the hospital. They are treating the pluerisy with solumedrol IV and IV demerol pain meds.
I'll try to get ahold of Lynnwood or Auntkay and they will be able to call me here at the hospital if I'm in the step down unit. If I'm in the ICU then I'll not be able to take calls while I'm in there. Nikita said it 3 days ago, "mommy you're gonna go into the hospital again" and she was right. Anyway, I just wanted to pass on an up date. Like I said I'll probably be here throughout the weekend into Monday or Tuesday.
May you all feel better and have a enjoyable weekend. I love you all and I'm so thankful that you are here for me.
