Sorry this happened to you Barbara, but glad they found the clot. That was really really good. I imagine you must be sick of hospitals, doctors, nurses, and whatever it is they give you for nourishment in there, let alone all the rest of the poking and prodding and more. I'm just so glad that they found this and hopefully all this means you are heading up for a long peaceful wonderful remission of sorts, you certainly deserve it. I was thinking that with all the stress you are going through outside of the disease stuff, moving, family, your hubby's retirement and all, maybe is triggering this some and when that all settles down, maybe so will your disease and sometimes the hospital can get you away for a while and force you to rest some, though I imagine they keep waking you up all the time for one thing or another. They did that to me whenever I have been in. The give you good drugs and you finally get out of pain and are resting peacefully and then they slam on the lights and shake you or say something in that annoying voice, no matter how nice you are, its annoying after like the tenth time. I hope they aren't doing that you. Then IVs are always a problem with me and that dumb buzzer goes off if I move just a little and eventually I just start pushing puttons! I hope you get peace and quiet and I'm so glad they caught the clot. You are in my thoughts and prayers always.
