Good news: Reminder- I got a blood clot after my surgeries and had to start coumadin to prevent further clots. They did an anticoagulant test while I was in the hospital and it came back positive (which is bad) but I hoped it would be a false pos. b/c I was on heparin and that can happen.
I got tested again and IT WAS A FALSE POSITIVE! YEA. I get to get off coumadin in 4-ish months! yipee.
Bad news: All had been going ok with appliances finally. I have a routine and I mostly know what to expect from them. So I decided to take a bath b/c lots of people do and have no problems. It was fine when I went to bed, but when I woke up at 3 a.m., it had leaked all over. The worst leak I'd had.
WHAT'S THE DEAL!
Now I'm afraid to go swimming.
