Dr. Visit

Some photos from my hospital stay...

Today I went for my PT/INR test which is what they use to determine how thin my blood is. Good levels for me are between a 2 and a 3. We went to my family Dr. for a follow up this afternoon and when he got the results I was at a 6! So needless to say he has taken me off it for a few days so my blood gets back to normal levels and then I take a lesser dose each day after that. I still get pain in my chest each day, and of course it worries me but I'll worry myself to death before anything else if I don't stop thinking about it all the time. I feel more at ease after seeing him. When I was getting my blood drawn this morning I nearly passed out; they had to do it twice since the first time I started blacking out. Scary feeling. I have to go back Monday for another one, oh boy. But hopefully this will all get better soon and I can be a normal, young, healthy girl.
