It has been a week since I discovered that I have a blood clot behind my left knee. Things are looking good. I have been on Coumadin, and my blood levels are looking good (I have to go in every few days to have my blood tested). I still have a tremendous amount of pain in my left leg, but the swelling has gone done, so that has taken away some of the pain that I had at the beginning. The doctor wants me to continue with life as normal, so I am back to work at the local middle school. I do need to make sure to have time to put my leg up, that is the only way to get total relief from the pain. The cold/flu I was dealing with has finally gone away, so I am feeling better that away, which is very good news.
Jenny and I appreciate the support that we have received through this experience. Thank you for you prayers and concern.
