Tell Teresa we are on our 4th batch of chili! Made a double batch this time. Great stuff!

 

Teresa said she is glad you like it so well! She also said we are sorry it took us so long to get the recipe to you.

Glad things are looking up. When I read this the other night I didn't know what to say, thinking about your whole family with these struggles. You have our thoughts and prayers.

 

I was on cumiden (sp) for 6 or 7 months. A couple of times the specialist said that my blood had gotten too thin and asked if I had anything to drink alcohol-wise in the last week. My checkups were weekly. I didn't lie, and said yeah few beers the other night, no big partying or anything. Well I was suprised that I didn't get a lecture on the evils of beer, instead she told me to eat salad after having a couple. It would help bring things back into balance! I guess lettuce can thicken the blood back up slightly! This is not doctor authorized advice---LOL!

The Dr actually had possible great news.  So far, the blood tests that have come back do not show the gene factors for blood clots.  Not all tests are back yet, but if no factors show up, I won't have to stay on thinners for life.  Just have to wait & see.  My thinning number is perfect right now, but I go this coming Monday for a recheck.  Later he'll be sending me to a blood specialists for more testing.

Glad I got to talk to Daniel this evening. He is doing very well and is in high spirits. I hope he continues to stay out of the milk parlor for 4 or 5 more days. The more rest he gets right now the better he'll do when ho goes back to it.

Great news! If it's not genetic, why do they think you got the clots? Overwork?

Great to hear Daniel. I know your doctors will know, but don't let them have you quit the blooder thinners cold turkey, that can cause issues themselves. Same thing with lasic meds to reduce water.

The clots they say were bad and plentiful in my calf, and must have done a lot of damage.  Walking still hurts a lot still, as that calf feels like it's in a knot when I go to walk.  The more I walk the better it gets, but then I'm so tired.  Oh well, all a part of getting better.

  In my entire life, this is way & beyond longer than I've ever gone without working, and they way I've felt, I am good with not working.  I am however a bit bored.  My goal is to give Josh Sunday off, but I'll have to see how I feel come Saturday.  Not sure if I can handle a whole day's chores right off, even though Sunday chores have a few hours off in between milkings.

My understanding is that broad leafy veggies like lettuce and cabbage tend to thicken the blood.  When I was on cumiden I had to stay away from those veggies. 

 

Daniel that is good news and I hope the other tests come back with the same good news.  My FIL is on blood thinner for the rest of his life and he has to go in once a month to have it checked.  It sure would be nice if you didn't have to go through that.  You are going to be weak for a while, your body has been through a big trauma so don't just jump back into the chores, ease back into them and give your body a chance to catch up.

Glad to hear your doing a lot better & mostly that you understand to come back SLOWLY. For me pushing myself has sometimes caused more problems later. Prayers for you & your family during this recovery that ALL things will work out well.

Take it easy,your body will let you know when it's OK to start slowly working again. It takes awhile for things to get back to where you were before. Believe me I know what it feels like to want to get right back at doing stuff, start small and slowly work to doing the bigger tasks.Don't overdo it you certainly don't want a relapse [or worse].
