Home once more

Far Guy got the okay to come home.  He MUST rest and take it easy. Doctors orders.  We have to go in to the hospital and have a blood test and see the Doc today and Sunday.  They are monitoring the level of the coumadin/warfarin/rat poison in his system.  I hope eventually we can monitor this at home.  I shudder to think of all the germs he will encounter on each visit to the hospital/clinic.

One day at a time. Hopefully the third time is a charm.   Chance is happy to have us all in one place.  It is really cold here…way below zero.  -22F Friday morning that is –30C eh!

I am tired. We all napped yesterday afternoon.  Naan bread pizza and a bowl of fruit…blackberries, bananas and pineapple was supper.

  1. I'm so glad you're both home! I hope Far Guy's recovery is non-eventful and peaceful. I've seen a blood thinner advertised on tv that is supposed to be less toxic than warfarin or Coumadin...I think it's called Eliquis or something like that. I'm wondering if that might be an option? My godmother has been on Coumadin for years and years and has her blood tested once per month now. I'm sure she got it tested much more often when she first started it. She goes to the hospital lab to have her blood drawn. She sneaks in and sneaks out. Perhaps your hubby could do that too and not be exposed to too many germs. It's hard, I know. Many prayers being sent your way. Take one day at a time and remember to breathe. xxx

    1. Yes the newer blood thinner was an option but has no antidote. We felt medically Coumadin was a safer option. Yes hopefully after the dose is stable visits to the lab will be less. :)

  10. Dagan's been on blood thinner several times (might be right now, actually?). I hope FargGuy's bloodwork evens out quickly so he doesn't have to go in as often. I'd ask them about the germ problem and what they would suggest. Love and hugs!!
