Bad News For Me…

 
I had a doctor appointment today.  Besides the problems with my feet, it looks as if I also have Phlebitis in both legs.  They look like Popeye’s forearms.  It’s a vein thing but the danger is that a blood clot can form and move to the lungs and then heart.  My doctor thinks that I already have a clot in my lungs. 
 
On Thursday I go in for an ultrasound and if it’s positive, off  to emergency.  Not sure what they will do, but I’m nervous.  No pain… just swollen calves, numbness and shortness of breath.  It’s the same hospital where I had my toe amputated, so they know me.  Please don’t worry….. I’ve been through enough that I know I’ll been fine.  By the way, the doctor said that my feet looked fine…..  a plus!!!
 
My neighbor Rod has been a big help.  Today was trash day and he took care of mine.  Becky helped too.  I have cancelled our St. Patrick’s dinner.  Just not in the mood, ya know??  We’ll do it later.  Besides, I can’t find my ‘Blarney Bob’ apron!!  lol!
 
It was 87F here today!!!  Spring??…  More like Summer!  70’s tomorrow.
 
Well, my brain is elsewhere now so I’ll post again tomorrow.
 
Have a GREAT St. Pats!!!

    Sorry to hear this, I, like John have been on baby aspirin for years. As you have, I have been on the table many of times, I want to pass this on to you. I always tell them this, "My threshold for pain is lower than the floor, I don’t want to feel a thing."Good luck
