mom's home

September 15th, 2011 at 01:25 pm

After 3 days in the hospital, mom was allowed home yesterday. She had 2 blood clots in her lungs and one in her right calf and one behind her left knee. The put her on cumadin for 6 months.

I spent most of the last 3 days in the hospital. My dad can hardly hear and mom is so tired she doesn't remember a lot of what they tell her, so I was there to pay attention to what was going on.

She was extremly happy to make it home yesterday, as is anyone who's spent any amount of time in the hospital.

Thanks to everyone for their well wishes

I finished reading my book Wild Thing - Paranormal short stories - very good.

I also finished the library book Cold Vengence by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Mystery - excellent.

    Be careful of her with that coumadin about falling down.

    Glad to hear your Mom is doing better.

    Be warned about cumadin: My mom was on this for a while before she passed away.

    1. There is a BIG list of foods on the do NOT eat list as they interfer w/cumadin. Most would be VERY hard for me to give up and there will be big dietary dhanges needed

    2. There are frequent blood tests to determine blood levels of the cumadin and the dose(s) are constantly adjusted.

    3. Even the smallest bump, bruise, cut can have VERY serious bleeding (even a paper cut).
