well for those of you that don't already know. I just got out of the hospital yesterday afternoon. I went in on Wednesday because of pain in my leg and numbness in my right hand and found that not only did i ahve carbal tunnel in my hand. I have a huge blood clot in my leg and 3 in my lungs. I'm once again on coumadin and lovenox (both are bloodthinners). the doctors have said that since they started the blood test so early there is now way to definativly prove that I have a genetic clotting disorder but they are treating it as such. They have said i will be on coumadin for the rest of my life. Besides this bad news.....I'm not going to be able to have children due to the coumadin. any time i would get pregnant the thinned blood would cause me to loose the baby.

I'm on a walker currently since I can't get arounmd, and i will have to wear a wristed breaced for a good long whiile probably as long as my hand continues to be numb. (which is making typing this even more interesting). Mom spend every day there with me and Christy was there too, she would stay at the house with mom and come with her and stay at the hospital too. she even offered to spend the night at the hospital if i needed her.

When the doctor told me about the blood clot, he just said it and walked out of the room. I broke down. I was and am so scared. Both mom and Christy held me while i cried. I'm scared about BG, about not being able to go. I'm scared about never having kids, and about dying. I've never going to be able to donate blood again, and i have a rare blood type that they call me in to donate when they need me. I worried about how i will make it on my own a BG, I'm still planning on living off campus, but I'm going to talk to the college and see if there is a way for me to park closer than just commuter parking due to my legs.


Well I guess that it is, some people I have lost your numbers for (Haullie you are one of them) and I wasn't able to contact you. Please send me numbers so this won't happen again.


Thanks everyone for listening
