So, last week I promised everyone that I would be putting up some fun and exciting posts soon. Obviously, I haven't done anything yet, but for good reason. On Friday I was diagnosed with a blood clot in my left leg...then on Sunday I was diagnosed with two pulmonary embolisms on Sunday (i.e. a couple pieces of the clot broke off and migrated to my lungs). So, I've been in the hospital for the last couple of days.
The good news:
They should let me go home sometime tomorrow. My doctor says the embolisms are small enough that they shouldn't cause any major problems, but they want me to stay here in the hospital until my medication kicks in (it takes a few days). Hopefully this isn't due to some previously unknown blood disorder (if it is I'll have to be on blood thinners for the rest of my life). I'll keep you all posted.
