    Getting To Know You August

    I have two degrees from my local university and have never attended one of their sporting events. This is probably considered some kind of heresy for most of the population around here.

    I'll keep this in mind if it becomes necessary. Right now Mr. Flit has a follow up appointment for next week. The doctor is stetting up an overnight pulse/ oxygen test. He may get more tests or a sleep study after that.

    Having a late lunch while waiting for Mr Flit's new prescriptions. Heparin and Xeralto which he has taken before. He really liked the doctor he saw today. I've been trying to get him to go see her for months now. He has a follow up next week. We both found out that snoring can increase the possibility of blood clots. Neither one of us was aware of that. Looks like things are going to be ok. And he may have sleep apnea tests.

    Just got a call that Mr Flit has an appointment with an internist. As a great coincidence, it happens to be with my doctor who is great. Have to leave momentarily.

    Yes they are. Things seem to be going ok now, mostly just waiting until his appointment in a few hours.

    I am very aware of this. Mr. Flit tried to get the doctor to give him a different medication (that he has taken before) yesterday. He is going to find out why he wasn't given heparin yesterday. I have suggested that he contact his old doctor who treated him the first time he had this. That doctor actually misdiagnosed his condition at first. The doctor felt really bad about it, but his symptoms were atypical of DVT and the doctor thought he had a pinched nerve. He actually had symptoms of a pinched nerve. The typical swelling in the legs didn't happen until after he got to the emergency room with difficulty breathing.

    I am not happy with the doctor that Mr Flit saw yesterday. Yesterday Mr Flit had a swollen leg and foot. I finally got him to go to the walk in clinic nearby and he got an ultrasound, a DVT diagnosis ( which we had diagnosed yesterday morning), and the doctor prescribed coumadin even though it is a slow acting, difficult to take drug and it is my presumption that heparin is the standard of care for blood clots. He has an appointment for 1:30 today. The reason I am really not happy with the doctor is that now both of Mr. Flit's legs and feet are swollen. What I expect to happen is that he will see the doctor again, the doctor will see the new swelling and send him for another ultrasound, then another meeting with the doctor and maybe then he will get the heparin he should have gotten yesterday. Hopefully he won't get sent to the emergency room or throw a clot before getting the heparin. (He's been there, done that) no sign of throwing a clot currently though.

    We are back home now. Mr Flit has DVT again. Dr prescribed cumiden even though he was told that Mr Flit hates taking it and it is a very difficult med to take. Another appointment with the doctor tomorrow. Hopefully he can prescribe different meds this time.

    Back at the doctor's office now.

    Mr Filt is getting an ultrasound now. Looks like he has a blood clot in his leg again. At least he hasn't been sent to the emergency room (at least not yet). He says he is fine. His leg is swollen but it doesn't hurt. He expects to get heparin though. We've been through this before and it could be much worse. He isn't worried at all. Basically it's the devil we know.

    Since I am well under six feet I don't have this issue.

    Color recommendations

    Purple hat with white feather? I wouldn't go for black on the hat since you are doing the rest of the leather in brown. Brown leather hat with a white or purple feather would also work.
