The morning started out with an ultra sound to rule out blood clots. It didn't rule them out. Unfortunately Shell has blood clots in both legs. So the rest of the day was spent at the Pasqua Hospital. Blood thinner by injection was given,followed by a long wait. We met with Dr. Souf who referred us to an Internist/Hematologist. Since these clots were early stage these clots should dissipate with medication.
This is stronger than the aspirin she was prescribed. More blood tests are being done to find out why she is clotting. This is believed to be a reason why there has been difficulty with the flaps, as she has been on some type of blood thinner since surgery.
Shell will require a needle every morning for the next six months. I am just adding that to my LPN portfolio.
On a positive note, the weather has been outstanding, as spring has sprung early.
