Hospitalized for Christmas

I guess not everyone here saw the journals Tavi and I made on FA and DA. Last week I had been having more pain and swelling with my bad leg, and Thursday I went to have it checked out, thinking it was just a pulled muscle or something. Turns out it was another blood clot. :-( About a month ago, I went to try n find a new doctor at a local clinic here. He got all my info and asked why I was on blood thinners. I told him how I had a blood clot in my leg about 6 years ago. He wanted to do another scan and see if I still needed it. There was a little bit of the old clot left, but he decided to take me off of it anyway. Three weeks later, I'm hit with another extensive blood clot and am in the hospital for 5 days, including Christmas. Yeah, it sucks.

I'm so glad I have Tavi. He stayed with me the whole time, only leaving to go get things we needed from home. I just wish we could have cuddled, but the hospital bed was too small and I couldn't get out of it without a ton of pain. Tavi did his best to cheer me up, even decorating my room with Christmas decorations and bringing me plushies. We got lots of comments on how cute our room was. That part was nice. The hospital staff was all very nice and responded quickly to things we needed. They knew I wore diapers for medical reasons, and offered to change them, but I said Tavi could do that. He does it best. ^^

Day after day went by, and each day I hoped to be let go. Then today I get told that my blood levels are good, and that I can leave whenever I want. Without haste, we packed up and left. Just a day before my birthday! Well, its 1am here now as I write this, so now its my birthday! Hehe

We'll be going to visit my parents and will be back late Friday. I had planned to be there for Christmas, but that didn't work out. Sorta ruined everything... But at least its taken care of now. My leg is still swollen and hurting, but not as much. I just have to keep taking blood thinners, probably for the rest of my life.

Well, like I said, its my birthday and I'm so glad I'm not spending that in the hospital as well. I'm just grateful that Tavi was by my side. I love him so much. ^^ I also want to thank everyone that sent us well wishes and get well cards and pics. I really really appreciate it and it made my time there more enjoyable.

Happy birthday!

I somehow missed any previous journals about your hospital stay.  Sometimes I think doctors make poor decisions.   I'm glad the clot wasn't in a more critical area, like the brain or something.  No more going off the blood thinners!

I was in the hospital 12 years ago over Christmas. It was actually from the 22nd to the 31st. I had some quite unexpected heart surgery at the time. Then, a few week later, there were complications, and I was back in for several weeks.  During that time, my roommate visited almost every day, and would bring in some of my plushies.  By the time I was released, I have a few dozen plushies in the room.  Any time I slept, I had someone put four or five of my favorite, somewhat large ones, in bed with me. Without them, I could never have slept.  Christmas is not a good time to me in a hospital.  Half the staff was on vacation when I was in, so everything was slow.

I'm glad you are released and hopefully getting back to normal.  Having Tavi change you instead of letting them do it was cute.
