Doc says he will probably be there for at least 3 days, then on Coumadin for at least 6 months. Please pray that the Heparin will do its job and help him not make any more clots and dissolve the clots that he already has.
Thanks gals. I'm exhausted and heading to bed. Love you all!!!!
Oh, sweetie!! Know that we're praying!! At least he gets to take Coumadin orally. I had to give myself shots in the stomach for a while after my hip replacement surgery to prevent blood clots. You tell him that he's got a whole bus load of prayer warriors sending up prayers on his behalf!!! LYMI
