Good News on Mike

The doctor removed him from all restrictions. He is still in the healing phase of these blood clots but they feel he is doing well enough to work part-time. I restricted that work even further in that he is allowed to work locally only, no white nuckle mountain trips for a while, nothing but within ten -20 miles in each direction. Mike agreed to it. Driving in the car is not good for someone healing from blood clots in the legs let alone the wear and tear on him otherwise. No med changes except that the Lasix is reduced and all will be re-evaluated in 3 months. He wants him on all of the meds until his next check. Then we did blood work for the coumadin levels. We will see how that comes back on Monday. His cardiologist said when the right side heals from the blood clots then we will talk about adjusting. And then he gave him heck for leaving the hospital too soon after his heat attack. He said you know you could have died, in fact the chances of you dying were greater than you living with what happened to you. Mike hung his head and said I know it was stupid. The doctor also told him he was the one in five who develop blood clots after a stent is placed when Plavix isn't enough.

So that is good news. He is on the road let's pray he stays that way!

Judy, that is SUPER news. Now take a deep breath and take some time for yourself to deal with the loss of your Dad and the scare of losing Mike. Days will get brighter in time. Many hugs.
