A Little Bit of a Scare
Monday, March 29, 2021
Frank awakes me at 10:15 PM with "I think we should go to Emergency". He had so much pain in his left leg (good leg) and couldn't apply any pressure to it to stand. A new pain for him and knew it was alerting him to something. After ultrasound and lab work, we found out he had a blot clot in his lower leg (DVT) Deep Vein Thrombosis. A new education, with new medication Xalerato but hopefully for only three months. These type of situations bring you back to re-evalutaion of oneself and how important it is to take care of your health daily. Frank is doing well and I am back to logging food\ intake seriously AGAIN. It's the only way I can be mindful of what goes in my mouth. Just in case I don't log daily in SP, I am carrying a journal with me to capture it all. I need clear off my treadmill - now is used as a storage unit for presents for a Spin Wheel (45 presents) for a bridal shower. I need to organize and remove gifts so I can use it for what is intended to be used for. I'll check in with you next week....and myself! Think healthy thoughts always!
