Blood Clot In Hand

    blood clot

  • (blood clotting) blood coagulation: a process in which liquid blood is changed into a semisolid mass (a blood clot)
  • A thrombus (Greek ???????), or blood clot, is the final product of the blood coagulation step in hemostasis. It is achieved via the aggregation of platelets that form a platelet plug, and the activation of the humoral coagulation system (i.e. clotting factors).
  • a semisolid mass of coagulated red and white blood cells
  • A gelatinous or semisolid mass of coagulated blood

  • under control; “the riots were in hand”

  • Running under restraint to conserve energy.

April 8th 2008, the day I thought I was going to die Part II

They put me in a room and put the blood pressure cuff on my right arm and a heart rate monitor on my left index finger. Blood pressure cup begins to fill, and fill and fill then the decrease in pressure of the air returned the blood to my lower arm, hand and eventually to my fingers… Then came the needle pricks and blood was taken out of the left arm while an IV was placed in the right arm.

ALARM ALARM ALARM the blood pressure machine was spitting out alarms due to the level my blood pressure was at. 239/185 which is not good, not a good thing at all… They continue to take my blood pressure every couple of minutes which only makes me more stressed… ALARM ALARM ALARM!

The doctor comes in and says lets get a chest x-ray… so they wheel me, bed and all down to x-ray and snap, snap and my bones are shinning and a little green radioactivity later I am wheeled back to my room. Hour goes by… By this time they have allowed my partner to come back with me and he is trying his best to keep me occupied but I don’t think I was listening that much… it was just enough to have him hold my hand. Hours tick by on the clock… tick, tock, tick tock.

Finally the doctor comes back in and says that the x-rays look good and no sign of an cardiac distress or whatever fancy word he used to say your heart is ok. Your blood work came back though and we know what is happening to you… Okay, awesome… great… what is it doc? You have a blood clot, or several we are not sure but we are going to take you down to the radiology apartment and have an ultrasound done on your legs… An hour or so after being wheeled down to radiology again and barley missing innocent passers in the hallways I was done with the ultrasound, I think it was actually a Doppler but details details… After waiting another couple of hours (We arrived at Evergreen at about 4:30pm and it was getting close to being about 2:45am).

Confirmed, you have 3 large clots in your right leg… then the explanation, questioning and ultimently what my life would be like for the next 6 months… I had to have Fragmin injections (Fragmin {dalteparin} is an anticoagulant used to prevent blood clots such as deep vein thrombosis, which can lead to clots in the lungs) until my INR (International Normalised Ratio) is the ratio between the coagulation time of a sample of blood and the normal coagulation time, when coagulation takes place. The purpose of anticoagulant treatment is to prolong coagulation). I had to have 5 Fragmin injections in all and have them every 12 hours which meant we had to come back to Evergreen each 12 hours. What a pain, literally in the tummy! I started on a medication called Warfarin (Warfarin is an anticoagulant used to to prevent heart attacks, strokes, and blood clots).

There is more to this story, but I will leave that for another time.

Price of Love

Price of Love
Day 157 – The price I paid for the best friend I have ever had. My body changed so drastically, stretching 100 pounds in weight and deflating again, the skin ripped and torn, the blood clots that ravished my left leg, my beauty faded… none of those things matter when I think about what joy it has given me.

Aadon is the brightest shining star in orbit. He is the sunshine breaking through my cloud. He is the driving force that keeps me marching forward. I would not have changed a thing. I would pay this price a thousand times over.

Maybe I will never come to terms fully with what my body has become. But at least I must TRY. Such a large community of 365ers trying to know themselves, to reflect and love themselves. I am amongst them trying to come to terms. I was crying when I took this photo. Aadon came into the room and said "Mama, pretty? pretty…" and shook his head yes. In that moment, he convinced me that what was in the mirror before me was not ugly at all… I love you Aadon.
