A little uneasy right now.......

I was at work yesterday when I started to spit up blood again...including a few clots of blood. After calling the dr, he decided to lower the Lovenox and keep an eye on me (Lovenox is the shot I take 2 X day for thinning the blood). I slept good last night but when I was up drinking my coffee, I started spitting up stomach bile...the real nasty tasting stuff that is yellow. SO....we called the dr again and we are  lowering the Lovenox to 40 mg PLUS taking Prilosec and Zantac. Dr. Dy is insistant it is an ulcer from the chemo. I hope it is that easy and nothing bleeding internally that could get worse. To say the least, I am a little concerned with the blood problem. I have no pain so it's a little hard to diagnose. My team of doctors have did such a wonderful job this past year of keeping everything mostly calm, so I am praying for stability during this Christmas season.

I am at work today but my flannel sheets sure sound good about right now.

I go to Texas for the 3 month checkup in January so maybe I can have it all straightened out by then.

We have 50 sets of cards left to sell so PLEASE call if you would like a set for $15. Some are Christmas cards but alot can be used throughout the whole winter.

I will keep you updated on the bleeding issue but hopefully by lowering the dose, the bleeding will go away. And that the drugs will soothe my tummy.

Each morning and night when I pray, I tell God I do not know how I could do this without Him being front and center! No matter what happens with this blood issue, I know God has a plan, and I know that He knows what's best for me.

God Bless you all this Christmas Season!

  2. I'm sorry to hear that, Patty. I sure hope you can get this straightened out soon; not a nice thing to have to put up with at Christmas time. Prayers going up for you.
    I would still take 2 boxes of cards. I can come pick them up somewhere if you let me know where.
    Keep the faith; you really couldn't get through this without our Heavenly Father; he is good!
    Hugs and love to you and yours.
