🙏🏾 Grateful 🙏🏾 Thankful to God!!!
The small clot was (painfully) broken down. Most painful feeling in my life, seriously thought I was dying. I met with the pulmonary specialist this morning. He said that it was a good thing, and what they intended (not the pain of course but the clot being blasted). Because the clot was so small and caught fairly early, no serious/long-term damage to my lungs or any other organs. Over time my breathing should return to normal and the pain should subside. It’s due to the inflammation of the area, as there are no nerves in the lungs but it’s spread to some outward area. Showed me a pic but I can’t remember names. I was told that I’m lucky that it was caught while it was so small because most people they see from pulmonary embolisms are dead and it’s not a small number (so sad). He stated he said it not to scare me, but to make me aware and understand the risk of it possibly happening again vs. taking the blood thinner for life for my personal situation. Big decision that will have to be made after a few more tests and other opinions in 3 months. As for now I have to take a blood thinner for at least 6 months, and he may strongly recommend for life based on the results we get from the hematologist and a couple of lab tests they took all the blood for before I was put on the thinner. I’m alive and up and about. Life will be a little different, I can’t get pedicures, have to shave with an electric razor, use a soft brush toothbrush, etc.. Simple things taken for granted that I can deal with because I am still here for my boys and they are none the wiser. They are just excited that their daddy (who stayed home to look after me) has stayed home from work to take them to school this week..lol. Thank you so much for your prayers! Just wanted to update those who were concerned. ❤️
