Guys, I was given a mission. To talk to you about Thrombosis. And today, October 13th, is World Thrombosis Day. @worldthrombosisday. Do you know what it is? Do you know that 1 in 4 deaths are related to Thrombosis? The numbers say it all. I am a survivor. I am honored to be here sharing a little bit of my story. I was pregnant, my first and only pregnancy. It all started with Hyperemesis gravidarum, if you know this condition, you know that you have chronic morning sickness the whole time during pregnancy. This lead to dehydration and too much rest. That, plus hormones were the perfect formula to form a blood clot that went from the back of my knee all the way to my vena cava (chest area). That's a massive one! These blood clots break down as a mechanism of defense and travel to your lungs, brain, etc... Killing you in seconds. It blows my mind to think that Kenneth and I both survived it all. More than ever, I believe that there's a time, a perfect time for everyone. That was not our time. I was supposed to be here today, telling you that this can happen to anyone. You don't have to be old, out of shape, pregnant, etc... to develop a blood clot (Thrombosis). My advice is: get educated, get moving, keep yourself hydrated and get yourself checked for clotting mutations if they run in your family. Don't stay in the same position for more than two hours, move, stretch, keep that blood flowing. Keep your life flowing. The longer your blood sits in the same spot, the higher the chances are for a blood clot to develop. Today, my blood circulation is assisted by three stents. These stents keep me alive. My friend from college lost her life to a blood clot in her brain a few months ago. Her two daughters are under the care of their grandmother. She had severe head aches for years. This is for you, Gina! ❤️ Your beautiful smile could light up a room, you were light. For you my friend. Every day, for us, is a huge blessing ❤️🙏🏼 Life is beautiful friends, it's worth it. #keeplifeflowing #knowthrombosis #bloodclotsurvivor #nomorebloodclots here, a little clip from my video where I shared my experience with Thrombosis.
