Mom update: so I am still in the hospital... they are having a difficult time getting my INR levels where they need to be so I can go home on Coumadin and not Lovenox (blood thinners) I am getting pretty frustrated and homesick as I've now been in here a whole week. I am hoping after upping the Coumadin dose today it will be where it's suppose to be and I can get out of here tomorrow. The only positive to all of this is that I'm so close to my baby girls! I am getting ready to head down to them now! Thanks for all the prayers! We love you all!! #twinmama #momofmultiples #dvtsurvivor #dvtsucks #dvtawareness

11 months ago I got married and was in the best shape of my life, squatted 135 lbs (close to my full body weight) and could pick up my 60 lb pup and hold her like a baby with ease. Today I started setting up my home gym and realized that after a month of bedrest, birth of my baby Delia and recovery from a blood clot that nearly killed me, I struggle lifting the 45 lb bar! Even though it's been a struggle, I look forward to the challenge. #fitmom #longroadtorecovery #stoptheclot #dvtawareness

It's one month off a year since I got DVT..... This last year has been challenging but it's crazy to think that a year ago I was struggling to understand why it happened to me.... I now realise that I'll never know why.... but all I can take from this hurdle in life is strength. #dvtawareness #maythurnerssyndrome #clotrecovery #compressionstocking

I hate the waiting. Hospitals should give you something fun to do while you wait. Or cake and wine...that would work, too. #dvtawareness #stoptheclot #deepveinthrombosis #factorvleiden

Anxiety is rearing it's ugly head tonight and I don't have any idea what triggered it. It's hard to trust your body to heal itself when your body created this in the first place. I've had many good days and I'm trying to focus on that. This will pass. .

You guys, I've been running for about 2 weeks now and it's slow as molasses, but I've never enjoyed it more. Running was the one thing that I felt I would never be able to do again or enjoy the same way, but you never realize how much you appreciate something until you can't do it anymore. You can see that just 4 days before I was admitted to the hospital with 2 pulmonary embolisms I was running about a 10.5 minute mile and was wishing it was faster. About 2.5 months following diagnosis I'm at about 16 or 17 minutes and I'd give anything to run that 10.5 again. I've started back at the very beginning with running/walking circuits and have been working really hard to listen to my body, keep my expectations at a reasonable level, and enjoy the process. I'll get back to my 10.5 minute mile one day. But for today, I'm just happy to be back out there. .

She's the absolute best distraction from everything. The best part is she was born the day I had my first appt. for my dvt. I saved her, but oh my, does she save me every damn day. I wholeheartedly believe she was meant to be mine. .

I had my 2 month f/u with my hematologist yesterday. We went over my f/u scans and blood testing. Good, or better yet, great news: both the dvt and 2 pe's are gone. I did test positive for 2 genetic clotting deficiencies. Factor V and antiphospholipid syndrome (aps). He stated that the aps is usually positive when on blood thinners and we won't count that as a positive test until I get tested again once I come off Xarelto in 4 months. I still experience leg pain, calf pain, chest pain, and sob which he stated was normal for now. I'm counting my blessings. I can still work. I'm alive. I've had a good healthcare team that answers questions and listens to my concerns. I'm grateful to be on this journey that has brought me a better understanding of who I am and what I can withstand. I still have more rough days than good, but I know this happened for a reason. The universe works in crazy ways and I'm trying to believe that it was trying to tell me something. Positive thoughts and hugs to everyone fighting through the physical, mental, and emotional effects this has. We can get through it all together. 😘😘😘

This life is yours and yours only. Take care of yourself first, spend time with people you love, do what makes you happy. Enjoy every heart wrenching, gut punching, raw emotion because you will be amazed at what you learn when you come through the other side. .
