More clots

Yesterday mom still had some nausea, as well as aching bones, but she seemed to be feeling a little better.

Today she found out she has another blood clot under her arm in a spot that had been bothering her and had been sore. The hospital in Geneseo was able to find it without a scan, I can’t remember what she called the contraption they used… something with a lot of tubes. So now, she is off the Coumoudin and just going to go with the Lovonex shots on a daily basis to dissolve the clots. It has been very hard to regulate her INR level this last week, so backing off of that and using the Lovonex should bring the clots under control and prevent others from forming.
