Day Fourteen

Pulmonary Embolism Recovery
Less blood in my sputum. I'm happy about that!

Today is my last dose of Lovenox at 9PM and moving forward I will only be taking Coumadin.

I meet with my family doctor who confirms that I did NOT have a DVT(deep vein thrombosis), hence a DVT was NOT the source of my Pulmonary Embolism. He was certain that the root of the clots was pressure applied(by someone in the operation room) to an artery during the surgery.  Hearing this didn't make me very happy.

Hernia Recovery
Each day I feel a little less pain, but progress is slow and I'm not moving around nearly as fast as I'd like to.
