Out of the hospital....

...after two and a half weeks. I was diagnosed August 18th with a major mesenteric thrombosis. Or simply, a blood clot in the main vein supplying my intestines and other internal organs. I am now on blood thinners and home. I have some swelling in my intestinal wall, and as of today, the clot has dislodged and is not findable on CT scan. There are no obvious reasons for the clot, as I am not on hormonal BC and don't smoke or anything, and tested negative for all the obvious blood disorders. I am still super tired and in quite a bit of pain, so I apologize in advance for the impending quietness.

It's good to have you back, even if it's just in lurk mode for a while. Are they doing anymore testing or anymore precautionary stuff for you?
