Wrap up

Thank God its the weekend.

So I started my coumadin. And while a pill is so much easier to take than the dreadful Lovenox shots, its not that simple. Turns out it takes some tweaking to get the right dose for each person. My INR levels need to be between 2 and 3. My first check I was 1.1 and 1.2 the next. When I went to 1.3 the following check I was for sure I was on the right track. Today I was a whoping.....1. Seriously I dropped. I have done everything right. Including cutting out ALL vitamin K for the time being. Its such a pain in the @$$, but I am beyond ready to be done with needles. But not being able to have any greens, mostly my most favorites like spinach and okra, is killing me. I have to watch everything I eat. Why is it when someone tells you that you can't eat something, you crave nothing but that. What I would give for a big ol heap of buttery spinach. Atleast I have an excuse for not eating spaghetti. Cant have marinara sauce.

And on top of everything else, I have some sort of eye infecton thing going on. If its not gone by sunday, I will make an appt. It started in my right eye. The morning I was going to call the Dr, it was magically gone. Only to reaapear in my left eye, now that its the weekend again.

But atleast its the weekend :)
