Clotting Keeping Me Clung!

Still in the hospital, will be here through tomorrow for sure.

The clot in my arm is not any bigger than it was before, but it definitely seems to be a clot. I’ve been giving myself anti-clotting injections which seem to be working to prevent further clots.

I’ve been having very low sodium levels, and no one could quite figure out where the sodium was going. Turns out that the prednisone has probably been putting it into my legs, making them swell. So today I took some stuff to draw the sodium out from everywhere in my body and make me pee it out. Hopefully the swelling will go down.

The anti-clotting med is only available by delivery, not prescription. So we have to setup receiving it.

Will be staying the hospital overnight again with the plan to leave tomorrow barring unforseen new complications! HAH!

It’s already December 30, that’s crazy. Not many more days on the prednisone.

Today I found out the head radiation will make me dumber for a short period of time.

Happy New Year Bro. Don’t take this the wrong way, but I had a dream with you in it last night. This of course made me very concerned and I immediately logged into your blog to check on you. If Doc Emmet Brown shows up in the Delorian with a Taco Bell Grande meal, don’t take the extra sauce.

Hope you are feeling better Reid.
