I spent a lot of time crying and being angry at the situation. The side effects of the coumadin were starting to catch up to me. My hair was falling out, I started experiencing severe lower back pain, and my "monthly visitor" was HORRIBLE! (sorry, TMI, I know) Not to mention the WEEKLY trips to the lab for blood draws to determine the correct dosage of coumadin.
Bottom line is...I am alive and well. I am not at risk to develop any more blood clots and so I am thankful for that. I only have 3 days left to be on blood thinners and I am going to celebrate!
Although I feel like I was in some sort of "funk" for that last 3 months, I still took pictures...and I'm glad I did! I have enjoyed looking back at them because a part of me feels like I wasn't really there. Or that I was there...just not myself. So seeing them brings back good memories and makes me smile! I hope some of them make you smile, too!
