6 Months!!!

Happy Last Day of Coumadin!!! Six months ago today, Bri and I were racing off to the hospital with pains in my lungs. I spent a few days there and have been thinning my blood ever since. I'm VERY happy to be done with the medicating process and still a bit nervous to come off of them. I'm sure that life will return to normal before I even notice.

I have to be completely off the blood thinners for a month before revisiting the hematologist for one last check on my blood. Nobody expects to see anything though since I've also been off of birth control (with hormones) for 6 months too. So fingers crossed until September 21st for that final look.

In the meantime, I am being showered with love & support! Bri (who is on the road this morning to Oklahoma) surprised me last night with day-before-off-coumadin clean house, champagne and flowers! I also have a "Re-Birth" party on Friday - hosted by Betsy - complete with an all beer themed dinner (beer cheese soup, beer bread, beer can chicken). I am excited to kick back and have a few with my friends!

Thanks to everyone for showing me so much love and care over this time! I hope I never have to repay the favor...and everyone who ever got a sober ride from me over the dryest period of my life since I was in highschool...get ready for payback!!! I know who you are!!!
