a health update

Since you suffered through the longest post ever, I'll keep this one short, mostly because I'm waiting for the Vicodin to kick in so I can hopefully get some sleep.

I found out on Monday that my INR level is moving in the wrong direction and that it was actually lower than when I was discharged from the hospital. They doubled my dosage of warfarin and I get checked again tomorrow to see what's going on. I'm also going to try to squeeze in an appointment with a warfarin "education nurse." Hopefully my long list of questions will be answered, at least in part.

I'm trying my best to be optimistic but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little sad and, at times, terrified.  
So many of you have been WONDERFUL, sending flowers, bringing over food, magazines, movies, cooking for me, even painting my fingernails. I feel incredibly loved.

And while it does hurt to laugh, I do appreciate things like this:
