First of all I want to say thank you so much for all of your concern and prayers!!!
I had to have a couple of procedures done on my leg to remove the clot and they put a stint in.
It appears I have had some abnormal sized veins probably since I was born, and it wasn't detected until the combination of birth control pills (to help prevent ovarian cysts) and smoking (yes, I know, bad Nicki!!)
compounded the issue and formed massive clots running from my stomach down past my knee.
They have me on blood thinners and anti coagulants. I get to have my finger pricked several times a week to check my clotting time. But I am alive!! Wow is it ever good to be alive after going through such a huge scare.
I have to stop the birth control and quit smoking cold turkey. So far, so good.
I've been home since Thursday night but a little too scatter brained and sore from everything to get on here and update.
Today I am finally able to walk some and am going to venture out to the grocery for a short trip.
Again thank you so so much for your thoughts and prayers!!!
