I went with Jimmy to the Doctor this morning to find out the results of blood tests he had taken two weeks ago.They tested him for several things because he was wanting to get off of the blood thinner he had to take for the last year. He had been put on Warfarin (blood thinner) and had to get blood tests periodically to control the clotting of blood in his leg that had a blood clot going from mid thigh to mid calf ....and to keep the clot from reaching his lungs etc. He had several ultra sounds throughout the process and they told us that a new vein was growing around the out side of the one with the clot. They told us today that that vein is supplying blood to his leg now and the old clot will eventually dissolve.
They had tested his blood two weeks ago to see if he had a clotting issue and also tested for sixteen different things before they came into the room today and told him that his test results look great! That he can go off of the Warfarin and just take an aspirin a day and to continue to wear the compression sock on that leg ...probably for the rest of his life.He can go back to eating whatever he wants and not have to watch the vitamin K that would cause the blood to thicken too much.:)
Vitamin K is mostly greens...like lettuce,cabbage, collard greens, turnip greens and anything that uses those in the recipe. (example...coleslaw and salads) He was allowed to eat them periodically..but not too much. Now he is FREE to enjoy them again!! :)
Jimmy's faith in the Lord throughout this whole year and almost 1/2 has amazed me.:)
When he was first diagnosed with the blood clot and put into the hospital for a few days..the anointing of the Lord was upon him the whole time.I wouldn't have missed being there with him for anything. When David said "Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil...for thou art with me.Thy rod and thy staff the comfort me....HE wasn't kidding! Jesus said..I will never leave you nor forsake you...HE wasn't kidding either. Praise the Lord!:)
No matter how old your child gets...they still hold your heart strings.I could probably sleep for a week now.LOL
