So we went to the Farmers Market on Saturday morning and walked around for a little bit, maybe 3 hours, and it wasn't a 3 hour hike or anything, just a casual stroll. I noticed that my right leg aka "clotty" was acting up a little and felt heavy, much of the same symptoms as before. So we went home and rested a bit, I knew clotty was swollen, but didn't think much of it.
Sunday I go to put my dress capri's on for Church and notice that one leg is considerably tighter than the other. I knew it had been swollen the night before as I compared leg sizes in the mirror. I should say that usually the swelling goes down within a couple of hours, so far it had been swollen for close to 24 straight. We go to church and then drop Ava off with Adam, and I tell him I might have to go to the ER depending on what the doctors say.
I drop my sister off at the airport and do a quick trip to the grocery store. When I returned home I called the after hours clinic, desperately hoping that I can just come in on Monday for an appt. But alas no, I have to make yet another trip to the emergency room.
So after waiting in my room for an hour and a half, I finally get pushed by this little old lady in a wheel chair. It was very bizarre, I kept wanting to ask her if she would like to sit and maybe I should push. But luckily for me I refrained, I'm pretty sure she would have smacked me had I actually asked.
The feeling of being pushed down that tan and purple hallway to discover you might have another blood clot, which would mean I would be on blood thinners indefinitely is, well annoying. I can't do a lot of the exercises I used to do, and I can't just do a lot of things I used to do. It's again, annoying.
The ultra sound tech was unnecessarily messy. Not kidding there was goopy hot gel everywhere, all over my leg and thigh and her glove and the bed. Gross. She has to push down hard to get my veins to collapse and then...what? spring back up again? So she's bruising my inner thigh practically trying to see something, and luckily she doesn't. After she's done and I use three towels to get the crap off my thighs I wait in the freezing cold hallway in nothing but my skiviies and my gown that covers nothing for over a half hour!
Good times. I did manage, through my headache to bake a Dark Chocolate Cheesecake. I have pictures and will post them later....yeah yeah I'm fully aware I haven't posted the pictures from the truffles, I'm getting to it!!
So, how was your weekend?
