GratefullyRecovering: Sick with severe bronchitis, so not been doing much writing lately.
The blood clot issue is going much better. After I wrote the last entry, the blood thinner medications failed to work and I ended up with a blood clot in my heart. They life flighted me to a bigger hospital here in Ohio. Columbus. They put a filter in and have since removed it but told me if I ever have major surgery I have to have it put back in.
So I'm on a medication called Xarelto. It seems to be working now. I have to stay on it til the middle of next year.
Other than that, just dealing with life... depression... another suicide attempt... I almost did it this time for good. Please keep my family and myself in prayer, we desperately need it. Thanks guys.

    GratefullyRecovering: Thank you both so much, you made me cry- in a good way! lol Thanks guys. I'm feeling a lil better today, got some meds for the bronchitis and stuff. So yes, I agree, prayer works! And it is as we speak. Please also keep my mother in prayer and my grandmother. Thanks guys!

GratefullyRecovering: Hey guys, thanks for all the great and helpful reviews lately! I haven't been writing or as on here much as I want to. I would really appreciate any prayers or well wishes you all can muster. I recently found out that I have a large blood clot in my right leg that spread to both of my lungs. So I not only have the blood clot in my leg, but now one in each lung.
The doctors have me on two blood thinners for now and said it would take six months or more for it to get better. So please keep me in prayer/well wishes.
As well as me, my mother has been sick with something different of course, her nerves make her sick and this time was pretty bad and she's still not feeling well.
Just remember my entire family in prayer or well wishes or both :) We could really use it.
Thanks guys!

GratefullyRecovering: Not having such a great time lately, broke my ankle two days ago. Pray for me please if you do.

    Lulube: I'm right there with you. I broke my right wrist Mar. 1 still is bad it healed wrong. Tip make sure you get an xray if anyone touches your cast or moves your toes or anything. My specialist was showing me how to stretch my fingers, slammed them down flat then changed my sloppy then cast but did not xray. Bones were sent to jig jag to heal. Careful.

GratefullyRecovering: Hey guys, sorry I haven't been around for awhile. I ended up with 2 kidney stones, one on each side. They had to get me into surgery and put stints in, then Friday I have to see the doc after I just got out of the hospital for 3 days. Then they're going to basically blast the stones out and once they pass they'll take the stints out in surgery. Anyway, I'm at home finally :) still sick but okay :) If you pray, please do so for me and my family. Love you guys!
