Well, we didn't make it to the end of January before we had to make more trips to the hospital. Actually we didn't make it out of December. Right after Christmas, Dave was coming down the stairs and heard/felt a "pop" in his left knee. He had ruptured a Baker's Cyst, and his leg started swelling up. It didn't get better, and the symptoms are almost the same as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), so we got nervous and ended up spending New Year's eve at the hospital. They ruled out DVT and sent him home again, saying it would soon resolve on its own.
It didn't - it got worse. His leg got bigger, redder, and more painful, and today they did an ultrasound and diagnosed a DVT. So now he's on Warfarin (pills) and Fondaparinux (injections) and he's being followed by the "Blood Thinning Clinic." And he's pretty scared. I had a minor surgical procedure myself today, and I'm just putting one foot in front of the other.
Onward, into 2008.
(The Bone Marrow Biopsy is still scheduled for January 29th.)
