Post-Op Day 11: not much progress

Doug ┬ádeveloped a clot in his left arm as a result from a central line insertion last Thursday. He is now on IV heparin, a blood thinner. Fortunately, there is no clot in his lungs. Doug is very weak from being in bed and is retaining fluid in his extremeties. The bowels still aren’t moving.

  1. If anyone knows how challenging post-op complications can be, it’s you, but I imagine it’s tough to deal with on a personal level. Keep hanging in there… both of you!! Love is winging it’s way, every day!! Leslie
