Lessons learned

So I was cleaning out some boxes and I found some old blood work and lo and behold I was tested for Factor V about 10 years ago. Did I remember this? NOPE! Apparently my doctor felt I might have a blood clot disorder. Was he on the right track? Absolutely! Did he do enough testing? No, was this his fault? Absolutely not! The clotting disorder I have is not routinely tested for. Had I remembered that I had been tested for Factor V this would have really helped the doctors back when I had my massive blood clot, but such is life.

So my filter was removed, the allergic reaction has healed, but I still have some research to do on why I had the reaction. Got to love allergies! You got to take life one day at a time!

I was trying to be more active, and in return for trying to be active my pain level started increasing. My hips started hurting, so I ended up being benched! So much for trying to be more active!

I also am finding that with my new weight loss…my knee braces are getting too big again….yes..I just got new braces and these are already too big…oops! So I might need to get new ones again which is a good/bad problem to have!

Life is always an adventure so set sail and enjoy the ride!
