I think sunday was the first time I was ever in the ER when I could honestly say that the amount of pain I was in was a 10. It fukn HURTS.
So after finding the blood clots, they put me on Coumadin for the next THREE MONTHS. Great. But, before the coumadin kicks in I have to give myself a shot of 100mg of Lovenox every night which helps to treat and prevent blood clots. They gave me some Ativan too because I'll tell ya, with a broken leg AND blood clots, makes it rather almost impossible to get comfortable to sleep, so I just lay and cry. I took one of those last night before bed. DURING THE STEELER game mind you. Yes, I did fall asleep rather quickly, (which is new, and kinda nice), BUT, I woke up at 2am crying. So, had to get up to get pain pills again.. I can't WAIT until this blood thinner crap starts to work, standing hurts, especially first thing in the morning.. that's a good 10 minute cry until my leg is used to being on the ground again.. I want to get back in bed now. What really sucks, is getting so frustrated at the pain, and annoyance of all this bullshit, that now and again I chuck the crutches across the room and whatever, and then sit there cuz I can't reach them, and then cry some more. For someone who don't cry too much.. I've done enough of it in the last two weeks to last me the rest of my life.
