Dental Day 4....

We have been at the VA dental every day since the surgery.....today was the complete day....
Michael is not clotting properly because of the blood thinners.....Once again they had to stop the bleeding today....new meds were ordered....the Oncologist...the Dentist...the Doctor (and perhaps an Indian Chief) all had a phone conversation and it was debated if he should go in the hospital or not....Of course Michael vote was a NO.....Finally after getting things under control once again they decided to send him home with specific instructions not to bend down...no heavy lifting....no strenuous activity...medication every 6 hours....and if any bleeding occurs....STRAIGHT TO EMERGENCY!! They have taken him off his blood thiners and of course that is something we have to watch for because of the embolisms......
And we still have the bottom teeth to go.........
HELLO.....Can anyone say OVERWHELMED?!?!

HELLO:

You are being heard and you and Michael are in our prayers...

One step at a time...I will pray that Michael does not start to bleed and have to go to emergency, that things will flatten out for a time and give you each time to rest and regather your strength.

You are not alone in this journey.
