Results of my Doppler Ultrasound - May 2nd, 2010

I know I haven't posted in a while, but there was not much to report.  I'm still waiting for this blood clot to dissolve so I can get off this Coumadin.  I went for another doppler ultrasound in Barrie yesterday and was told that there is much better flow but the clot has not totally disolved.  I'm to stay on Coumadin and see them in another four months.  I continue to have someone come to the house and take blood, once a week to keep my levels in the right range.

In the meantime I'm going to try to get a doppler done in Cornwall so I don't have to go back to Barrie.  One  thing that is good about going to Barrie is that I get to visit my sister and her husband.  We have such a good time when we go there.  We have made some new friends and they treat us very well and make us the best meals. 

Last week I started back on Prozac cause I felt like crying all the time.  I had a knot in my throat for the stupidest things ie sad articles and movies, struggling to make my bed etc.  The doctor had taken me off when I started the Coumadin and I really did not think I needed it anymore.  Well, I guessed wrong as I'm feeling much better emotionally!

My energy seems to be up and down, so I'm not sure if it's the effects of the Coumadin.  I've been reading a lot about CCSVI and there is still a lot of mixed reviews as some do really well while others do not.  Is it placebo, who knows!

In the meantime, I walk around the house using my walker and try to keep positive!

    The EDSS "scores" do indeed flucuate..and they are very indicative of where you are..the best barometer is YOU.
    good day..not so good day..and so on
    your tears are never silly..we have many things in this life that elicit tears...from deep down..
    I used to stuff my tears..but now I let myself cry..it is a catharsis
    hugs to you..TC
