To all my friends. Sorry if I haven't been writing lately. My dad just had a BIG heart attack. He's 85 and lost 65% of his heart. He's home now, but the last week has been hell. I was driving back and forth to the hospital, doing errands, taking care of my 4 children and probably drove in one week more than I do in a month. Besides the clot and tumor disease I have fibromyalgia, so since I am drained it has flared up and to top that I am having horrific pains in my belly.(Can this be from the coumadin?) Sorry for venting. I am ready to collapse. My INR dropped again as well. AAAHHHH....I need to rest but I am a people pleaser and place everyone before me. It's hard not having siblings to help out.......Love to all.... Jude
