I am still in the hospital...it's been hard. Currently I'm on 2 different antibiotics, a very strong steroid, Coumadin, frequent breathing treatments, an inhaler, oxygen and about 6 other medications. As a matter of fact, they've just added another medication tonight. I've had a chest CT scan that was helpful, a CT scan of my leg to make sure there's not another clot and an arterial blood gas test and an echocardiogram. Treatments are around the clock - just had one at midnight, then I'll have another breathing treatment at 3:15 a.m. and then another blood draw at around 6:30 a.m. Oops...they just did a blood draw now! My INR went down to 2.0 at the beginning and then jumped to 3.2 after antibiotics and other meds. were added. Luckily, I'm maintaining at around 2.4 or 2.5 now. Tomorrow will make 8 days of hospitalization.
