Fresh as a flower

I finally got a shower tonight, which was well overdue. I feel so REFRESHED. Got my hair washed and curled. New bandages on my torso.

I did find one new bruise on my tummy. I don't know if I stretched too much or what. It's sore in that spot, so I'll have to watch it to make sure it isn't really a 'new' bruise.

Tomorrow is coumadin clinic again. When I went in on Monday to check my clotting time, my INR/PT was only 1.5, up from 1.2 on Friday. They upped my coumadin to a stunning 12.5 Monday night, and 10 tonight. I'm still doing the Lovenox shots twice daily to avoid clots until my coumadin levels get above 2.2. When I was trying to get my levels up last time, they went as high as 10 mg a night, and then maintained at 10 3x a week and 7.5 4x a week. 12.5mg just seems so high. I can't wait until I can stop the shots, though.

Outside of that, I only took ONE painpill today. I was really sleepy though. After the boys went to school, I went back to sleep. I set an alarm because I had a 9 am call with my boss, then two calls back-to-back after it. My boss finished up early, so I was off the call by 9:30. On the OFF chance I fell back asleep, as I am so likely to do right now (Coumadin side effect? After-effects of surgery? Quirk of APS? Combination of the three? Who knows!), I set my alarm for 5 minutes before 10 to be able to make the next call. The alarm went off and, you guessed it, I fell RIGHT back to sleep! I woke up 30 minutes later and called in halfway through an important call, which my boss was ON! How capable do I look when I can't stay awake for 30 freaking minutes? I swear, if they would just start my workday for now sometime after noon, I would probably be more productive. :)

Speaking of flowers!!!!! I took the two flower arrangements out and hung them to dry in our downstairs bath. It smells like HEAVEN when you go in there - enclosed space with tons of roses and other flowers drying. In another couple of days, they should be dried all the way through the petals and I can put them back out.
