Well, after a month and a half, I finally feel like I can work in the shop again.
To make a long story short, I had a blood clot from my hip to below my knee. The Dr's referred to this as a DVT...deep vein thrombosis.
I woke up one morning to find my leg twice the size of my other leg and a concerning shade of purple. Knowing that this was not normal, I went to the ER where they immediately put me on blood thinners. I ended up being there for a week.
I eventually had to undergo 2 seperate procedures to try and open the clot up. The Dr's finally had to put several stints in to keep everything flowing and now, I am starting to feel somewhat normal.
I have never experienced anything this painful. During the first several weeks, I couldn't walk do to the pain. What a miserable experience and I hope that I do not have any chronic issues from this though I probably will have to be on blood thinners and wear compression stockings for quite some time.
So, stay tuned as I promise there will be updates coming soon.
