... Took another 10 giant steps back today. Was sent by Jemsek to Lake Norman Regional Hospital for scans. They found several blood clots in the vein with the picc line.

... go to Urgent Care for possible DVT. The doctor there KNEW MORE THAN I DID. He said it was either an infection or a reaction to the drug. He wouldn't consider DVT deep venious thrombosis.

... Marsha I wanted to tell you I am thinking about you. Keep those feet up and take it easy. Whatever needs to be done will still be there tomorrow or next week or whenever. You'll get to it then. I am sure everything will be OK. If the Dr thought it was a critical situation he would have put you in the hospital. Take care of yourself and you are in my prayers. ... (6 replies)
... So sorry Marsha that things are going poorly for you right now. I hope your able to relax a little bit. Those shots should straighten things out rather quickly.

... Oh Marsha honey. I'm sorry to hear you are having such problems. Clots floating around in your body is a scary thing. Try to have faith. Those shots sound terrible. They will help you though so try to bear it. You will be in my prayers kiddo. (6 replies)
... Dearest Marsha, You have been through so much and I know you will be okay. I would not like the shots either but they are going to help you. I would be scared too about the clots. I would think between Dr. Jemsek and the blook specialist, if they thought it was that serious, they would have insisted that you go into the hospital. My prayers are with you, going to...
