During the webcast, MarkJ said be grateful for everything thing that happens. A few minutes later, my wife again had a spasm; on a scale of 1 to 10, the pain is a 10; the spasm lasts 1 to 2 minutes; once or twice a hour. I told her I was grateful for it. She asked why? Because it will get your attention. If I had that pain, we would have gone to the emergency room hours ago.
So we packed lightly, and went to the E.R. After a number of tests, they told us she had multiple blood clots in each lung. She was admitted to the hospital.
She was kept overnight and released the next day. I was given the assignment to give her a shot every 12 hours in the stomach. Much bruising of her stomach ensued.
In a follow up with our primary care physician, he said she was lucky to be alive.
Just before we left, I told the doctor of my plans to ride up Haleakala. He told of his adventure riding a bicycle down Haleakala. He is interested in doing the ride up. My wife will be happy that my physician will be close by during the ride.
I am grateful that I listened to MarkJ.
