Today my Dad began having extreme leg pain in his left calf muscle. It got to the point where he was limping and noticed that the calf was swollen. I am very proud of him for listening to his body and taking these symptoms seriously. He called my Mom at work and told her about his leg. After calling his Oncologist at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance it was decided that he needed to get to a hospital immediately. Dad was given an ultrasound and it was discovered that he had a blood clot behind his left knee. We immediately got him down to the SCCA where they gave him a shot in his belly. Mom has to get him back to the hospital tomorrow so that he can get another shot and so the doctor can teach Mom how to give him the belly shots at home.
A very sweet friend of Amy's named Melana lives in a nice condo in Seattle, close to SCCA, and offered to let my parents stay at her place tonight so they wont have to make that long trip again tomorrow morning. They felt like they were invading her space but she promised them that it was her pleasure to turn her condo over to them for the night. We are blessed to have such great friends in our lives. Thanks again Melana!
We will keep you posted on the outcome of tomorrows visit to the doctor.
I love you more than my lawn needs mowing-
