So I go to the ER for the second time in two weeks. First time the tell me I have a kidney infection (with no pain, no outward symptoms) that is affecting my diaphragm and rt lung. Antibiotics for a week and then think I'm fine. Thurs 3am (or is that Fri) anyway. Terrible pain in right lung when breathing deep.

Turns out after a day of tests that I have several blood clots in my right lung and one in my left. I'll be here for 3 or 4 more days getting the cumadin figured out.

Bummer.

Ugh! I HATE being in the hospital! I'm so sorry that you're stuck there, especially knowing that it's going to be a few days. The only good thing about being in a hospital is that it's really the only place you can be right now that will help you. I've been in a few times with pneumonia. The worst thing? Trying to sleep! The one place a person should really get rest, and you can't LOL

I hope the cumadin melts away those blood clots, and that you're able to come home very soon.
Take care Sharonca and get home soon,
Suzann
