Another not so good day.
I had hoped to recuperate from Sock Summit over the next two days before returning to work on Wednesday. Alas, it was not to be. ToolMan woke up this morning coughing up blood, so it was back to the ER this morning. A brief exam shows that he has internal bleeding from at least two areas; one in either his esophagus or bronchial area and another in his colon. We're hoping it's a simple case of too many blood thinners and an adjustment of medication will take care of it. Meanwhile, they've administered two units of plasma, drastically reduced his blood thinners, and are monitoring his intake and output. Tomorrow will be tests; X-rays, scans, endoscope, colonoscopy, etc. He wants to come home tomorrow, but I think they will probably keep him until the test results are back. Let's hope for a clean bill of health; both of us are more than ready for a couple of quiet, boring weekends.
