An ER trip, but okay

Last night (Tuesday) he went to the Emergency Room with a possible blood clot in his arm. The pain had built up over the day, and we decided to have it checked out. He did have a clot, but it was a small one in the small vessels near the surface of his skin. Apparently this kind isn't a serious life-threatening kind because they sent him home with instructions to just apply heat pads and take Tylenol or Advil as-needed for any pain.

He took a pain pill early in the morning, but had no arm episodes, so it turned out to be a pretty good day despite the ER trip.


  1. Sorry for the trip to the ER, but glad it was our local one and he is sleeping in his own bed again. Just happened to think, is his room still orange? I see he is gaming right now on FB, so that is a happy note.

  2. Yes...his room is still orange. I keep meaning to offer to change it. Hopefully to something more neutral.
