Boot Be Gone

April 8, 2010

Monday was a double banner day. Because it was the day my doctor declared, no more air cast. OK, she didn't actually declare anything, but she did cheer and laugh along with me. And I'll take that.

And then, as if the day could have been any better…the hematologist approved me stopping my daily dose of coumadin blood thinner / rat poison. I'm not being overly dramatic. Coumadin was initially developed as a rat poison. Lo and behold, scientists found it had other uses. So I've literally been ingesting rat poison for 3 months. And I'm one of the fortunate ones; many people spend a good portion of their lifetime on this medication.

Regardless, I'm thrilled, thrilled, thrilled. I'm movin' and groovin' in my recovery and doing my best to hang on to this enthusiasm. Also, I'm considering hanging this on my front door. What do you think? A little too much?

If you're happy and you know it, stomp your feet.
