Dying Man’s Daily Journal – LIFE

I am feeling good, life is good and I am so grateful for every moment of it. Went to the hospital for blood work this morning early this afternoon some time they will be calling to tell me if they want any adjustments to my blood thinning medications. They are keeping a very close eye on that wanting it to be as thin as possible with consideration being given to the size of some of those little veins it must now flow through. Blood clots are a major concern and am on anti clotting medications. All this simply means I bleed and bruise much easier which is a nuisance but, hey, if this is what it takes, not a big deal. Part of the blood thinning medication includes 2 needles, I give myself in my stomach which is no big deal at all but the injection does cause bleeding both internally and externally. Considering the benefit again it is a small price to pay. My stomach from the belly button downward is on massive big bruise (the internal bleeding). Externally I will think I have the bleeding under control and just carry on with what ever. Not that easy, have gotten a fair amount of blood on 2 shirts and a pair of jeans.
Now that all may sound like I am whining or complaining but really I am not, I am just explaining what is going on. I am just so happy to be alive that anything like that doesn’t even register as the slightest of bumps on the highway of life and nor should it.
The thought just hit me as I am sitting here, of how much my thinking has been changed. i just have to laugh now at how ridiculously serious I used to take things. There was a day and not that long ago that I would have been upset, I mean blood over 2 shirts and a pair of jeans how annoying is that. Now, it is just, Vi is very good with the laundry and she may get those stains out but if not, oh well not a big deal.
What would be your thoughts if that happened to you?
Just noticed add bed sheets to list of bloodied things

    Hi Bill,
    I just love your Attitude you been having lately! Blood on some shirts or pants is nothing if you ask me. The main thing is you keeping that Attitude and not letting the devil put all kinds of nonsense into your mind and thinking!! Think only positive thoughts even tho it is hard to do but you will do so much better.
    God Bless you and Vi!

    Okay….that’d be alarming. Seriously. Even if it’s to be expected, I know my reaction would be concern. Yes, it’s normal for the procedure and the circumstances. But no one has to like it! I know you’ll forgive me for my “you poor thing”. LOL Geeze, sir….I’ll hope for that to pass quickly and for the healing to happen in quick order.

    I’m pleased at the outcome of the procedure. Hugely grateful! Bit demanding of me to want nice laundry, huh? LOL
    (((((((((( Bill ))))))))))))

    You just take what you need to heal. And I’ll hope for some sunshine to find you…..and the abundance of spring. (has to be finding SOMEone–it’s snowing as I type! LOL)
