Well I guess 7.5/day of coumadin is enough to drag me down to 1.4 on my INR lol. Been especially tired since doing that. Not sure if it's fatigue, as my impetus to do things is there, unlike fatigue days, just tired is all. Maybe it's because I so despise napping.
Since my follow up is on Monday there's no sense in doing another INR so will just pop it back up to 10/day in the interim and roll the dice. My thinking is that there's a certain lag here, it takes the body a few days to adjust either up or down from thinner to thicker or vice versa. Am feeling better today than the past few days. All this short term stuff up and down bad/good is just that, short term, so not getting overly excited either way.
My friend volunteered most graciously to accompany me up there again, another gracious friend is paying for the room for us. I even wrote Dr. D to see if it was 50/50 coin flip, or leaning towards the "no further intervention needed" side, so as not to drag said friend up to Palo Alto for nothing. He (of course) iterated to err on the side of caution. Well, we have fun traveling together so it's going to be great! My friend said," You don't need to ask, I've already made the decision I am coming". It's tough to ask someone to impart days worth of free time so that was a relief.
And the schedule is soooo much easier, overnight Sunday, Monday blood draw at leisure, afternoon MRI/MRV, consult afterwards, marching band parade at 4:30, culminating with the papal blessing at 5ish. Like anything else, it's easy when you know what you're doing!
