On Saturday night, I noticed that my left arm, the one with an IV line, was swollen. Being prudent, Edith and I went to the ER. Since I had no pain, no one thought it was a big deal…but it was. Turns out that I have a very small blood clot. While this sounds bad, it’s actually a blessing in disguise. The doctors are giving me a new IV line and pulling out the old one, they’re now doing imaging and procedures that were originally scheduled to happen in the coming weeks, and they’re moving me along very quickly to finally resolve my pancreatitis.
