"OK...just a little pin prick..."

Lovenox was not what was referenced by the lyric snippet from Pink Floyd's "Comfortably Numb". Lucy survived my first injection attempt and I still have my nine fingers. We found some advice on the Lovenox web site along with a handy PDF to assist with the injections. We'll be glad when Tuesday gets here. She gets reduced to once per day starting Wednesday.

Lucy has her appointments scheduled for the next three weeks. I think the phone got a workout today.
Lucy's left leg looks better than yesterday. The erythema is smaller and a bit less red. Her right leg is back to normal except for some flaking skin. We took measurements of both calves so we have a reference point as was suggested by Dr. Thurmes. I'll be taking twice daily measurements until her leg gets better.

Lucy's dad had minor surgery this afternoon. His surgery got bumped for an emergency, so it started at 3:00 instead of 11:00. Lucy had a Neulasta shot appointment at 4:30 so we couldn't make it to the hospital tonight. She remembered how out of it she was when coming out of general anesthesia, and how it was nice that people cared, but she would rather have had some time to get reoriented and rest up. We're going to visit him tomorrow. It sounds like he might be getting released tomorrow late afternoon.

It was a very nice day outside today. We hope you had a chance to enjoy it.
