Close...

...but no cigar.


For some completely unknown reason my blood is still 1.7 after a week of injecting Fragmin and taking 10mg of warfarin.


So Friday evening I had to take 12mg of warfarin and I'm back at the clinic at 12.10pm today (Saturday).


I don't want any more rat poison in me :(


I'm tired of asking people to keep their fingers crossed for me. But would you mind? Would you? Just keep your fingers crossed that the reading tomorrow starts with a 2. Ok?


Thanks.


Apologies for the crap picture I quickly grabbed a snap of it when the nurse went out to consult someone about how far my dose of warfarin should be increased. I wasn't sure if I should be taking pictures or not and didn't really want to ask her if I could take a photo and then have to explain that it was to make a blog post about how my INR hadn't increased more interesting...yeah...way too complicated. Always better to sneak a photo instead.

I've been having my fingers crossed for days.

The next time you sneak a photo of that INR machine, I want to be seeing a 2.

I am keeping most convenient things crossed for you. I'm sure it'll up to the 2s next time.

I'm also wishing I was in the meeting where they named the CoaguChek XS Plus. Love that missing 'c' in check guys!
