Roller Coaster Ride

I feel like I'm riding a roller coaster lately.  And this ride is not a pleasant one when it goes into those downhill slopes. You might recall that I mentioned on my blog this past spring that I had surgery to remove a lump from a salivary gland...which turned out benign, thank goodness.  Well the latest discovery on my roller coaster ride is that I have a blood clot in my right arm. Oh!

On Friday I awoke to an achy arm, I thought perhaps I had slept on it funny or something. Then later I noticed it was swollen and slightly darker than the left arm. Well I made an appointment and after an exam and an ultrasound it was discovered I have a blood clot. I have no clue why.

I am seeing a hematologist this afternoon and I hope to learn more. Oh, and I've been put on blood thinning medication.

It's been a somewhat nonproductive few days since it's been difficult to work with my arm this way. I hope it doesn't last too much longer and I can get back to creating. I have several things I want and need to be working on. The photos above are some of the things waiting for me to return to.
