Hematologist's report

The doctor concurs that I do have a clotting issue that is not hereditary, and it has to do with the possibility of deep vein thrombosis or arterial thrombosis, being genuine threats to me.
Although, there is controversy over the blood filter she also agreed that for sixty days that it would be safe, and so it will be installed when originally scheduled.
As far as my liver enzymes go I forgot to ask her, the hematologist, but the bariatric doctor had said if he felt it was necessary he would do the liver biopsy while in there (me).
The high end of the liver enzyme scale was 32 and mine was 49 that is the alt (sgpt) too high, meaning my liver or kidneys are involved.
I will also be on shots for anti-coagulates for about a month, starting in the hospital and home after, self given premeasured injections.
The blood test that was taken could be a false positive, and it must be repeated twelve weeks after the first, which was August 22, so next month I will have the same tests again.
Meanwhile, all that is being done is right according to what needs to be done as per the four of the doctors..., vascular surgeon, general surgeon, bariatric surgeon and the hematologist, that I had seen for pre-op testing.

After we left there we went to a new restaurant at Fisherman's Village called Scotty's Brewhouse, originating out of Indiana where there are many more, it has a very industrial d├ęcor.
Hubby had a bacon cheese burger with a side of macaroni and cheese, and I had their black and bleu salad, steak, bacon, avocado, romaine, cherry tomatoes, bleu cheese with bleu cheese dressing, a high protein low carb meal! Not dissimilar to Atkins.
We both had iced water with lemons.
The prices were average.
The food was good and I brought a bit of mine home.

Afterwards we were going to look around, but although it is a covered location a freak unexpected storm was ominously threatening, so we headed towards our car and made it back just before the rain got too heavy, and we were safely inside the car for the drive home!
Good thing we had the umbrellas as well as my poncho in the car, so we were dry entering the house.

Inclosing on this updated note allow me to be the very first to wish all of you a very happy good night and ask you all to kindly count all of your blessings and share all of your overages with you know whom and we will too!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
