Blogging Interrupted Again: In the Hospital For a Week

Originally Published December 16, 2010.

Well, I started back to blogging after my bronchitis and setup my posts for most of last week.

Then, my leg started hurting.  I really thought it was muscle cramps!  I called the doctor thinking he could give me some muscle relaxers to stop the pain.

But, he had me come in to see him.  Then, sent me for a Doppler screening.  I had a blood clot in my right leg.  I was admitted to Springdale Hospital and spent most of last week there getting blood thinners.

This week, I have been recuperating so no blogging.  However, I hope to get back to my regular blogging schedule this weekend.
