Blood tests

Had to get up this morning and try to shower, ouch...ugh....oh lord it hurts to move. I drove myself into the hospital for blood work today. It was difficult to do, more so than I thought it would be. Reaction time is slower than normal, but I have to get some independance back.

The Admitting Dept told me that I am set up to come in on Mondays and Wednesdays for tests and that I will have extra blood and a urine test done once a month. It seems that the methotrexate will damage my liver,,, go figure... something else to worry about!

Blood is up to 3.5 so Dr. called and she is reducing my warfarin to 8mg day. She said its comon to fluxuate for the first few months.
