Clyde Hospital Update

Dr. Williams called tonight. Clyde has a small vein in his back by his left kidney that is bleeding. For some reason, people on cumiden or any blood thinners can get into this problem, and they don't know why. It is also very hard to detect. It's a minor procedure to correct the problem. They are stopping all the thinners, and tomorrow are putting a tube down his throat into his abdomin with a filter or an umbrella on it. This will stop any clots which might form from going through his heart and loudging into his lung, and will stay permanently. It's really a filter but Dr Williams said an umbrella, because if a clot does form the blood will still get through to the heart. As a precautionery measure, is calling in an orthopedic doctor to look at the hip. And you guys know me. Just had to start up with the bacterial infection again today.
