That was the headline of an AP article in Monday’s Kansas City Star–all about deep vein thrombosis and the US Surgeon General’s campaign to bring more public awareness to a medical problem that kills more than 100,000 Americans a year. That’s what unexpectedly landed me in the hospital for four days last week.
I am thankful to God for the way He arranged circumstances to get me to the Emergency Room when I thought I could tough it out, and for great medical care, and the development of drugs that got me back on my feet in a hurry. I’m thankful for God’s protection and sustaining power that kept pieces of a “massive” clot from breaking off and moving to my lungs while this thing was growing for probably a month. I’m thankful for friends and family who cared and prayed and were there for me.
This article is really worth reading. And it might help save your life some day.
