O boy is enjoying being back at school. Today is the first day that he went for the full day. Energy seemed fine, and he seemed engaged. A friend of his gave him a big hug at lunch and said she'd missed him so much. He got a silly grin on his face and turned bright red. I was amused!
Last Friday we took him in for an INR check - see how the blood thinners are working. We've been doing that at a local clinic, that isn't part of our insurance, that does it by finger stick instead of a full blood draw - don't need to torture him more than necessary! The result came back at 3.0, which is on the high end of the desired range. After some disagreement, the docs decided it was fine. We decided to feed him some kale (which we would've done anyway, but we did note the Vit K in kale limits the effectiveness of the blood thinners).
Next appt is Friday, we'll see what the doc says. We're supposed to decide the next phase of activity restrictions at the appointment, as the surgery recovery limitations will be going away, and we'll need to more thoroughly consider limitations (or lack thereof) due to blood thinners.
