    oh man, the circus and the red tent with very thin blood. Hoping they can lower the dose today, luckily the dosage seems to have a pretty quick response.

    Aren't you back yet?

    Yes. I uh...spent some time with my husband before he went to work.

    Okay. So my clotting level was perfect. Supposed to be between 2 and 3. I was 2.4 Nice to know I am still stable on this program. Sadly, no chance of lowering my dosage. Just for reference, most heart patients can reach the magic 2-4 range with under 5 mg of coumadin. I am on 14mg.

    I described my symptoms to the nurse. She felt that it was anemia caused by my period. The recommendation is to supplement iron from a few days to a week before my due date and throughout the "circus". Good thing I am pretty regular.

    I hope this is the answer and not that my body can't handle lchf or that my adrenal fatigue is flaring.

    Thanks for the concern everyone.

    Paula, I was like this when the Russian Circus was horribly wrong for me AKA pre ablation. I would feel like I would pass out but I never took iron. What I did was to eat more red meat and added liver a few days before the circus stared and during. It really helped. Maybe a good fatty roast or a steak would help too?

    yeah, for a frolic in the hay! Well I guess it is good to know your blood is stable. Couldn't the nurse have done a finger prick iron test while you were there? ah well, you have an excuse to take a nap!

    No, it had to be a full on test. I took a double dose of iron (56mg) about 1pm. The extreme lethargy has lifted and the breathlessness is better. This I can live with.

    The preliminary estimate on the car damage is $2600. I bring it in on the 7th and it should be done by the 14th.

    Bah, cars are so expensive . But I'm glad you are feeling better and the repair time is not too long. And that you can drive it safely even with the damage! Lots of pluses .
