DID YOU KNOW?
Doctors use anticoagulants, also known as blood thinners, to treat blood clots. Unlike the name suggests, these medications do not actually thin the blood, but slow the time it takes for blood to clot. They help to prevent clots from growing larger, and to prevent new clots from forming in most patients.
Blood clots can be safely treated!!!
** I’m not prescribing for anyone so please consult before taking anything to prevent medication clashes.
On Friday night when the incident occurred, mom was snoring in a deep sleep & dad is not home, luckily i had the phone in 1 hand & managed to send a shout out to my sister who called my brother & rushed to aid. He could not find moms fresh ginger so my sister told him to look for powder in the grocery cupboard. Thankfully he knew what it looks like & found it!!
Lol 😂 threw almost a 1/4 of the bottle in half a mug, it tasted horribly yuck, but when you’re in a desperate, dire situation of hanging between life & death… anything goes down, no fuss, what.
Whilst sipping, the pain intensified..
“Working to kill this threat
The pain duplicates death.”
But I guess that was the effect of the ginger working it’s way through by penetrating & dissolving the suspected clot. After the intensity passed, moderate pain lingered.. Then slowly cleared away on condition of no shuffling..
By around 1/2 pm Saturday I could move comfortably without feeling that lung portion blocked.
But severe breathlessness & exhaustion followed..
Mother earth definitely has life saving properties & why should it not?
(A chapter will be also dedicated to prophetical medicine.)
Confinement to a bed or wheelchair for long periods of time due to a hospital stay, injury, or illness increases blood clot risk.
Blood clots are the the leading cause of preventable hospital deaths in the US. Make sure all of your doctors know about your risk for blood clots & ask for a prevention plan.
Once you return home from the hospital, take all of your medications as prescribed & get up to move around. If confined to a bed or wheelchair, ask someone to help move your arms & legs.
Always search for information & help. I would not have known how important this aspect is, for me being confined with movements, had I not taken a look on sites to equip myself with necessary tools.
Sincerest gratitude to all the people striving to help others better their lives & improve patient treatment.

I stretched my hands to doctors for assistance?
Nothing obtained, apart from deafening silence!
In a sphere of “supposed” darkness,
Thoughts that cause restlessness
Will gradually evanasce
By placing total reliance
& engaging in remembrance
With 1 who afflicts illnesses.
When a swell appears
Or betrayal from peers
Streams defeated tears,
The devil’s whispers of fear
Moves into reverse gear,
Echoing in my ears
“It is all I hear”.
The “aaah” of pain
Coincides with the end of an imperial, tranquil name,
Perfusing through veins
Playing again & again.
When the sky rains
The mind he trains
To keep sane
Eminence that remains
Before my sight
Empowers this fight
Elevates spirit height
After each crashed flight.
Oh my lord, indeed
I am a destitute in need
Of whatever good
You allow to descend.
