Blood thinners.....

   Well Carter had to stop his coumadin on Friday. Unfortunately he was started on lovenox injections. He gets 2 shots a day for 2 days. Lets just say the first one didn't go over so well. I tried holding him while Matt gave the injection. He is one strong little boy. 20 minutes later and Carter finally had his medicine. There is a possibility that after Carter's surgery he will not require blood thinners!!! It depends on whether they use a cadaver valve a another mechanical valve. We total left that decision up to the surgeon. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if he came home Coumadin free.  Ya.....that would be wonderful!!!
