Chemo Complications

Carla has had swelling in her ankles for over two weeks.  She was very careful on our flights to St. Kitts/Nevis to get up periodically and walk as well as exercise her feet.  Anyway, yesterday was her day to get her blood tests and the Velcade IV.  The nurse saw the swollen right ankle and reported it to her doctor.  We had to go back this morning for the ultrasound and it was positive for a blood clot.  She was immediately admitted to Cox Hospital for Heparin IV.  They plan to keep her at least two days to hopefully dissolve the clot. 

It is hard for her to be inside on such a nice day and she feels fine except for the swelling.
