Update 7/6

Update 7/6: So the Dr. finally showed up and listened to Alan's lungs, he indicated everything looks good, and Alan may get to go home Thurs, however for that to happen the IV blood thinner must be discontinued and he must transition to an oral blood thinner and the medication must be at the proper level to effectively work, this will be monitored with blood tests. We are a little more relaxed now.

DISCLAIMER: Suitability of any roads or trails mentioned in my ride reports are given from the view point of me and my wife (two old grandparents of moderate riding ability) and may or may not be applicable to your personal situation. Be mature, ride within your own abilities.

Sorry to hear your Beemer bit you! Glad it wasn't worse and that you were able to get help in a timely fashion. Keep your tips up and heal fast!
I'll be pulling for you and patiently waiting for another stellar ride report from you guys. Katy make sure he behaves himself and fully heals up. That is the voice of experience speaking. Monkeywife has to use a pretty big club sometimes to get me to listen.

Excellent news!

The laboratory technologist in me must give you a recommendation. Warfarin therapy is highly dependant on a patient's vitamin K intake. It doesn't mean that you can't eat things high in vitamin K, it just means that you have to be VERY consistent with your diet. When a patient's protimes bounce around a lot, it's usually due to their diet. If Alan is consistent with his diet, his warfarin dose will not have to be adjusted as much. Remember, it IS rat poison after all, and you don't want to mess with that.

So, Steep finds out that poison is actually good for him? Sounds about right.

Here's another who's been watching and offering thoughts and prayers. Those titanium rods aren't so bad. Much better than weeks in traction. Take care, both of you!

No problem on the coming back. Having been in Alan's situation I understood oh to well... (there's just not a smiley that seems to fit here)
Here's hoping the get the blood thinner dialed in quickly and he can make his escape soon. I second OMB's advice, once you escape from the institution boredom sets in quickly and you want to do more than you should. Slow down, take it easy and remember your brain may say your still 25 and spring back quickly but the body may say otherwise.

NO truer statement; that's what happend to me. So follow the advice of "taking it Easy" and heal.

We'll be checking this out on the internet, thanks for the insight!

You'll also want to get a genetic test done for variations in CYP2C9 and VKORC1. About 30% of the population has a mutation that makes them either very rapid metabolizers of coumadin, so the drug never reaches effective levels, or slow metabolizers, so the drug builds up to toxic levels in the body. Most insurance programs will cover such a test now.
