Watching Closely

Carlos is feeling better, perkier this morning.  He no longer has to lie flat on his back (had to lie flat without moving for 6 hours after yesterday's procedure).  His hemoglobin was up to 8.8 and his INR was 1.9.  They plan to start him back on a low dose of coumadin to try and get him therapuetic once they confirm, he is no longer bleeding.  He did have bleeding this morning but he also hadn't been to the bathroom since yesterday before all the procedures so they expect there will be some blood that needs to come out.  They will be rechecking his hemoglobin in a bit.  Hopefully it will hold steady.  If it drops, then there is a possibility that he is still bleeding.  S o we all get to wait and watch.  He's staying in the ICU until tomorrow at least.
