Good afternoon folks, today is Saturday and I am a day late posting my “How I Feel Today” post. But I am sure you don’t mind. Today’s post is going to be extremely brief, because I feel FINE. I am a solid 3 – 3.25, I had an appointment with Doc Lungs early in the week, and he said I sounded pretty good (but he is tone-deaf), and that he said he didn’t need to see me for 6 (count them) whole weeks.
My INR is now therapeutic, it being 2.2 this week, and that been two tests in a row where it has been in the therapeutic range between 2 and 3. Dosage of my cumidin is settled, and I will not be re-checked for 2 weeks from my last test. Should I continue to be therapeutic, I will be moved to a once a month test.

Well folks I hope the rest of your weekend is pleasant. Thank you for your continued good thoughts and kind words. As always your comments are encouraged and welcomed. – Bill
