Sound advice

I went to see the doc last Wednesday. That afternoon, I had blood taken for testing. Thursday, the doctor's office called and said the doctor wanted to actually speak to me. Usually the nurse just tells me the INR and what new dosage to take. Instead, the doc said that my INR was too high (3.7). So, he told me my new dosage, and also said:

"And if you notice any blood in your urine, go to the emergency room right away."

Thanks, doc. I dont think I would have thought to do that otherwise. Because, you know, I piss red as a general rule.

You know as well as I do, that if you saw blood, you'd just ignore it.

Grady:

And then probally go drink a beer...

Zero:

It actually comes out orange if there's blood in your urine. Red + Yellow = orange

Right. But if you are properly hydrated, it's going to normally be more clear. Drink logs of non-water and it will be vibrant yellow. Fortunately, ive been drinking a lot more water, so I suspect it would actually be pink if it was issue.
