Cindy Lou's site is:
|This is the sign that greets me every few weeks.|
I happen to know it greets about 120 other people each day.
Sometimes more, and this isn't the only
Anticoagulant Clinic here in Boise.
|This little machine is amazing!|
The Pharmacist just draws a little blood and
inserts it into this tiny machine and within
minutes we know my INR.
|Here we go!|
|The machine is showing my INR at 3.4. That is above my range but down from two weeks ago. My range should be 2.5 to 3.00.|
I take 7.5 MG of Warfarin per day, except for one day, which I half the tablet. We are still working with my diet and this dosage.
My diet limits me in some of our most nutritous foods, such as greens etc., etc.
But consistency is very important.
An INR means International Normalized Ratio which measures the time for blood to clot and compares it to an average.
|This sweet Pharmacist is writing out my dosage, again, until|
we can get into range of my INR.
My INR was determined after my Pulmonary Embolism.
Each person has a different range accordingly.
|A 25 minute walk can not only give you|
a bit of exercise but can be
a great "experience"!
Very fulfilling in many ways!
|Caught this little critter, in this beautiful tree one minute into my walk!|
|Heard the "Fire Alarm", brought back memories of School, as I watched all|
the kids file out!
| This is the pedestrian bridge crossing Overland|
between Curtis and Cole!
A safe passage for children and all the rest of us!
|Walking along, and of course a Fire Truck is always impressive!|
So took a picture!
|Whoops, they over shot! Must of turned a U-Turn....|
Wait! ... Is it the Elementry School I just passed!
|Oh .... Another Truck on the way!|
|As I return to investigate, I have to pause and take a|
picture of our beautiful snow covered mountains ... Shame on me!
|Switching gears here!|
Walked down the bridge and met up with an elderly
woman who was out walking her dog.
We both exchanged concerns of what was going on!
This is the dog she was out walking.
|This beautiful dog looked familar to me!|
YES, this dog is a Norwegian Elk Hound..
10 months old, and just graduated from school with
a first place ribbon, in the category of "stay"!
Now, I must add that my Son-In-Law and daughter
have a Norwegian Elk Hound similar in age!
Going through school as I write!
|His name is "Chisem"|
|Okay back to the crisis|
at Grace Jordan Elementry School!
|Kids are now being led from their safe spot ( A Church parking lot behind school) back to school!|
So all is well!
|These little Tulips are peeking their heads|
up in our own yard! (Oh yes, and a weed to boot!).
|Mark's little Garlic Field!|
| All 30 Rose Plants, that Mark tends|
to every year! Starting to bloom.
|Okay, that is what I saw on my walk today.|
The two Lou's begin....
Here we are, a couple of not so famous road warriors, embracing life and enjoying the journey along the way. We hope you'll tag along as we dream, plan, scheme, hunt for treasure at thrift stores, yard sales, consignment shops. Decorate our homes, work on our projects, shop for Antiques, plant our gardens, nurture our families, cook together, entertain, discover new and delightful shops and haunts, take photos of the beauty all around us, share our ideas and our diamonds in the rough....and so much more.
Join us! After all,
it's so much friendlier
with a few!
