Blood Clot

One of our neighbors  goes on a road trip every year.  Last year, they drove all the way to Wyoming and that is so far.  He ended up  staying at the hospital  on their way home because he had a blood clot.   I believe it was a  deep vein thrombosis ,  a blood clot in the leg.  He told us that it was the most expensive trip that they did because  his hospital bill cost over a hundred thousands.  Luckily, he has a good insurance and only paid like 8 thousand.  Still  expensive, if you ask me but  when it's a matter of life and death, you would do whatever you can to get better.

The doctor told him that it could have led to pulmonary embolism if he did not check in right away.  I am glad that  he  listen to his guts and went to the hospital.  He said that he knew something was wrong because his  right leg  swelled up and he was hurting.  I think, God  was watching over him that day!
