Back in the hospital

Phil was admitted to Franciscan Physician's Hospital this afternoon Friday September 10, 2010 with a blood clot in his upper arm. It probably came from the PICC line he had in for his IV antibiotic. The doctors disagree about how long he will be there - one says until Wed. and possibly even Friday, the other says he'll be out Monday. I tend to think Wed. is probably what we are looking at.

He's on a heparin IV right now and then they will release him on coumadin. If all goes well, it's not serious. If the clot breaks loose then it could be serious since it is so close to his lung.
