Im totally freaking out about a possible DVT. I have compression socks on to control this calf swelling and i have a dr. appt at 3pm to get a referral for an ultrasound. Dave freaked me out big time, but I have a lot of symptoms: swelling, pain (especially when i dorsiflex the foot), and it feels slightly warmer at the center of the pain.

better safe than sorry.

the swelling goes down at night, but its back a little as of 12:30 pm and I expect it would be just as bad as last night if i ignored it. It just a guess. but why would it keep coming back? airplane swelling is supposed to take a day or 2 to go down, but not come back..i think..or...i dunno.

im just scared. and scared that now ill have swelly legs for the rest of my life. being a certified lymphedema therapist, i am fully aware that there is no treatment except compression for these things. and its a pain in the ass...

in the meantime, Dave is ON me about getting his computer back. here i am freaking out and he's telling me he has NO time to meet me between now and Sunday for 3 seconds to hand over his computer. "ship it to me" he says. WTF? in what? what box? when? on Saturday? UPS ground? i mean...
he's all in a hurry, so why not meet me in the city real quick like this weekend? "in busy" he says. i think he's just taking out the break up on me. and its annoying.

and im still scared about my legs. i cant think about his damn computer right now. sob.

Dave should either go get it or arrange for a messenger to pick it up. Maybe you are just retaining some water and need a diuretic? What did the Dr. say?
