Subject: RE: BS: Curmudgeon: One Thing After Another
The second site below gives a good overview but the first goes into excelleent depth.......Neither are a "good read." From what I can tell, if it was in fact central artey occlusion it would seem that the damage is done within the first two hours (or thereabouts). None of it sounds good Linn and to me it would warrant more than a damn post-it with something else happening later! (I'm with Rap.....Kill the Doc).......I'm sure you can find lots of sites but they all say pretty much the same thing.....sorry to say.

Tom has the porcine valve so he's not on warfarin is he? I'd forgotten that at first and I kept wondering how he got a clot. I don't know what you do next but I'm pretty convinced that "nothing til next week" ain't a good option even if the damage is done.
