I can just see those rat mummies, with their little tiny bottles of green VitK pills to hand around to the ratlings, and the old rat waving a bottle of VitK Fortified Broccoli Beer... "HIC.... darlin' it's for the Warfarin, that's all...."

Glad your home too.

I hope you recover well, and avoid vit K because it reverses the effects of warfarin.

This was discovered by rat catchers, when it turned out it wasn't doing the job, and it turned out the ratsgot smart and found a way of curing themselves against warfarin. Mice were a bit slower on the uptake however.

This could of course be urban legend bandied around by the rat catchers, but the basis works - vit K is to be avoided.

Glad you're on the mend Laurel.

yes i may need to lay in a supply of styptic pencil...
and similar....

and here is your trivia question for the day..
where does WARFARIN get it's name?
answer:















Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (W.A.R.F.)

The Discovery of Warfarin
One snowy morning in February, 1933, Ed Carlson, a farmer from Deer Park, Wisconsin, came into Karl Paul Link's laboratory carrying a milk-can full of blood that refused to coagulate. Outside he had a small heap of spoiled sweet clover hay and a dead heifer freezing in the back of his truck.

Studies on the factor in spoiled sweet clover hay that killed cattle by hemorrhaging were already well underway on the UW-Madison campus in 1933. R.A. Brink and W.K. Smith in the genetics department had been trying to breed a strain of clover free of the factor's precursor for several years, and efforts to isolate it were underway in Link's laboratory. But Link was an emotional man and, for him, the story of Warfarin really began with Ed Carlson's visit.


The first paper describing the concentration of the hemorrhagic factor appeared in the October, 1940, issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry. "It was a modest paper," Link recalled. "My rule is, never overstate your case in print. It's better to understate it and let the facts speak for themselves."

In successive papers the facts did so eloquently. In 1941, Link and Harold Campbell reported the isolation of dicumarol, the first of the oral anticoagulants now widely used in surgery and the treatment of circulatory disorders. At the same time, Link was becoming convinced that the anticoagulants being isolated and synthesized in this laboratory might also be useful as rodenticides.

"From the beginning," he said, "I had an intuitive feeling that this might be a good thing. A pretty bad thing for rats, but a good thing for humans. But the idea didn't come overnight. It came into my head and the heads of everyone in the lab over a period of years."

Again, the accumulating facts spoke for themselves, and in 1948 Link came to WARF's director Ward Ross with the suggestion that the foundation patent, as a rodenticide, the coumarin derivative he later named Warfarin.

Why did Link turn over his patents to WARF?

"Well, they couldn't have been developed without the foundation," he said. "I couldn't have done it myself and I never thought of trying."

"And I'm a loyal Wisconsin man," he added. "After all, I went to school here. I came in as a freshman in 1917 and I got all my degrees here. In a broad sense, I wanted to do something for the university."

-- From WARF: Fifty Years, edited by William R. Jordan, III

Whoo-Hoo! Glad to hear you are HOME. Isn't that a wonderful feeling?! There's a great product to have on hand when taking coumadin (yes, Bee, same thing as warfarin/rat poison:-). It's a spray-on powder which stops bleeding almost immediately. Here's a LINK, so you know what to look for. I think most drugstores sell it.

Take care,

Sorry to hear you're ill, but recuperating nicely by the sound of it. It must be a pretty good hospital to recognize a pulmonary embolism so quickly. You are very lucky. You've also gotten very good advice in this thread. I'm sure you can request to talk to the dieticians before you leave the hospital for guidelines as well as your pharmacist and doctors about interactions and foods. Write down any questions you might have as they arise or you may forget them. Realize you may bleed easier so avoid risky behavior, too. No vigorous teeth brushing, etc. Don't worry, though, you'll adjust. You are very lucky! Best wishes.

Hello Laurel, and I'm sorry to hear about this. The PE must have been frightening.

So this nurse gets off work and goes to the bank to deposit her paycheque. When she needs to sign it, she reaches into her purse, and pulls out a thermometer. "Oh no" she says... "some asshole's got my pen!"

Problem is, hospitals are no place to be when you're sick - t0o much noise and dreadfull food most of the time.
