one thing after another

So Elise has developed blood clots in her leg, the condition is called dvt or deep vein thrombosis, it happens in patients that don't have much movement or don't move around a lot.
They are giving her blood thinners for tonight and then putting in a "filter" in a main artery to prevent any clots that break loose from traveling to the lungs.
The medications they will give her will prolong her stay in the hospital, so the discharge date will be scratched for another.
Suanne is doing a lot of work on procuring a vehicle that will work for transporting Elise.
