I am seriously struggling to hold back the panic right now! **UPDATED**

My daughter had an appointment with our family doctor this morning.  She is pretty sure that she has a blood clot in her lung and she has an appointment at the hospital in an hour for testing. 

Let's put this in perspective.  I live in Canada, if she gets a hospital appointment the same day, it's serious!

We are home from the hospital now.   Good news, NO BLOOD CLOTS!

This last week has been hell and it is all because of Yaz!  My daughter suffers from clinical depression.  Last year she took an overdose of sleeping pills but the last several months she has been doing really well.   She has been happy and her mental state has been stable but last week she crashed.  She was taken from work by ambulance to the hospital.  It turns out that Yaz should never be given to someone with a history of depression.  It is also the reason for the blood clot alarm.

My daughter is back on her meds and off the Yaz and is doing much better but I think I'm going to have a few more gray hairs in the morning.
