Hi everyone! I have a question on something I haven't seen anybody mention. In my wallet, I carry a card all about my St. Judes aortic valve and another for the coumadin. However, my doctor suggested I get some sort of ID to wear--like a bracelet, necklace, etc. I looked up several Medic Alert type sites and the jewelry is either cheap (ie turn your wrist green) or very expensive. It is also rather ugly. I found a really nice medium priced gold ID bracelet that could have "coumadin" engraved. Does anyone out there wear "alert" jewelry of some kind? Any thoughts on what may be the best type? This may sound like a small kind of question, but my doctor (after 2-1/2 years with the new valve) really made me nervous about being careful with injuries, etc. Just wondering what others do. Thanks! Susan:cool:
