Wasn’t sure where to put this.....long story short, I tripped on a pothole while carrying my small dog on Sunday night. My dog is fine but I banged up both elbows, both knees and my hand (I think I cradled my dog so didn’t use my hands to break my fall). Nothing broken, just badly bruised. My one elbow was totally swollen like a giant egg was on it...swelling has gone way down, but my bruise is growing. I “google doc”ed and learned there is a sac near your elbow that can swell due to trauma. Pretty sure that this extensive bruising is normal due to Coumadin and aspirin I’m on, but it sure does look gross. It doesn’t hurt. It was just contained to my elbow yesterday, but this is what it looks like tonight. Gotta love Coumadin. My coumadin clinic called today about my inr results last week...I mentioned the fall in passing but I suppose I should have asked if it was okay. I know my bruises will turn all sorts of lovely colors over the next few weeks. I had surgery four years ago and have had the usual small bruises from the open dishwasher and my desk corner, but this is the worst. You can’t really tell from the picture, but it’s over half the length of my arm.
