A surprise blood-test result

Asmaa attended her fortnightly appointment to check her INR level in her blood at Sheba Medical Center. She is well-acquainted with the system and led the way to the department.

The test today unexpectedly showed that her level was extremely high above the acceptable range. Thankfully, she has been feeling very well and has had no unusual new symptoms, no bleeding, The doctor advised that we return tomorrow morning without taking her medication in order to do a follow-up test, and  to try and get her level back to normal.

Beautiful Asmaa was happy as ever, and very pleased to receive a big tube of bubbles. It was a pleasant time all together, and we empathized with each other about not being able to see our families for a long time.

Hopefully, Asmaa’s INR level will be brought back to normal soon.
