Hi Laurie,

I'm glad they worked out what is wrong with you. Have you started treatment for both conditions yet?

All the best with the testing of your children. I imagine that must be a major stress for you:(

Feel free to keep posting here:p

Hi, and glad you were able to get answers......or at least on the way to them.

Deb....it means that the blood clots faster or above the rate desirable. A side of this would be to get clots in the brain causing strokes, or in the lungs forming an embolism, in the heart it could cause heart attacks... This can be hereditary, usually seen where a high % of members had strokes or heart attacks. A good reason to understand the family history.
