On February 11, I brought my husband to the ER for symptoms of abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. They found a blood clot in the portal vein, one of the major veins of his liver. He was admitted to the hospital that evening and over the next several days, they ran tests and procedures and were still unable to find the cause of the blood clot. He was discharged from the hospital the afternoon of February 17. That evening, he started having severe abdominal pain along with more vomiting and I took him back to the ER. The morning of February 18, his body went into shock. He was placed on a ventilator and rushed to the intensive care unit.  The blood clot in the portal vein had extended into the mesenteric areas and was rushed to the Operating Room and ended up having 3 1/2 feet of small intestine taken out.  They soon found out that he also had a brain hemorrhage and underwent neurosurgery for 9 hours that same afternoon.
