I live in the US, and will be travelling to Europe in one week--We are flying to London and then cruising around the British Channel Islands and making stops each day in Ireland, Scotland, and LeHavre. I am a little nervous (no, probably a lot nervous) because the trip is two weeks on the ship and I self test my INR weekly. A little fear if my numbers are out of range, and I am far away. This is the first time I will be out of the country since my diagnosis last year of APS and Factor V Leiden, and my Warfarin therapy .
I would just like to relate how nice the nurse practitioner in my hematologist's office is going to accommodate me. Because it is going to be almost impossible to phone in my results from Europe to the US from the ship, she gave me her private email address and said if my numbers are not good, I should email her and she would discuss with the doctor and email instructions back to me if they have to adjust my warfarin. If numbers are good, just continue on same dosage and don't send results to her.
This is going to ease a lot of tension for me and I could travel with a "clear mind".
There are some really very nice people in this world!!!
