Bloody Mess!

The big toe on my right foot was really itching bad as I started getting ready for bed.  Made the mistake of reaching down to scratch it.  A hangnail got caught in the process and ripped off.  Blood started gushing out of my toe!

I have a disease known as multiple sclerosis.  My neurologist has me on a medicine called Tysabri to help me keep a minimal level of coordination.  That was not what caused the blood gush, the Heparin they use to close of my port to my veins is a blood thinner.  Seems now when I get a sever injury (ripped hang nail) blood sprays everywhere.   The blood loss left me feeling extremely drained when it happened last night, so I just made sure my foot was elevated as I slept.

Had to clean up the blood trail on the bedroom door and the floor both after getting up this morning. Toe is still throbbing, but at least when I took my shower this morning there was absolutely no blood loss!  Good thing is I am not grossed out by the sight of blood or it would have been even worse of a disaster.

Please help fight my disease

The medicine my neurologist has me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri.  Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is impossible.  I remember when I first started on it , the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500.  There was no way my husband and I could afford that every 28 days!  Biogen (manufacturing drug company) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely.  So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.  To contribute to the fund, click on the following link: https://www.gofundme.com/zfabhdes

All help will be greatly appreciated.   Thank you for your generosity!
