I was very happy to find this site! After experiencing a massive bi-lateral pulmonary emboli in 2014 that came "out of nowhere" it was discovered (through three separate extensive blood tests) that I have APS. I had a DVT after back surgery in 2001 and was in the hospital for three days. It was not until my PE that I was tested for APS. I started taking Xarelto, but there is no antidote as yet to control unexpected or accidental blood loss. My hematologist suggested that I start taking warfarin because there is an effective antidote. I have my INR checked regularly and have done well keeping it in line. I love greens and never knew how much I was supposed to take and was never told much about greens. I am very happy to have found this site that tells me how much I need to have...and being able to track it is WONDERFUL! The only downside of being on warfarin is that you have to be careful about how much vitamin K you have each week...but I know that things will be a lot easier now that I will now know the levels in the greens I do eat!! Thank you so much for this tracker (of many things)!!!
