Tennis star, Serena Williams is recovering from what she calls:
“The scariest moment in my life” she said in a recent interview.
“Every day is better and better,” “I’m just working on trying to make sure I can keep my energy up. I’m not doing much. I haven’t really left the house much recently. … I still have several clots in my lung and they’re just there. They have to eventually dissolve, so I’m just taking it one day at a time.”
Williams, 29, has not played tennis since cutting her foot shortly after winning Wimbledon last July and undergoing two operations. She cleared up questions about just what happened to her recently. “I had a lot of swelling in my leg, which really is a telltale sign of an embolism and I could not breathe. I remember thinking, ‘I’m walking, but I can’t breathe.’ That’s when my physio forced me to go to the emergency room so I went and got the CAT scan and that’s when they found several blood clots and I was, like, wow. They told me that they had to check me in immediately,”
“… I’m on blood-thinner injections. I inject myself twice a day and I developed a large hematoma in my stomach. What started out as like a golf ball ended up being the size of a grapefruit on my stomach, so I had to get it drained. When I got there, they were like, ‘We can’t drain this. We have to surgically remove it.’ “
Well, we here at Gumbumper wish Serena a speedy recovery and hopes this will soon be over for her.
