Good thing that clot didn't break off and lead to a PE though.

Glad you're ok.

Yes, I got the Heparin drip right away. Also on a personal note, kudos to yourself being in the field at this time. The masks alone for a 12 hour shift and trying to breathe out of one of those things have to be a pain in the ass. I was told by 1 nurse that a few have brusing around their nose area from wearing them.
