About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  5. Oh my goodness! I hope you are doing better! Injections of Lovenox?

    • oneta hayes says:

      Yes, it was Lovenox plus warfarin. Over done for sure. I followed the orders as they said. I was off a sufficient amount of time (INR 1.3) but something happened in the surgery. I started bleeding profusely – eleven hours before it stopped in the ER…. A lot of stuff overdone. Well, it is a good morning. Woke to a bloody mouth but there is no blood now. Thanks.
