Ford had his INR checked on Tuesday morning. It had improved from a 1.5 to a 1.7. That is in the right direction and we are encouraged. He is to continue with his dose of 10 ml of coumadin three times a week with 7.5 ml. the rest of the time. Ford is also willing to keep taking the "natural" stuff we added to see if it would improve his levels. Although it has a reputation for tasting nasty, if it helps...it beats many of the alternatives.
