Blood should be thicker than water

So I was supposed to be screwd back together today, but a blood test revealed that my blood is to thin for the operation and I will have to wait for Thursday.

How does this work?

Since my cancer operation I am taking small quantities of warfarin to help clear a deep vein trombosis (DVT) that formed in my leg jus below the operation region. This drug is messing with the clotting rate of your blood (vitamine K also plays an important role - eat your green leaved vegies). So now my blod will not clot quicly enough and the drug must wear off before I can be operated on.

So here I sit with my broken ankle in a R1500 moonboot and wait for thursday...
