tears were streaming down my face when I was reading the content of the links above. My heart is broken for this guy and his little girl. This is a terrible tragedy that puts a lot of things in perspective... all of the sudden the succes of the marathon seems very silly. Especially when I think about the similiaries of the Logelin's situation and ours. We are very lucky that Mrs. Clot Buster knows what she knows about blood clots and blood clotting disorders, I just wish that more people out there would know more.
How come this death could not be prevented in a hospital of all places? The more reason for me to continue spreading the word as much as possible along with NATT because this sort of thing CANNOT and SHOULD NOT happen.
Although this is a terrible tragedy it is also one of those circumstances in which I can draw inspiration and continue to do what I do to spread the word about blood clots and blood clotting disorders.
Thanks for reading,
The Clot Buster
P.S.: I hope to write some more about the marathon soon. As you can see the above mentioned topic is far more important than any race report can be.
