69 Profile Views and over 160 Page Loads in the Past 2 days!

Ooh, I guess I pissed someone off!

Funny that this blog has been here since 2007. Look at the archives. 2007 was the first post.

 

Glad I got the blog all pretty before I got all this traffic! Let me say welcome to all of the new followers or readers.

I really appreciate all of your clicks. The more you visit my site, the higher it will get in the search engines and the more people I will be able educate!! So, you may not realize it, but you’re helping my cause. Thank you!

 

I got a few comments I’d like to respond to.

 

One person asked to have their name removed. Since they didn’t leave their name, I don’t know WHICH name to removed. So I went through recent posts and removed one name. I tried to removed the names from the most recent posts and will remove all names in the future.

The 2nd comment was something about netiquette and a specific APS group. This comment I deleted. Let me say here that I am not affiliated with ANY of the APS groups, foundations, forums, however, I am a MEMBER of many of them. I am only here to educate. I have Google alerts that send me information on APS and INR machines. I also utilize Google reader. Two excellent tools.

So you may ask yourself why a lot of my links are from the APSFA site then? Well, when I was initially researching, that was where I found my information because their site and links are pretty high in the search engines.

 

And if you look at the entire blog, not just the last 5 or so posts, you’ll see that my testimonies come from all different sources: forums, youtube, facebook, and even yahoo groups. So, they are not group specific. I post em as I see em…wherever I see em.

 

Comments are now being moderated as well. For now, I will continue to accept anonymous comments, but if the nasty and accusing comments continue, then I change that as well. I don’t want to.

And since so many people are reading today, I posted a few more things for you to ponder, or scoff at…and then some links that may open your eyes. As well as my own story which I have not shared…and the reason why I made this blog in the first place.

 

I also have a challenge for those who SWEAR by these machines.

Show me PROOF that they are accurate.

Give me the black and white.

Bet you can’t.

Leave it in a comment.

 

I dare you to.

When I searched about finger stick machines about a year ago, that APSFA links were the first ones to come up. I am glad they have the "fine print" out there because the companies sure don't or if they do, it is buried on their sites.

I agree.

I wish I had looked at/for the fine print before we got that damned machine for my mom. She may be here with me now.

My goal is to educate APS patients on long term coumadin or warfarin about the possible dangers of using, and relying on Home (finger stick) INR machines to test their INR. Nothing more, nothing less. **I am not affiliated with any APS group, but a member of many. I am just trying to educate people about these machines.**
