hat clot in the heart, big deal…yes, it is.  It’s not terribly problematic when the clot is in the heart, the problem comes when that clot breaks loose.  The clot breaks loose and the way I picture it is like a marble through a tube.  The only problem is the tube (vessels) get smaller and smaller.  The clot then travels through the blood vessels and can get lodged and cut off circulation in various parts of the body.  Two very important parts being the brain (stroke) or the lung (pulmonary embolism).  I’m not the best physiologist in the world, so we better get back to the drugs tomorrow night!
