|You should have your ankle checked. If it is a clot, they'll give you blood thinners. They can't operate to remove it because surgery stimulates a clot to rush to the lungs, heart, or brain. This is one of the few perks of being a bleeder. I'll never die of a clot.
Clots are scary things. I remember once reading that the author of "Goodnight Moon," one of the favorite books of most small children, died when she was leaving a hospital and kicked up her leg to celebrate her recovery from appendicitis. The kick dislodged a clot that went straight to her heart and killed her. Even being on the hospital grounds couldn't save her life.
