Join me on my latest Pacific Solo adventure, where I faced a life-threatening situation when I developed blood clots. . In this video, I share the intense moments of returning to my boat after a hospital stay, only to find that my leg condition worsened. I was worried they might keep me in the hospital, but the blood tests revealed a surprising twist – my medication was working, and the clots were shrinking despite the painful swelling. Once I realized my life and limb were no longer in jeopardy, my perspective shifted. I went from being angry at myself for not taking my medication earlier to feeling incredibly grateful that I was, in fact, okay. Join me in this rollercoaster of an episode, full of resilience and gratitude for a second chance on the Pacific Solo adventure!
