Yikes! There are a number of meds to thin blood. If I were you, I would ask 
about a cheaper method. When my husband had a pulmonary embolism, the doc 
prescribed an injectable that was $100 per dose - two doses per day. OUCH! 
 Insurance didn't cover it, so we asked for something else. We got oral meds and
worked just fine.
