My Road ID let them know that I was taking Coumadin

I just need to let you know that my Road ID helped to save my life after a bike accident on June 1, 2017. After the accident I had 10 broken ribs, a broken collar, a cracked L4 pinching on a nerve and a slow bleed in my head. Since my Road ID let them know that I was taking Coumadin and they knew that they had to take immediate actions to off set the Coumadin to stop the bleeding in my brain. It still 3 days to stop it and resulted in a 5cm clot in my brain it would had been worse if they didn't start taking action right away. My wife tells me I was a little bit amusing making up my own words if you can feel amused after all the serious possibilities passed by. After a year I'm back at work and riding my bike. I just ordered a new Road ID because after 20 years I found out that I don't need to take coumadin...an entirely different story. I just want to say Thank You.
