Thank you all so very much for all your support during this very trying time for Colin and I ...
Colin is now on a higher dose of Respiridone which is a medication to slow down his anger and anxiety attacks.
He is much better, and it is much easier to cope with him.
He is getting very forgetful but that is all part of the Dementia .
My results came back ... I have Atrial Fibulation but it is intermittent ... if it was all the time I would be in to have treatment ... I am on Warferin 6 mgs a day .. to keep my blood from clotting .
I also have a faulty Aorta valve that the doctors will need to keep an eye on .. as long as my blood is thin, it shouldn't cause me to much trouble ..
They also found the damage to my heart when I had a major heart attack in 1998 is worse than they first thought, and I need to have medication for that too ..
So all in all, was good news ...
I need to slow down .. and I need to get back to exercise but not as much as I was ..
I am allowed to walk and swim do my pool exercises but gym is a no no .
so it looks like I have to act my age .. 70 .. and as my specialist said, not get around like a spring chicken.
So my loves I have been told ..
Thank you all again for all your wonderful support .. I love you all ... Susie .
