FIL gets the go ahead to get moving
Friday, September 13, 2013
So things are moving along well and he got the go ahead to walk more and move more. He is finally going to the bathroom now. Woo hoo. That's a big deal. He still is very shaky after 3 weeks in bed and will have to work with the therapist and nurses to regain his strength but he does have a good attitude. The cardiologist was at his house again yesterday and did the electrocardiogram. So very interesting how they have the portable equipment and how I could watch is heart beat on the screen. We will meet again with the cardiologist at his house again today to get the full report and learn what treatment he recommends for his high blood pressure. I know it will take a bit to get the right meds for that and treatment. But we are ahead of the game and all is good.
I am still feeling good and am getting organized for my trip and our 40 days away. My doctor told me yesterday that she will write a letter just in case I might have a flare up to instruct whoever might care for me what to do with the IV and what to put in it, etc. Hopefully I will not have a flare up and all will be good. I know if I take the time to prepare "just in case" that nothing will happen.
I hope all of you are doing well. Are you making good decisions?
Have a wonderful day.
