Roger is home from the hospital and I have definitely found my pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. He is still in atrial flutter but they're hoping the Betapace will help him to convert to normal sinus rhythm. If not, when he has had a therapeutic Coumadin level for a month they can try and cardiovert him with the paddles. He feels so much better with 12 pounds of fluid gone from his body and his vital signs are normal. Thank you so much for your good thoughts and prayers. I feel complete now with my best friend back home with me.
I took Kiereney today for her pre op testing for her surgery next Wednesday and she is running a 99.6 temp and her chest x-ray had some scatterings in the bronchial tubes so she has to go to the Dr. where she lives and get a medical clearance for the surgery. I'm hoping they put her on a prophylactic antibiotic and be done with it. Her EKG looked great. I have to call Monday and get an op time. Right now it is at 2 p.m. but I was told they're rearranging the schedule so it may be earlier and she'll be in the hospital for several days.
Katie is doing well with Kiereney and she will come back to Grandma on Tuesday when Kiereney comes for her surgery. I have missed that little doll! It's been recommended to put her on melatonin and it should help her sleep at night. I'm not an herbal person so if anyone who reads here is and knows of an herb that is better for sleeping than melatonin please let me know.
I am off to become one with my recliner, cuddle with dachsies and watch Idol tonight.
Thanks again for your good thoughts and prayers...they mean so much to us.
