And So On....

Every day lately has just been a matter of wondering what bad things might come along next.

Michael's heart rate is good (and his weight is great; he's 371.6 this morning), but he feels terrible, he's exhausted all the time, he's dizzy, and worst of all for me, he's really confused most of the time. He's been doing things like talking to the remote control instead of the phone and trying to eat his tea (the drink, not the meal) with a fork. I find this a little scary. Everyone seems to think that it's all about low heart function (and his blood pressure is low, too) but this is not exactly comforting to me.

Last night... or this morning, more accurately... he got up, and then I don't know what happened. He fell, fortunately not hurting himself, but we couldn't get him up and had to call the paramedics.

The cardiologist swears that he will feel better next week. We'll see, I guess.

I am so sorry about your dear cat companion. I know your life is a frustration right now and I wish I could say something to help but I just don't know how. I certainly hope your husband feels better when he gets used to the new blood pressure level. I do know how he feels to an extent, it causes migraines in me. Please let us hear from you again soon. I have been really wondering how you were doing.

Hi Nina,
How has this past week gone?

Looking after yourself is important too - you okay?
