Ron's home

He was discharged this afternoon. Official diagnosis is heart failure. He's feeling pretty good - not great, but pretty good. Got started on some new medications - another blood pressure pill, lasix, and a potassium pill. We'll have to discuss these with the kidney doctor because we don't want the combination of those to adversely affect his kidneys.

Tomorrow we're back to our regular routine. Thanks for all the prayers, thoughts, comments, and well wishes. I appreciate it.

Glad to hear he's home. Hope the meds all work well together. He's got to watch his diet real close now. Especially with sodium. Hope you get some rest this weekend!! Hugs!

Heart failure? so what does that mean? congestive? and he has to keep fluid off? boy, oh boy...will definitely keep him in prayer. How are YOU doing? Things were looking so good, I'm sure this is discouraging. ugh. You take good care of yourself as well...hugs, thinking about you both and praying.
