Some good news today, the doctor really likes how Dave is responding to the new IV drug, so he wants to try the other meds one more time before making a decision. He will probably wait until Friday to try that again. So here are the two possible scenarios at this point.
A) If Dave responds well to the drugs they will insert a pace maker and a defibrillator into his heart to keep him from "sudden death", then they will send him home to basically wait it out until we can't wait it out any longer, his heart gets worse, or he just doesn't recover in a timely basis. With this plan he will not be on the transplant list.
B) If he doesn't respond to the drugs again, they won't waste any time and will put him right on the list as the highest priority for a new heart.
So right now it is a waiting game, we will know more after they start him on the other meds this weekend probably. He had a really good day today, color in his cheeks, eating well, peeing out that fluid, etc. He said he felt really good today as well, not as sluggish. So lets see how this plays out.....
