Test results are back and for the most part they are pretty good! The V/Q scan came back totally negative and he doesn't have any blood clots, so this was the first part of the good news! The echo showed his ejection fraction to be at 65% which was up from last week so that is wonderful news! Something that they noticed last week that they are going to keep an eye on though is that his right side of the heart is a little stiff which is not uncommon early on in heart transplant patients, sometimes it just takes awhile for it to get revvvin... if you get my drift. But after a certain point it should be up and beating as well as the other side. Last weeks echo showed it was really stiff and yesterdays echo showed the same thing, so they ordered a right heart cath to be done at the same time as his biopsy on Thursday to measure the pressures of that right side just to make sure that it is doing what it is supposed to be doing and is just sleepy and not failing! So prayers needed for that one!
Also, David is being a real booger about one of his meds, he pretty much refuses to take one of them. It is a medicine that he either has to suck on or swish in his mouth and then swallow to prevent an oral infection and he says the medicine is disgusting, which I am sure it is, and he flat out refuses to take it. The doctor told him yesterday how bad it would be for him if he got an infection but he just doesn't care, there is only so much I can do here about this. He isn't 4 any more and as much as I would like to hold him down and make him take it I just can't:) So I would really appreciate some prayers in that regard as well!!
We have spent a very relaxing day today after yesterday, both of us are in our lounging about clothes, Dave rented an in room movie and I have played on the computer and done some reading. It has been quite nice today, I wish it was a bit warmer I would step outside for a bit and work on my sun tan!! He wants to go out and about tomorrow and see some sights and do some errands, plus he has a list for the grocery store, so it is probably good we had a day of rest!
