Thursday and today were crazy days for us....... both appointments were informational and long... but they each provided good answers! David's appointment went really well in the fact that his heart appears to be doing great, his Ejection Fraction was at 68% which is terrific and the highest number he has ever had. They did a lot of blood tests and the docs are leaning towards this being a diabetes issue and not a heart issue. He came down with medically induced diabetes a couple of weeks ago which they told him would possibly happen after transplant because of all the medicines he has, but his diet hasn't helped the situation. So we need prayers for a change of "heart" on that one.
So today the doctors told us that he is for sure having a diabetes problem and we have to go back in on Monday for more testing and another clinic visit. They are unhappy about how out of control it is and his blood pressure is still not under control so they want to get a handle on that as well. All things that need to be taken care of before we can go home!!
Here is my prayer request, that David continue to have the positive outlook that he currently has but also WANT to make the EXTREME diet and exercise changes that they are asking him to do. He is unwilling and unmotivated to do so, I can only do so much in the cooking for him area, he is 20! I know he wants to, but we have all been 20 before and we all know how hard this is for him. So please pray for him and also if any of you talk to him please encourage him to make these healthy lifestyle choices!
