Update

I just thought I would take a minute to tell everyone that there must have been some wires crossed in the communication about the results of Roger wearing the heart monitor.  We seen her this morn, and she said she didn't see anything it showing anything.  We will just go ahead and have the scan of his carotid artery on November 21.

And I had not mentioned this but he had an Upper GI yesterday.  And it didn't really show anything.  The reason it was ordered is that he has a chronic cough.  They wanted to rule out his acid reflux causing the cough.  And it did rule it out.  The doctor did take a couple biopsies.  There was a place in the wall of the stomach that looked a different color, so he took one from there and one from another spot.
**********
We had to come home today and had just a about 45 minutes before we had to go to therapy.  After we got home from there, I have not did a single thing.  Just totally wiped out.  This morn I was awake by 5:00 and could not sleep any more.  And the same thing yesterday morn, though yesterday I had lain back down and was going to at least try to sleep.  The hospital called to see if we could come in for the Upper GI right then, so we had to rush and get down there.  We were out of there by around noon-12:30ish.  It had been scheduled to begin at 1:00 so we were both happy to have gotten the call.

Anyway, I have had no energy to blog...not sure if I will get back to it tomorrow or not.  But I did want to let you know that prayers have been answered.

Take a good rest and don't worry about blogging until you are strengthened and refreshed. May the good news continue and that Roger will get well soon.

Glad things are working out well for Roger... BUT--I can only imagine what you are going through as the caregiver... Don't worry about blogging. Just take one step at a time... I'm getting ready to take a blog break also --even if I only blog about once a week these days...

Hugs,
Betsy
