Thank you for praying for Teresa. She is feeling much better today .She is on day 2 of her meds. being increased . So far she is tolerating it very well with no side effects. By Monday she will be at the maximum dose and if all goes well we will come home.
The hope is to try and slow the severe regurgitation and help her heart function better. The sad news is she is now at severe regurgitation of her tricuspid valve , 10 months ago it was only mild regurgitation . The options for her if the meds. do not work are not great .
She is still requiring oxygen to keep her sats. above 75. We are hoping to get her back to her base line without the use of oxygen but the Doctors think it may be something she requires more often now.
She still has her spunky sweet personality through it all. She helps the Doctors and nurses with all the tests and procedures. They are amazed at how well she cooperates with everything that is done to her. She has found happiness even in the hospital. She carries her pink Mickey purse with her everywhere filled with her stash of goodies to share with everyone . Her light continues to shine .
