Far Guy had a medical appointment up north...it is a 2 1/2 hour drive there...so most of the day was spent in the car. Earlier in the morning the new /old car Tilly was ready to be picked up so we went and got her before we left...her gas gauge works now:)
Far Guy is getting a new Doctor, she seems nice and listened to his concerns...she said "You have challenging issues." Yes we knew that...hope she likes a challenge. He is getting referrals to all the specialty Doctors that he needs to see. His Neurologist retired...His Pulmonary Dr has gone to being in the hospital only...so it was time to get different balls rolling..plus he has never had a Cardiologist...and probably needs to be rechecked after that stent was placed last September. The clinic we chose partners with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN...so that must be a plus...and our daughter Jen lives very near the clinic up north. ( Bonus...we can visit Jen, Andy, Noah and Adam and Little Elvis)
Far Guy has still not regained his strength since the Lung Valve procedure in May. His breathing is worse and now he is short of breath at night. He is losing weight and in four more pounds will weigh what he did in high school.
He was prescribed prednisone to help with his breathing and the new Dr is going to confer with the Doctors at the U of MN.
For now it is all we can do.
