Quick update

For the most part, Daddy is much better this week.

It took FIVE days for the gabapentin to totally clear his system.

The confusion is long gone, but the arrhythmia remains.

He’s supposed to have electro cardioversion next Monday, so please keep him in your prayers.

It’s really tough to watch someone go from 100% fully functioning (as in working a 40+ hour a week job, doing strenuous labor, with fully functioning mental capacity) to not knowing why he’s “in this place” (his own home), seeing things that aren’t there, talking about things nobody else is privy to and being unable to walk, hold his own fork, etc… in a matter of less than 24 hours.

It’s especially tough when it’s your Daddy, who’s not just your hero, but your number one fan…

He can now walk, talk & chew bubble gum all at once again, he’s just got a heart trying to march to a different drum.  Here’s hoping the amiodarone and Digoxin work and the shock isn’t necessary!!
