Saw the Cardiologist

I called the cardiologist this morning to ask if it would be okay to give hims something different for pain because he is having these headaches that just don't go away. He suggested to try some Advil. Then later on in the day the office called and asked if I would like to come in today instead of Wednesday for the follow up. Heck yeah. So we went today. He did an ECHO and said the valves look great and there wasn't any leakage. He was excited to see that. Then he noticed some fluid on the ECHO on his lung. We knew he had that at the hospital but I didn't think it would still be there. Then he noticed some fluid around his heart. I didn't remember the doctors in St.Pete mentioning anything about that fluid. He looked at the discharge report from the hospital and it didn't mention anything about fluid around his heart. He said it all looks okay but he wants to keep track of it and follow up with it. So he sent us to the hospital to get a chest x-ray and wants to see him again on Thursday morning. I'm am relieved that he is looking into these things and not just letting them be. The only other thing is that everytime we go to see that doctor we have to pay the copay and it's not cheap being he is a specialist but I will pay it to make sure he is well taken care of. We'll see what he says when we go and see him on Thursday.

Meanwhile we are trying to get back into the swing of school work. Let me tell you God did not make me a teacher for a reason. I have NO patience. He is probably one of the most unmotivated kids when it comes to school that I have ever seen. I would probably be the same way too if I didn't have to do school work for 3 weeks too. So here we are trying to both get into the swing of things.

I go back to work tommorrow night for the first time in three weeks I think. LOL. It's going to be weird because I can feel that my body is still weak at sometimes. I know it's going to take awhile for it to heal I just hope that it can keep up with me.

Jj is doing great. He is trying hard to help take care of Cyrus and be the big guy as much as he can. Of course Cyrus tries and pushes his buttons as I'm sure any little brother would do.

Things are moving well around here and I can only hope that things get better as this awful year comes to a close.

Thank you to everyone for all the prayers, visits, presents, and comments. They have really meant alot and have definitely made a difficult situation easier to deal with. Thank You.
