So down one dose we went. As we we were about to stand up and leave the examination room, Jack suddenly said "Thank you Dr. Soup! Thank you for my heart!" and hugged Dr. Su's shoulder. It was absolutely heart melting.
That was tuesday. Of COURSE- wednesday morning, Jack wakes up with a runny nose. Something inside me panics when he adds any kind of symptom, heart-related or not. Runny noses have nothing to do with the heart. But this is all what happened last time. We went down on the diuretic's, Jack started getting sick, and we ended up admitting him for another chest tube. I'm so psycho now. I need to remember that this time is different, because we had surgery to prevent pleural effusions and we have taken extreme precautions to keep them from occurring again.
I still try to limit Jack's fat intake to 3-5 grams per serving. The Dr.'s want to see us again in 6 weeks. (Dr. Jou suggested 6 MONTHS, but Dr. Su knew better...)
So everyone pray that we continue on with progress...
