After Starting Lasix

Just got back from Cardiology appointment. All I can say is THANK YOU GOD!! Caleb's liver has shrunk back down. The left side of his heart is no longer enlarged & the right side has started to shrink a bit. His pulmonary hypertension is slightly lower. The words came out of the dr's mouth "he may be a candidate for heart surgery". I about fell to the floor. The look on the dr's face was priceless, never seen him so happy. We are still not there yet. We need to know why Caleb is still needing o2 & what is going on with his obstructions. Last thing we want is for him to be stuck on a ventilator. I am thrilled beyond words. And the Doctor continues to be amazed...all in GOD'S HANDS
We have to watch to make sure his lungs are not getting damaged from the blood that is accumulating in them. There is a balance with the heart doing well and the lungs may not be. We will have to make decisions on surgery if things start to change. We always pray for guidance.

  1. That is great! Your love and care for Caleb is an inspiration to others who have to walk the same road. I pray that he continues to improve and that God gives you the wisdom to know how to best take care of him.
