His doctor also took him off the bP med (lisinopril) they gave him in the hospital because his BP has come back down since getting home in calm surroundings with healthy food. His BP was actually getting a bit too low so she overruled the cardiologist on this one and took him off of it. So he is still on the Cumadin and Amiodarone and a diuretic but she also reduced the last one to every other day. So, fewer pills all the time. Yay!
If only every cloud in life had a Betorq...
Needless to say, I'm glad your clouds are interspersed with sunshine.
Sending loving thoughts for a continued recovery.

That is really great news! How is the confusion going? Is he feeling better there?
Also, I can make a yoga sequence to practice in a hallway (so he can work balance) if you/he would be interested.
I think i am going to put him back on a low dose of the Seroquel (25 mg sound good, Jac?) just so he can be zonked out enough to sleep through the night.
Thank you for the offer on the yoga, Zoe, but, at this point, things are changing so fast that it is hard to tell what he could do or would even understand. He doesn't even know where he is half the time.
My husband's great aunt (his favorite aunt) suffered what her doctors suspected were mini strokes, and she also saw things that weren't there. I say suspected, because as a lifelong devoted Christian Scientist, she only wanted care from their practitioners, which request my MIL honored as those arrangements were in writing and reiterated all of this aunt's life.
I've been thinking of you both and know this tough on both of you. Hugs and blessings.
Oh man. Sounds like the fecal matter hit the rotary impeller while I was out. I'm sorry to hear about your woes, PB, but glad your dad is out of the hospital.
My grandma was admitted last year to Sharps for heart trouble (she's 91, a little frail, but otherwise fine now). They brought her a meal while I was sitting with her. It was a disaster on a plate. Pork loin (which had all the fat cut off), marinara sauce (on pork loin? whyyyy?), margarine (seriously?), non-fat salad dressing full of soybean oil and HFCS (ugh), and a wheat roll. I think there was also a steamed veggie. My Mima didn't eat the margarine and refused the salad dressing, and I told her if she stayed in much longer I'd be forced to sneak in some olive oil and vinegar.
Anyway, glad he's home and glad things are looking up. Take care.

Robin, I came back to MDA after a hiatus and was getting very excited at your Dad's improvement until I got to the post about your Dad's turn for the worse on Saturday. My thoughts are with you and I do so hope things get better.
Thinking of you... (and give that lamb Betorq a hug from me, too!)
