Just wanted to post a small note to let everyone know what is going on. I had to put Uncle Boone back in the hospital on Monday. They knew he had a lot of fluid build-up, but were also worried about pneumonia. They decided on Tuesday that he didn’t have pneumonia, but that the fluid build-up in his lungs was severe, so they have been giving him large doses of Lasix to try to eliminate the fluids. They also have been running other tests and have discovered that the right side of his heart is not working properly. This perplexes the Doctors because the left side of the heart is the side that handles fluid build-up. We, his family, and his Doctors have decided when they get him feeling better that he will go back to the Nursing Home. Since he doesn’t live with me, and is getting somewhat confused from all the medicines he is on, I feel that is best for now. If he can get built back up in a few weeks, then he may be able to go back to my cousin, Charlotte’s house, where he has an above average place to live. I will just have to try to be more aware of what he is eating and what he is drinking. This is why I haven’t been writing on the blog, and may not be able to while we have all of this going on. Our sister, Dotty has come up from Paducah to give me a hand with some of this and she is a big help to me.
Before I close I want to welcome my newest follower, The Coast To Coast Trips. Thanks for following my site and I will be checking yours out as soon as I can.
I will also not have time to read all the wonderful blogs that I love, and won’t be able to leave comments like I love doing. I will get back on and get caught up as soon as I can. Thank you all so much for your prayers. My whole family appreciates it.
