Now for an update on Mr. T., my beloved. His low grade temperature is normal so the antibiotic is working! His lung sounds are becoming distant again which is a good thing because they normally are. He is able to take ten steps with his oxygen on again without coughing up junk. When he voluntarily reaches for his face mask or nasal cannula that's not a good thing.
After urinating every twenty minutes for 6 hours the swelling has reduced so there is less impact on his heart and lungs. His cardiac monitor is showing less strain. Has it only been three days?! It sure feels like a week to me. I think he has turned the corner, but I'm waiting for the other shoe to fall.
Thank you for all the well-wishes and prayers. Prayers have been the one thing holding us up for over a decade. That and God's mercy.
