We have been doing dialysis now for a month. Getting the hang of it pretty good. Not many mistakes now. Thank you God! Remembering what to do even without the "cheat sheet". Finally! LOL
Rick is still struggling with the full feeling. We went to bed the other night after doing an exchange and when he finally got still with a measure of comfort, he said - "I now know how a pregnant woman must feel!" ROFL!
Physical therapy is still going on with the shoulder/rotator cuff. Jeff (physical therapist) told us yesterday that his passive strength is doing ok, but the active strength is what is so lacking. His range of motion is excellent. His mobility is good. Just having to really concentrate and work with repetition on the strength training.
We met with Dr. Devinney this past Wednesday. He is a bit concerned with the lack of strength in the shoulder, so he is wanting another MRI done - just to see the degree of healing. IF worker's comp will approve.
Rick is finally getting some relief from the cough/congestion crud. After a round of antibiotics, 2 boxes of Mucinex and now on his 3rd bottle of Mucinex - he OUGHT to be better! Goodness. So thankful that he is able to breathe deeper and better.
I have an appointment in Houston @ MD Anderson with Dr. Frumovitz on February 14. We will be going down on the 13th and should be coming back on the 15th.
