Well, I think I'm now getting the "Employee Discount" on those rare occasions when I actually eat something in the hospital cafeteria.
Husband has now been in there for 10 days and is in his third room. He was given clearance to move from the Telemetry Unit to the Liver/Kidney floor. His heart is functioning as well as it ever will. His kidney function is improving a little each day. I know he's been seen by at least 3 Kidney Specialists. They haven't quite got the Lasix adjusted to manage the kidney function without triggering the CHF. So, I think if the Creatinin levels will stabilize, he will be able to come home, hopefully in the next couple of days. He was finally able to get out and walk in the hall today, with a walker. They wanted to send in a physical therapist and he told them he didn't need any more doctors involved.
Since it was the CT contrast dye that caused all this, MDA will have to use an alternate plan. So, I'll contact them again when he's out to see if he can still be treated, given these new issues. Onward and Upward!
My best to all,
