Finally we arrived home about 3:30 pm today. He is on loads of different drugs. He is to take the lasix as needed only if he gains over 3-3 pounds in a day. He came home with his picc line (it is an IV) I guess this can stay in for 2 years, but since he will be cardioverted again in 3 to 4 weeks and he is such a tough stick we opted to keep this in until after the cardioversion. Then they will pull it. His daughter will change the dressing weekly--since I am not IV certified I don't even want to go there, but I will have her teach me to flush it as it will need flushed daily. He is on all kinds of different drugs, and off of some of his old ones. He is pretty tired today, so he is resting, but I am thrilled to finally have him home. Thx again for all your prayers.
