Update On My Hubby

With the IV lasix Dave's lungs and tissues cleared out nicely. The did do a chest xray Monday. They did one last night which the nurse practitioner ordered to be read wet--for some reason it was not therefore the lasix didn't get started till this morning. The cardioversion was set for 2 pm this afternoon--the doc did not get there until 2:30 and lo and behold he had converted to a normal rhythm on his own. He is feeling much better now and they moved him to room 530B. Lucky man keeps getting a window bed when he is in a semi private room. He has been in 4 different rooms since he went in on Monday. 2 of them were private rooms. He will probably be sent home tomorrow. He will continue to take the amiodirone orally -- is now on aldactone, a diuretic--and zestril for his blood pressure. Thank you everyone for all your thoughts and prayers.

Glad to hear he converted on amio. Geez, four rooms in a week? That's crazy. I hope he gets to come home today and that amio keeps him converted! :)
