I had to go back to see Dr. Ferguson today my cardiologist to follow up from my visit 2 weeks ago. Heres the positive news.. i had chest x-rays that showed no fluid around heart or lungs.. woohoo !!! Mom was worried as i have been coughing and gagging like crazy ! my heart is huge .. but we already knew that. They took blood which we will get results tomorrow afternoon. We are SO HAPPY that my tremors have just about totally stopped., ( some days not at all ) which indicates that the new dosage of medication is working.. woohooo ! He upped another medication today to help keep the blood flowing in the proper direction and to keep oxygen going to my brain so i won't have those terrible tremors ! Depending on blood results he may add another new medication that won't hurt my already compromised kidney issue. He feels that my kidney issue is coming from all the medication that they must use to help my heart .. they cut back on my lasix and we stopped the digoxin as it was making me not want to eat. I also have been so itchy .. and we will be trying to figure out if it is environmental or what ..depending on my blood report we may try a new medication for the itching, if it works than we will know it is plain ole allergies.. I am resting like a princess on my pillow .. and we will update after we hear back on the blood report tomorrow. Thanks everyone !
