Cardiology Re-check

Yesterday was my cardiology re-check and overall it went well. X-rays show there is considerably less fluids in the lungs and clinically I am stable and doing much better. There are two current issues. One is that the new blood work shows the kidney levels are now a bit elevated from the lasix. This is a medication I really need to stay on right now though so the lungs can clear. They wanted to increase it but decided against it when the blood results came in. The second is still my lack of appetite. They started me on mirtazapine yesterday and it really helped my appetite but then later last evening and still this morning I seem to have more labored breathing. Mom isn't sure if it was the medication or the stress from yesterday but has decided against giving me any more this weekend until we can consult the cardiologist on Monday. The search continues for something I'll eat.

Thank you for all the wonderful love and support.

Hi Mia,

Glad your lungs are starting to clear. Have you tried hamburger and yams or sweet potatoes? Can't remember if you've had any baby food - meat or fruit. Just watch out for the salt content (not good for kidneys).
You're in our prayers precious.

Luv & Hugs

Mia, you should eat. Maybe you would like some baby food MEATZ. Or chicken and rice. Maybe some canned pumpkin and strained baby food.

I'm not feeling good either. I will write about it on my diary later.
