Update Update


After 8 hours of tests and (mostly) waiting, Dianne was admitted to the hospital with a diagnosis of congestive heart failure. 2 hours later, at 1:30 a. m. Saturday she was assigned to a room.  The symptoms are similar (fluid build up around the organ) and so is the treatment (mainly diuretics).  She has had this before (18 years ago ) and recovered successfully.  The problem is not usually a bad as it sounds.  She is probably asleep now, it has been a long and stressful day.  It is nearly 3 a. m. and i must go to bed myself.  I hated to leave her in a strange room in the middle of the night.

I've just caught up on your journal, at least as it covers Dianne. You're both in my prayers.

I'm sorry to read this. I'm glad the problem may not be as bad as it sounds. I hope you both got a good night's sleep. I know how hard this is for you both. Take care.

Thank you, my friends
My response to your prayers and caring thoughts was too long delayed. You may know that Dianne had heart failure caused by too much fluid build up and too little oxyger. She is out of danger, out of the hospital, and almost ready to come home. It will happen this week--probably Friday.
