Yah, my week off starts today!

   Once again I have survived a week of work and now can reap the benefits of a week off.  I really need it as we were short every single night and I am soooooo tired.  

   The young mother's CHF was caused they think,by the hospital she was in running in 7 bags of IV fluid when she had her C-section.  That is good new because it is probably reversable and her EF which shows how good her heart is working is good.  I am happy about it.  They had her new baby up today and what a cutie.

   Dan is still slowly getting better but I still don't like the way his foot looks and he still can't walk on it.  He pushed the doctor to let him come home but I think a few more days on IV antibiotics wouldn't have hurt.

    I am off the Advair now and after I work out at the gym when I get up I am going to take some lasix as my legs are really swollen.  I weigh in on Friday and don't want to have all this fluid on board.

   Well, I am off to bed.  I will only sleep until noon as I have to get a package ready to mail and want to hit the gym for some much need exercise.  Pump me up.  Talk to all later.
