Things are not going well in the Larui Circle. I’m ok. Within the inner circle it’s my dad. Fevers of 105. They finally found the gall bladder was infected but it appears that one of the fever spikes (with shortness of breath and shaking so hard it almost seemed like a seizure) may have given him a small heart attack. Nothing that shows up on EKG, but his heart enzymes did go above acceptable levels.
So, some docs are saying he HAS to get rid of the gall bladder before it goes gangrenous and others are saying he HAS to have his heart checked out first….but if they find something wrong with his heart which is fixable it will be six months before they can remove a potentially gangrenous gall bladder. Jezuz. He was feeling great the last two days, got a drain in the gall bladder, blasted with antibiotics, infection under control, we thought. Last night he got a low grade fever again. Damn! We’ll see what today brings.
Anyway, the THANKS is for making me smile. Cranky, I got the Boston Terrier poster! I love it and it’s adorable and I have it hanging next to another BT framed poster I have. I need to get a pic of them both! And thanks to Laurie for my Moosie! And to Aussie Emjay for her postcard from Oz. And to all of you for your well wishes. We will get this figured out somehows! 😉
