Pretty good report from Duke

15 01 2010

Wednesday was our appointment at Duke to evaluate how this new medication is working on Ed’s Pulmonary Hyper-tension (PHT). It has been difficult for Ed to tell if there is much of a difference but he does think it is helping a bit. His Dr. there specializes in PHT and she wants Ed to stay on the meds as well as begin some heart and lung rehab therapy. He feels pretty good about that.

She wants to see him again in May. On our ride home, I asked him what he thought of the visit and he was particularly happy about not having to come back until spring. He said,” That means they expect me to still be around.”  A little gallows humor.

Aside from having to get up at 5:30 in the morning, we had a decent visit and a nice drive home. And yes… I fully expect him to still be around in May.
