That's true Connie. So he had 50 weeks, then a slip. On the recount he is at 89 days. I don't want to forget about
all the hard work it was to get to the 50 weeks, but know that we are counting over.
So, endoscopy is done. Varices and gastropathy are stable from a year ago. I am seeing the glass as half empty. I was hoping that with the year on the propranolol that the varices would have gone down. So, his GI doc is going to have us up the monitoring of blood pressure and HR for the next month. Depending on those, he may tweek his bp meds. Or bring him back in for banding.
I am feeling disappointed. I know that he is in better shape than many of the patients here, and I am mindful of that. But for right now today, I feel sad about
this. Not overwhelmed like I felt a year ago when he was first dx, but still sad. Things have been going so well, especially this last month since he quit his bar job. I guess I was feeling too free of all this. Anyway.
So, next up - ultrasound and blood work on Saturday morning. Should have blood results on line by Sunday night. It's back on my knees for praying...
