Improvement? Tests! Food!

Today seems to have been The Dawg's best day since he got out of the hospital. Yippee!!!!
He still gets very short of breath but he's taking his breathing treatments. We learned there is still some fluid in the lungs; there are procedures to remove the fluid, thank goodness.

Part of the shortness of breath may be due to his heart valve problems. He has appointment with one of the heart specialists on Tuesday, so we're hoping something can be done about that.
He had open heart surgery to replace the valve scheduled for May 19th; that was postponed when he was hospitalized with pneumonia.

The Dawg will have more tests on Thursday at MUSC. We'll be there about five or six hours, or so we've been told. These were ordered after medical appointments on Tuesday.

He received a phone call today with a special pre-testing diet. He has to have black coffee, bacon and eggs and nothing else for breakfast on Thursday AND the exact same thing tonight for supper. Isn't that a strange pre-test diet????

That means he can't eat what he had last night:

That bowl was slap full of ice cream!!!

Tuesday night was a good one for the Braves! Hurrah!

Tonight wasn't so good for the Braves, but at least they've won 2 out of 3 in this series. There's one more game against Pittsburg on Thursday.
