Thanks so much,
Last but of course, not least: We got the results from Jessica's last holter monitor. She is still having around 10,000 PVCs a day but seems to be having more symptoms OFF the medication so for now we are leaving her on it. I figured out that she was having tummy aches from taking the Procanbid right when she got up along with her Carafate so I have held the Procanbid until after she eats along with her other "morning" meds - which has to be an hour after taking the carafate. Unfortunately, sometimes I am slow to get her meds to her and so she has been taking the Procanbid more like 2 - 3 hours after waking up and the last few days she has been having more symptoms of her heart beating hard. It could be from the delay in giving her the Procanbid which makes me sad to think it could be my fault. But Jess has been sickly all week so she could be having break-through symptoms. It's hard to tell... and with me feeling horrible all week and not getting much sleep at night it's been a miracle that I've been able to give her all her meds. Thank goodness I have a meds schedule on the inside of the cabinet.
OK... enough whinning. Time to go to bed, set my alarm to get up in a few hours so I can cancel an appointment for Jess with her psychologist for this afternoon since it's supposed to be rainy, cold, windy and I just can't take Jess out in that type of weather. Besides, we haven't had any sleep. Then hopefully Jessica's aid will come and I can have a looooooong nap. Did I mention that as soon as we started feeling sick last week Jessica's aid got quite sick and was out all week? Fortunately we only went 2 days without an aid and an old friend/aid was able to fill in for the weekend. Otherwise I'd be in a padded room for sure! I hope our regular aid is feeling better. She's a single mom and it's gotta be hard going at it alone! Besides, Jess misses her. awww... Well, I can hear the wind starting up already and soon Karl and the boys will be getting up and going for their day.... Hopefully the next post will contain pictures that I keep promising you!
