Discharged

by on August 28, 2009

[Authors Note:  I’m composing this post quite some time after her discharge.  I have to apologize for that but as you may have assumed, things have been at a new level of hectic around here.  Read all my other posts and I think it couldn’t be more clear.  It’s almost unbelievable what’s going on.]

Satomi was discharged on Friday (August 28th) after a boat load of tests and trying several drugs in an effort to reduce her breathing and arrythmia (or palpatations if you wish).  The results were not enouraging.  The test were clear and all but one drug effected her symptoms.  I guess I should be happy that they did find a drug that was effective. 

All the test results were fine (which I guess in and of itself is a good thing).  No one can give us a definite cause of the symptoms but the Cardiologist did find it necessary to prescribe a Beta Blocker (Lopressor) to slow the heart and breathing to normal levels.  On several occassions to different Doctors, I had asked about the possibility of this being caused by the Decradron weening cycle or possibly the scar tissue in her brain.  Several acknowledged the possibility but all had focused their efforts on potential solutions not brain related.  I got the distinct feeling that they were avoiding it.

So another drug is added to her list of a half-dozen drugs that she has to take every day.  Crap.

    Sean, I was worried that you hadn’t written in a while. Silence was not golden. I’m glad things are leveling out. Give Satomi my best wishes. Stay strong.
