Dusty's check-up

Dusty had his appt. with heart surgeon yesterday and he was pleased by his progress.He said he is still on light duty for two more months(which didn't make Dusty too happy),he took him off all meds except a lopresser(sp?)for his heart rate which was a little high and an adult aspirin once a day.No more Plavix(175.00 a month),yeah!!
He can start his leg exercises now to strengthen his leg muscles(around that knee cap) which have lost strength due to lack of blood flow to the muscle.
Dr. wanted to know if he had been walking and all I could do is laugh because I can't keep him down,lol.
Thanks again for all of your prayers and good thoughts for him during this time,they were really appreciated!!

That's great news

Re: Dusty's check-up

So happy to hear Dusty had such a good bill of health with his check-up. Isn't it grand to actually know that he is doing well on the exercise front, even if you want to wring his neck for doing so before it was advised by his doctors? You folks take care, 'ya hear? Wishing the best for all. -Cindy-

GREAT news PJ and Dusty (of course). Just don't rush things....don't want to hear of any setbacks.

Re: Dusty's check-up

PJ, That is great news. But please tell Dusty not to rush things. Don't need any setbacks which would only make the recovery time be longer.
