They said he has 3 options. Take meds, have the procedure done or do nothing. Because he has dizziness, pain and shortness of breath I don’t think doing nothing is a good idea. I’m not crazy about taking the medicine Diltiazem for very long either. He has a low blood pressure normally anyway and that medicine can lower it even more. What do you do for someone whose blood pressure drops? That makes me nervous too. We are also not crazy about having the procedure done either but it does seem like the best option, at least that way it will be fixed and over and done with and he won’t have this happen to him anymore and won’t have to take pills the rest of his life.
So that’s where we are at right now. They will be getting a hold of us to let us know when to take him to Madison but I imagine it won’t be until after the first of the year. I’m glad they want him to go to Madison and have it done at the University hospital. That’s where he’s had most of his surgeries and they have all his records there. I did like the doctor in Janesville but he said he’d also feel better with him going there. A doctor who says that tells me he’s a good doctor. He said he does those procedures but the University has better equipment and they know William there.
Well I better go and get busy. No matter what Christmas is just a couple days away and I have tons to do yet. I think I’ll go to the grocery store today and beat the last minute shoppers. I’m looking forward to having all the kids home, I always love that. So from my house and family to yours I wish a Very Merry and Blessed Christmas and I hope the New Year treats you well.
Love & Hugs to all!
