Finally caught up with the DVR.
Mom day, then visit hubby in the hospital tomorrow.
Mom day is mammogram day for her. It takes months to get an appt at this place. No changing it. Although we don't know what , if anything, she would do at her age if the cancer returns. Somehow all she did was have her breast removed. Nothing else. No chemo, no radiation, no pills.
Don't know if I'll stay for all of visiting. After all, if things go well, he won't be sick.
Not sure I explained it here....Hubby needs a hernia operation. Waited until it was slower at work. Waited more than a year. It is scheduled for the end of the month.
Hubby also was wondering about an operation for his A fib, which is bad at times.
He went to the specialist for that.
That doctor said, he was a good candidate for the operation, but there was one more new drug that hubby never tried.
If it works, maybe hubby will get another few years and the operation will be even better. This operation was experimental when hubby started having heart trouble over 10 years ago.
Also...if the A fib is acting up, either on the per op day for the hernia, or the day of the hernia operation itself, the operation will be canceled.
So the heart doctor wanted to try the new drug soon.
Oddly the drug was only approved if the patient is monitored in the hospital when they start it for a day or two.
Dr feels it is no more dangerous than any other drug, but that is how it was approved.
Since hubby has tried all the other drugs for the condition and none worked all that well, he was approved to try it.
Goes to the hospital tomorrow.
If the drug doesn't work, I think the heart specialist might do the heart operation before the hernia is scheduled...but maybe the hernia will have to be pushed back a week or two.
So, basically, hubby will be in the hospital for at least a week in total this month.
Now, who is going to tell Rusty why I'm not home????
