It’s my fault that today we had to make two trips to Tyler for tests. I had called our doctor to voice my concerns over Duane’s behavior. In the last week or so his optimistic attitude and energy level plummeted. I wanted to know if this “down” attitude and tendency to sleep instead of do home pt was a natural part of a long recovery or if his medications needed a second look, or if there could be some other concern. Our dr. (I really mean the nurse on dr.’s orders, of course) replied by ordering a lung xray and more bloodwork. To cheer him up I suggested that (we have breakfast out (since breakfast is his favorite meal out) after his fasting bloodwork. His response was so-so. After he ate he said that it “just didn’t taste right.” Hmmm. This evening our dr called again to say that he needed a ct scan of his lungs, which he had this evening. He also is scheduled for a sonogram tomorrow afternoon. I will tell his therapist tomorrow morning what has been going on.
More info as we get it.
