Maryanne Posted January 26, 2005 Share Posted January 26, 2005 Hi all, I just want to update you on Joels progress since his surgery on Dec. 15. I might have told you that he has been diagnoised through a blood test with an over active thyroid, that is making him fatigue. He has to see an endocrinologist on Feb 1st. And right now he is talking medication (lopressor) for his accelerated heart rate. I have a call into his doctor as he has been vomiting and gagging. Yesterday, when I came home from work, he was sleeping on the couch. He did not eat anything, just had some juice and some fruit cocktail.. He didn't even finish the milkshake I make for him every night. Which he looks forward too. He told me it is becoming hard for him to even walk. I am really concerned... and I feel so helpless that I cannot help him. He has lost close to 30 lbs, but that could be due to the thyroid problem. Anyway that is it for now. I am home from work today, because I just want to watch him. I don't want to leave him in case the doc wants to see him or if I have to take him to emergency. I really would like to get his vitals checked. This is his 5th week, and i feel that he is slipping as he seemed so much better when he first came home. Even though he was in pain then. Thanks for the ear, Maryanne Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
