Checking in

Hi everyone:

Patty continues to impress with her health rebound. We visited Midwest Heart today, and they were able to again titrate Patty's dosage for her ACE inhibitor and beta blocker, and are shortening the timeframes between the increases. Provided Patty continues to tolerate these bumps in dosage, they will keep increasing the amounts until she is in a desired range. With the beta blocker in particular, Patty is a long way from the ideal.

The photo to the left was one of many I took of Patty during a recent field trip to Silver Springs State Park. I was so pleased to see Patty in action again, and I know that she feels most complete when she is teaching. She has wished aloud that she could teach full-time again, but I'm pleased that she is phasing back into these demands...no sense tempting fate. Having said this, if her health continues to stand up, she should be able to take on a full schedule next school year.

All things considered, our family is seeing 2007 as a pretty good year...knock on wood.


P.S. Please feel free to share comments, even if the postings here aren't coming fast and furious...Patty still gets excited every time she notices there's a comment.

Aunt Sue says "What a beautiful Picture!" I am so happy for Patty and the whole family. I only check once in a while now. And isn't that great?
Love to all.
