I took her back in today for a one-week check-up. She’s definitely feeling better, her appetite is back and she is doing some of her good ol’ Flo things.
But the girlfriend ain’t gonna make things easy. Last week we decreased the digoxin and eliminated one of her heart meds. Partly because she promptly threw-up her breakfast and mostly because her kidney values had changed slightly.
Potential kidney problems are on the radar. Her heart is still beating a little too fast. First step is to get her on a kidney diet to hopefully support her kidneys. Apparently heart disease and kidney disease do not play well in the sandbox together. To treat one, either one doesn’t help the treatment for the other.
