Well, it seems my heart condition (Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy) is finally catching up with me. Today I received the news that I have months to live. I was sick enough that the boys had me in their laps with the IV ready to euthanize, but at the last minute decided against it because the good folks at Dove Lewis were able to bring me back around to almost my normal lovable self by the time they saw me again.
So now I'm on a water pill (Laxixs) and an ACE inhibitor, my Atenolol has been stopped and hopes are this will keep me comfortable during my illness. I am surprised how quickly this happened, this morning I was playing with string and chasing bird shadows, and four hours later I couldn't even stand up.
I have heard the boys planing funeral arrangements, their friend has an orchard in the west hills of Portland which is very peaceful. Personally, I'd would rather be mummified and placed at the foot of the bed.
