Update: as you know, nothing goes as planned. Three days before we were to move out, Feb. 3.-Joe was not feeling well. I got him to go to thee ER, we were thinking maybe panic attacks.
He was in atrial fibrillation,(AF). Not only that he has cardiomyopathy, his heart function was only 10%. Long story short, over this last week-he is still in AF, can't get it stopped. He will be having a cardio conversion tomorrow.
They must stop that first in order for his heart to get stronger. It has been a very long week, one in which I had to figure out how to pack and move, close on the our house without Joe. Find a place to live here & then close on our house in Florida.
To say this has been a stressful week is an understatement!
Good news is that the docs feel that Joes AF is not hereditary and that the cardiomyopathy is caused by the AF and not a virus or other degenerative disease.
This means that once they can stop the AF, the hopes are that his heart will start to repair itself to a more normal function.
I have been living at the hospital, the dogs are at my friends kennel Debbie McNabb's. I got power of attorney and managed to close on both properties and my family helped me get moved and put our belongings in storage. We are hoping Joe will get out in the next week, they say he can follow up in Florida! THEN we can move!
The girls in our friends kennel...having play time!
