UPDATE ON MY HUSBAND - GOOD NEWS! - 1248206

I posted several months ago that my husband was having heart problems. That is much improved. The efficiency of his heart has gone from 25% to 50%. The cardiologist said that 50% is low normal. It turns out that the damage to the heart muscle was caused by sleep apnea. This was resolved by a dental appliance and sleeping on his side. (CPAP gave him claustrophobia.) On the lung cancer front, his last CT scan in July was good, and another isn't planned until November, as he seems to be stable on Avatin/Alimta maintenance for the time being.

Hi Follansbee, It's so good to read this news! :-P

It makes me feel like dancing.

It's so good to have that sigh of relief, isn't it?
