May 29 – Waiting and anticipating. Increased the dosage of milrinone – doctor said to a ‘normal’ dosage level – to see how R adapts. So far so good but it will take a few days for the full dosage to take a grip. A patient friend of hers went home this evening. An elderly man who was also a doctor at one time many years ago. It was decided he was too old for a transplant so they sent him home with a milrinone infuser – which is what R might come home with in a few days. He said he did some research – said that milrinone is usually not prescribed for more than 3 years to heart patients. He has a little bag on his hip with the meds and the pump that will automatically inject the med through a PICC or Hohn connection. Hope he does ok. So Wed is when the liver biopsy report is scheduled to be complete – we wait with anticipation. Either she can or can’t be put on the list for transplant. Either way, we are a bit scared and unsure of what the future will hold. Prayers for peace, please.
