Progress today but not in chronological order: We identified a Cardio surgeon and made an appointment for tomorrow morning at 8:45 AM.Dr Baron Hamman at Baylor University in Dallas. Got Xrays of her teeth and identified the need to pull the abscess tooth. Got a prescription written by the dentists and filled for Amoxicillin. Got a letter from the dentists for the Cardiologist asking for any necessary precautions on anesthetics etc when pulling the tooth. Went to the GP and had Barb checked out a bit to make sure she is still stable. Barb has a temp of 100.1. Need to get that cleared up quickly or no surgery. Doc thinks Amoxicillin will take care of it and OKs use of Mucinex for Barb's cough. Also traded test reports. One of which is the echo cardiogram from October which says things were normal. This report said the estimated Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction was 65%. The current report says the LVEF is now 25%. Huge drop from October to May. Perhaps people need monthly tests?
