We are making progress. Barb had her tooth pulled on Wednesday afternoon. Joy took her to the Dentists and I only called for status maybe three times. All went well. The Dentist checked her blood pressure before and after. She used a local without epinephrine pulled the tooth and sutured things up. By the way, I could tell the Cardiac surgeon was not concerned about issues with getting the tooth pulled from a heart stand point. But the Dentist was very careful and concerned and we appreciated the caution..
Barb's cough was much better on Wednesday. A bit more coughing in the evening, but still better. She seems to be feeling a bit more energetic too.
She's still taking the same meds.
