Just a quick update.  Dad is holding steady.  He is still on the dopamine and his blood pressure has perked up some, but still is sometimes very bad.  The nurse told me yesterday that sometimes at night his lower number gets into the low 20's!  Very scary!  Last night it was 94/40 as an average when I was there.   It would go up and down.  They have him so it check his BP every 15 min.

But he was feeling a little better because he took a swing at the nurse yesterday.  She and Sara were adjusting his position and low and behold he swung at the nurse.  Suprised her.  Then she told him that she  was going to tell his daughter that he tried to hit her and he laughed.

Anna was there late last night and the TV was off so she turned it on and as far as she could tell he was asleep.  So she was changing channels and she passed by a baseball game. When she changed the channel he made an angry grunting noise at her.  So she turned it back to the game and he opened his eyes and looked at the game and closed his eyes and was happy.  So she got to watch the Detroit game for an hour.

I just spoke with the nurse and she said the cardiologist was just there and they are going to try to discontinue the dopamine and see what happens today.

Will keep you posted.

Love and hugs from Texas.
