Last night at 1:00 a.m. Carla started coughing again... 3 days on 3 days off seems to be her coughing cycle. Around 3:40 a.m. she woke up to use the bathroom and it hit me that we had a cardiologist appointment this morning at 9:00 a.m. Dr. Ruggerie is not convinced that the cough is pleural effusion related, so told us to have her take 1/4 of a Zyrtek every day for 5 days and see how that works. As far as her chest x-ray went, she once again has fluid on her right lung...it looked a little less to me than before, but I'm not sure. It for sure is less than it was in May though, so I'm hoping that means the low fat diet is working. Her oxygen level was at 89, and her weight was 30.6. Her coumadin level was at 2.2, which is right where he wants her to be, so that is great. We will just continue to pray that Carla's thoracic duct heals and that her pleural effusion goes away and never returns! Love, Jen
