We're having one of those lazy summer days today! The weather here is beautiful, Trent's off work and we're hanging out around the house as a family! We all hung out in the yard this afternoon and Teagan got to wear her first bikini! ha.. (Trent says its her first, and last! :) )
The cardiologist on wed. said that we can begin to wean Teagan off of her Propanolol. This is the heart medicine she's been on for the SVT runs she was having in the hospital. So by wed. of next week we should be off of it! We may end up going back on it if she needs it, but for now its one less medicine! She's still on several medications though, here's our current schedule:
8am= Captopril 1.3ml, Propranolol .25ml, lasix .4ml, zantac .4ml
2pm= Captopril 1.3ml, Propanolol .25ml
8pm=Captopril 1.3ml, 1/4 baby aspirin, lasix .4ml, zantac .4ml
10pm= Propanolol .25ml
The formula that Teagan needs due to her digestive issues is really expensive. It costs anywhere from $26-$30 per can depending on where we buy it! One can only lasts 4-5 days right now and as Teag eats more it won't even last that long! I found out on friday though that the local WIC office is going to help us cover most of the formula for whole year! They're giving us 8 cans per month!! Normally we wouldn't qualify for any assistance but Teagan has been classified as 'categorically needy' and we are so thankful for the help!
We're looking forward to a fun Father's Day tommorrow!
