Almost One Year

Time is flying by and they tell us 2013 is his year!  That narrows it done to 12 months :p  In the meantime, he has been doing well.  He's walking for exercise, keeping any additional weight off - whether fluid or otherwise.  He keeps the weight between 226-229.  I think the walking more regularly has really helped this - keeps them kidneys perfused and working better.

His INR has been a little wonky this past week or so.  It shot up to 4 a few days ago so had to adjust his coumadin a bit.  Mayo gets concerned about clots in the pump or GI bleeds when they start seeing this happen.  He hasn't had any other symptoms to indicate a problem.  After some adjustment, it's back to a normal range.
