Crossing Fingers

Just when we thought we had turned a corner with Connie and his lingering cough (started Zyrtec and Singulair 6 days ago) he woke up last night around 3:30. Not for a wet diaper but to cry out that his "head hurt". He's complained every single day since his pacemaker was changed that his head hurts but usually only says it once and then goes about his business. We were hoping it might be a side effect of the mono hanging on and planned to wait it out a couple more weeks to give the new pacer settings a chance to improve his LV function. Most often, the complaint about the headache comes right after rising-in the morning and after nap. Last night it was literally preventing him from going back to sleep so we brought him to our bed around 3:30. He continued to complain and moan about it even after a dose of ibuprofen and around 5am he vomited up the med. We'd like this to just be nothing, but know in the back of our minds that this could be heart related. Right now he's still sleeping, presumably because he was up so much last night. We'll see how the day goes and keep everyone posted. Please say some prayers today that we can all get over these winter bugs, stay healthy and for his heart to be okay.

Oh, I'm so sorry Connie (and you all) had such a rough night. Hopefully it is just some residual effects of the mono and nothing heart related, but I know it's an awful feeling to be worried about a real possibility. You are in our thoughts today.

Erin,

I was thinking about you yesterday and wondering how Conway was doing. I'll be praying for answers, preferrably answers that are not heart related!

Hang in there~

Our prayers are with you today and always... Just a thought, could his headaches be sinus related, I know Emma complains of her head sometimes and the Dr told us that it was sinus pressure and when she would get up and down it was worse due to stuff moving around... I pray for your family and for Connie to feel better soon, keep us posted on how he is doing...
