Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice..
Psalms 63: 7

We were happy to see our older friend Ernie doing much better after we took him to ER the day after thanksgiving shown at the following link:

Ernie, has lost some excess fluid and he is currently on a no salt diet. He is recuperating at the Care Center where they have him doing physical therapy to get his strength back... My husband is sitting on the left side of him at the table holding the magazines that we later gave Ernie for reading material..

    I can't let the ICU nurse in me retire. After reading your description, I followed the link to ER photo. I did a screen capture so I could check his rhythm on the monitor. Looked like he was having a lot of ectopy. When patients show up in the ER, the first thing they do is start an IV, then flood them with fluids. For cardiac patients (which he appears to be) this can be a pretty slippery slope. At times it takes weeks to undo that (unload the fluid) which puts added stress on an already compromised heart. Glad to see he is on the mend.
