    He is on a "Heart Healthy/low sodium diet." Today for lunch they gave him a pulled pork sandwich on a white hamburger bun. Not exactly sure how heart healthy that is.

    Oh, not good...might be better for you to take his food in for him Marie, but I'm pleased that he's rallying... you must be very relieved. I hope he's better very soon...

    Right now they have him on an IV drip saline as he was finding it hard to eat solid food without it being hard to breathe. It will give him calories and hydration.
    Doctor was and said he is doing OK. Just have to get oxygen up

    Might be good to ask for a consultation with the hospital Dietician. Just saline won't give nutrition. Lots of liquid nutritional alternatives available. One frequent scientific criticism of hospital care is that they starve their patients unnecessarily, sometimes actually slowing recovery.

    Doctor came in a few minutes ago. Rick asked about solid food. He is going to have the respiratory spec. Come in. If he can tolerate being off the oxygen mask they will send him in some solid food.
    They had him on the oxygen tube into his nose, but it was not keeping his level up enough. The mask pushes in more oxygen.

    Sorry to hear of all the stress Marie. Hope husband gets better.

    Two friends ended up with afib a couple yrs ago and both were NOT taking adequate magnesium. Do some research and you will see the mag and afib connection. Many are deficient in magnesium and the many worthless MDs don't go there with this issue...sad for sure. I love the holistic medicine life of being on top of what our body needs. And especially as we are aging..body is depleting of a lot and minerals for sure. Take care and get the minerals checked.

    I had heard about magnesium being good for both of us. Will have to get some. I want to do more research on this when I get him back home.

    Oh Marie, I am sorry to read about your husband Rick, you must
    be worried sick, but he is in the right place I suggest.

    You look after yourself and make sure that you eat properly, you
    will be no good to Rick if you get sick too.

    I send some healing and prayers.

    Mike.
