Re-cap from yesterday's visit to B&W for his regular post-op clinic visit: Pat's spirometry test: (this is a measure of lung function) functioning is almost identical to the last measure on Nov. 21, 2016 which was improved and are NORMAL! The team is very pleased with the lung functioning. Pat's kidney function is slightly improved, but still not where it needs to be. Due to the now prolonged poor kidney function. Pat is experiencing some swelling in his ankles. So he be wearing the fashionable support knee-hi "stockings" again. Pat is gaining weight now that his swallowing is easier and he is on a "mechanical soft" diet. During the appointment Pat and Val, (the PA) took a few minutes to reflect on Pat's dramatic health improvement. Val agrees, it's a miracle.
