Exclamation

So they updated me today and they are now saying that he has pulmonary edema which is a sign of cardiac failure not pneumonia. They did an ultrasound of the heart and it was not enlarged but also did a BNP and it was abnormal which is a sign of heart failure. They are doing a cxray now then gonna send it off to a cardiologist for his opinion. If that is negative they are going to sedate him and look in the back of his throat to make sure he hasn't aspirated on anything.
