The Endo

“If these women saw a flat tire they would check it’s pressure six times to confirm it needed air before taking action, I’m shocked they were willing to reduce my medication” ~ James Quigley

Headed into the city for a visit with the endocrinology team. MGH was all hustle, no bustle as we narrowly escaped getting into a few scuffs with aggressive drivers intent on making it into the parking garage before us. Jimi insisted that he didn’t need to be dropped off outside the gauntlet of parking mayhem. Considering Jimi is a mere two weeks out of a major surgery and has a 14 inch  incision along is abdomen, the kid is feeling better than ever.

We made our way to the Endo Clinic. Jimi, myself and his mother met with Dr. Y and Dr. S for a post surgery endocrinology update. Both specialists were very impressed with how Jimi was responding to the medication he had been given upon departure from his hospital stay. The pathology had come back from the surgery confirming the tumor was definitely a Pheochromocytoma, same with the lung lymph node that was biopsied.

We have been keeping track of his blood pressure 3 times a day for their review and to our surprise decided to streamline his meds to once a day. Serious progress after the previous 3 times a day, with various combinations of drugs at each meal. Too bad we had only just gotten the hang of that routine! We will see them again in 3 months for another review. Hopefully, there will be further reduction of the beta and alpha blockers!

  13. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!
