I am in the midst of traveling to see my Father,
He recently entered Memory Care. He is 94 with CHF, PVD, TAVR, CHD, AFIB, and Alzheimer’s with dysphagia. He has had one bout of aspiration pneumonia since entering care.
I just got a message about new test results from the doctor at the facility through MyChart. His NT PROBNP has risen from around 7,000 a month ago to 28,500 (!) today. I have googled, but haven’t found a clear answer. What does this all mean?
No one has called me. Also it is a holiday weekend. I am in and out of reception on my phone because of traveling. I would like to know more before I call. Any info on this test much appreciated.
Please know that I understand that I should call the doctor, but because I am a survivor of abuse at the hand’s of my father, who is a retired physician, talking to doctors is a trigger for me. Very stressful. Thanks.
Thank you for updating us. So few return to fill us in and it is great to get updates. Hope things go well for you.
