Good news: It's gout and we can treat it.
Bad news: The medicine will make your blood pressure go up so he's now on a blood pressure med. Also a major change in the diet since DH must lose weight. (So on top of wheatless, nothing fried and cut down/out the sugar!)
Friday was spent waiting to hear how DH's medicine was working and labs. We won't hear on any lab results for 2 weeks! That seems like forever but that should give enough time for all of the medicine to work and if anything that requires attention before that she'll call us in. Still it's a long wait and it's hard to watch DH constantly taking his blood pressure and me freaking out with every up tick on the meter. So needless to say it was hard weekend but DH is doing what he needs to and I'm proud of him for stepping up. I'll keep everyone posted.
