Eric was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure due to a virus.
Eric's heart needs to relax and decrease in size. They are working in kind of a reverse order to get this to take place. Lowering his heart rate and BP so that the heart is not working as hard. Once this happens they will try and let the heart regain strength hoping that it will work properly after that.

As with everything you have good days and bad days. Yesterday, was a good day and his stats were high and looked really good. The procedures that were done over the last couple of days seemed to be doing their job.
Today things seemed to fall a bit and his numbers were not as good, but the Doctor said that he did not fall back too much and that he is still looking good. The next 24 hours will be a time for Eric to be watched closely so that they can know what needs to happen next.
We are so very grateful for each of you and thank you for all your thoughts, prayers, love, and support. We have truly felt your prayers. We know that our Father in Heaven is mindful of Eric and his situation, we must show patience and faith during this affliction.
Please check back for daily updates and please leave comments, these comments will be read to Eric to help and lift his spirits.
