Change is Good

Both Katie and Michael are going to start taking a new heart medication this month as a result of our trip to Johns Hopkins.  They are going to be changing from Atenolol to Losartin.  The first day for Katie was Friday.  Instead of taking one pill per night, she is now going to be taking 1.5.  The first day for Michael was Saturday.  Instead of taking one pill in the morning and two at night, he will now just be taking 1.5 pills at night.  I hope that this will make things a bit easier as they will now be taking the same dosage.  This is due to the fact that their weight is very close to each other.

Michael doesn't seem to be having any problems adjusting to the new medication but Katie was extremely tired today.  She and Todd were out visiting his mom and doing some shopping.  Todd tol me that she fell asleep in the car 3 different times, the first time being at 12:30pm.  That is extremely rare for her and I can think of no other cause than the change in medication.  We will definitely be keeping an eye on her.  The funniest part about it was that she was ready for bed at the regular time after all of those catnaps!  Normally those would result in a really late bedtime.
