The surprise element probably a good thing @Shaz51. No time for Mr Shaz to stew over things.

went out for dinner last night
@Darcy, about mr shaz not saying anything yesterday , but last night he said a few things which I had to try to reassure him that everything is going ok
he is anxious about starting the MI treatment again , he does not want to go through it all again , and he i worried if they want to change things
before he hurts his shoulder , he was liking our daily pattern but now he is unsure what is going to happen
Mr shaz has to have an xray this week sometime to find out if it is torn or broken
the doctor gave 2 meds to help him with the pain and he is sleeping all day and I think they are affecting him and with his MI meds too

@Shaz51 I'm happy to hear you went out for dinner last night. Good that you didnt have to cook or prepare the meal, but also good for both of you to get out.
Sounds like possible change to MI treatment as well as injury uncertainty is very unsettling for Mr Shaz, and is understandably causing increased anxiety. Change and uncertainty is never easy.
Hoping the xray this week uncovers the least troublesome outcome of the two possible options. In some respects, a simple break is quicker to recover from, than is torn tendons or ligaments. Meanwhile I hope the pain meds keep his pain to a sufferable level.
So how are you going? Is the antibiotics having an affect yet? I hope you can find time in your busy and stressful day for a little bit of relaxation and self-pampering. You deserve that too you know.

You can check for drug interactions just put two of the drug names into computer with the word 'interaction' after. A few sites will come up - there are some specific for checking known adverse effects between meds (vs specific scholarly articles). There will be an edit button where you can add or change meds on list.

Usually if a patient is stable, pdocs will not change things @Shaz51 esp given our loved ones histories. The twin had terrible trouble, howling in pain and emotional distress in relation to his injury and surgery but his psych meds were kept the same. In all of the things that happened Mr D did not become suicidal. Perhaps ask Mr Shaz to be completely honest with you in that regard ...
It was only when Mr Darcy had adverse events relating to his heart that one of his meds is being very slowly tapered.
