View Full Version : DH in Hospital

October 29th, 2013, 02:10 AM
I am tired, so thid will be short...

As most of you know, my husband...of over 45 years....is in end stage COPD. To make a long story shorty, I had to call the squad for him today... After being stabilized at a nearby hospital, he was taken to our hospital if choice, and is now in the ICU... He was stable when I left....talking without any problem....as long as he stayed in bed. Standing, and /or walking causes SOB... I hated to leave, because I knew he was scared... Luckily his pulmonologist was on call, so the nurse got to talk directly with him.

I will be heading down to the hospital in the morning.... We will know more when the doctor has seen him... I'm going to call in a few minutes, to talk with his nurse, before I go to sleep. I left a message on our pastor's phone.

Prayers would be appreciated..

Thanks, everyone, for your prayers and good thoughts.

Just talked with DH... The Dr. Has been, and said he will be there at least 2-3 days.... And... He is being moved into a regular room... I waves happy to hear that.

I have watched DH get worse and sires over the past two years...ever dunce he was put on oxygen 24/7. Having been a paramedic, is both a blessing and a curse....as you can imagine.... At the time, the Dr. Gave him 1.5-2 years. We are at the two year mark, almost to the day.... So, I don't know how much mire time we have.... Not enough..... I do know that. DH has a strong faith, and says he is ready, because he knows where he's going..but I can see that he is scared.... I hated to leave him last night. I called his nurse around 2am, and he was resting comfortably... Her words.

Got to go,,,. Thankfully, a friend is looking after the little dogs for me... They love her, and she is crazy about them. That's one less thing to worry about.

Thanks again....
