Latest in this saga on hubby

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Tomorrow will be another heart cath-that is 2nd Sunday he has had to have one but hoping this time they can find out what is going on and get it fixed for good. I am dealing with another cardiologist as his regular one is not on call this weekend. Luckily his internist is so I have him to guide things. I don't know how people manage who don't have someone to help get things done. Dr ordered his BP meds held earlier since his pulse was very low but then his BP got too high - 172/114 - so he released it about 10 am but pharmicist wanted to wait since it was late and give it with his nite meds! Well, I pushed and pushed and nurse finally got it for him but what if I hadn't been there to do that, he certainly would not have bugged them. Then dr also ordered the scan in the am and they didn't do that till 4 PM and only after I asked about it several times! I think they overlook things as nurse argued with me about the medicine so I told her to call the dr as I knew what he had told me!!!
This afternoon he got a roommate who isn't quite all there-they have a sitter with him 24/7 and he never shuts up so hoping hubby can get some sleep tonite. I wish they had put him in a room by himself as no matter who got him for a roommate it would not be a good scene. We asked for a room change but hubby decided to let it ride if they were going to sedate him tonite. If things are bad tomorrow, I will get to work on that one. I will talk to his dr who can make things happen!
Now, it is off to bed as I am tired and have to get up early again. Poor little Abbie thinks life is all messed up, I keep leaving her with different friends while I am gone for 12 or more hours and when she gets home she keeps looking for her daddy so she will be happy when he gets back home.
Happy Mother's Day to all.

    Sending prayers and good thoughts to you both. I hope they find the answer soon so that you can get back to normal. Good job on keeping on the medical staff to do the right thing for your husband - he's fortunate to have such a great wife!

    Oh, Pat, just hang in there. Things will straighten themselves out soon enough. But it is really great that you are there to advocate for him. Crucial, in fact. So keep your eye on what's going on to make sure everything's under control. (You can rest some other time:))

    Blessings through these stressful times --

    My heart goes out to you and you go through this difficult time. It's difficult when the person you advocate for is someone you love. You and your dh will be in my prayers.
