Waiting for Some Good News
Monday, May 09, 2011
I think it is getting old taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back. I spent another day at the hospital and had hoped I would get to bring DH home tonite but nope, not happening. He was scheduled for his angiogram at 9 but they didn't get him until after 11! I kept bugging nurse who kept bugging someone else! His nephrologist came in and is really concerned with all the dye they have to use on these tests as that is hard on his kidneys. So far we have been ok and they are holding but sure don't want to tempt fate any more.
When his internist came in in the afternoon, they hadn't gotten the test results yet and he wanted to keep him inthe hospital and run more fluids to flush the kidneys really good.
I never did get to talk to the cardiologist or the dietician and finally gave up and came home about 7 as 12 hrs is long enough and day after day it gets really wearing. I guess they are getting tired of watching me walk the halls!
DH called about 9 to tell me the internist came in and told him they are planning surgery on his right leg tomorrow to clear the blockage but I don't know the time yet so will be back there early again tomorrow. I am sure this means the earliest he will get to come home is Thursday-if we are lucky!
Keep those prayers coming-we do need them and some good news that he is doing better and can come home! Abbie & I need him.
