Most of you who have followed my story knows what has been going on to this point. Therefore; I won't go into it again, so please go back and read if you haven't heard it. I haven't been allowed to see my husband in over a week now. I receive daily updates on his condition because I'm not allowed to call the hospital myself either; someone from the prison has to give me information. On Friday, I was told he was doing better, vitals were good, more alert, less confused and they were going to leave the chest tube in for precautionary measures. Over the weekend I didn't hear anything due to the fact prison officials are off on weekends. The one I have to talk to anyway. Yesterday, I was told no changes; still more alert, less confused, vitals good. Today, same story. However when I contacted the Chaplain to see if he had or plans to see my husband he mistakingly told me something I didn't know. My husband has been transferred to another hospital. I contacted my liason to ask why I wasn't told. She immediatley wanted to know how I found out. Of course, I didn't tell her. When I asked why he was moved, I was told to receive treatment for his cancer. Of course, I'm thinking; okay they are going to give him more radiation. I contacted the hospital to inquire and spoke with a nurse who told me my husband had gotten worse; he now has three chest tubes, one in the right lung and two in the left. The blood sugar that was so high that required insulin is now ver low. His output is low and he is being kept comfortable with pain medication. How do these people sleep at night knowing they are lieing to family members. I want to believe they don't sleep well at all.
I have retained an attorney, but he wasn't available today. I am hoping to reach him tomorrow.
