Hubby Out Of ICU

wolfen Member Posts: 1,324 Member

Progressing slowly. The infection source was never found and appears to be gone due to the broad spectrum antibiotics. His WBC was 3.2 yesterday. He's still getting Saline, antibiotics, Neupogen. Still chokes on water & not getting much through his feeding tube. I need to check on that. Can't stand alone & still very weak. Voice is a little better, like laryngitis.

Don't know what the recovery plan is yet. Heading out to the hospital soon for more info.

Luv you guys,

    Running the Gauntlet...

    Just unbelievable stuff you're both dealing with....just hoping that things will stabilize enough for both of you to catch your breath.

    "Mama" you can't keep running at this breakneck speed indefinitely....I would imagine the scales are pretty close to tippin' about now...I know you are his only lifeline and your obligations run deeply...and you're a Texan, so you know the loyalty thing and all:)  But, still I know you're hurtin' and very're putting on your brave face though and soldiering through.

    Strength and Courage always seem to come from doing what we have to do - even when we don't want to have to do it:)

    He is very fortunate to have you advocating for him and taking such a pro-active interest.....of course, his interest is your interest:)

    I guess I just can't wait to hear that there is some stability coming for you both.  He must be totally exhausted all the way around from all of this perpetual change.

    Dear Wolfen

    Glad to hear that your dear hubby is out of ICU.  I hope that the doctors will be able to get him feeling some better soonest.

    As for you, young lady, be sure to take care of you.  I know that the love you have for hubby drives you to do everything you can, but you must see to your own health as well.

    Praying for you both,

    Marie who loves kitties

    P.S.  Thanks for the birthday wishes.  I had to give up saying I was 39 when my son passed that age.  Now I just claim to be his "younger" sister!  LOL

    Always in my thoughts and prayers, I think you know that.

    You must look after yourself also, I also have been a care giver for my husbands and it is exhausting.

    I wish you strength( which I understand you have plenty of) and send you  love,

    hugs, Marjan
