Hubby's stay at home was a very short one. Our son had styed until about 8, & I had to call him back at 10 to move his dad to the commode. He is absolute dead weight & our son could barely do it.
I had noticed a considerable swelling throughout his whole body when I brought him home, but he wanted home so badly. When he was initially hospitalized, his Lasix was removed. It was restarted a week later at my request, but only at a quarter dose. Had I been around for the last four days, I would have seen the signs. I called the second cab of the day & took him to the Phoenix hospital where his cardio practices. He is now in CHF as his heart can't pump off all the fluid.
I stayed until 5 AM, & called another cab to get home. I've postponed the IV infusion team & the Healing at Home rep & refrigerated the $5,000 worth of antibiotics. Going to straighten the family room which looks like Armageddon after all last night's medical deliveries, take a shower & head back to the hospital. And yes, Phrannie Mom, I took my horse pill. LOL
