My husband is VERY ill in Intensive Care
Most of day at hospital,
and only I just got home.
He is very ill and will not know until morning if he will require surgery.
Needed IV antibiotics for a bad abdominal infection.
On continuous insulin drip because his sugar was 595.
Didn't even know he was a type one diabetic.
I am as most know;
totally disabled.
Our income is my small disability income.
This is a nightmare to say the least.
No one to help.
No insurance either.
May be days there.
I just needed to vent or go mad.

PS.
And I am ill with a nasty bug to boot.

Are the laughing icons intentional or a slip?
Seriously laughing icons are not on my mind.

Hearing words like critical in the ER and ICU are bad.
I am scared really scared.
I need to sleep but I cannot.
I am fraking worried out of my mind.
I am so tired and sick and my meds are not helping much.
Going to go throw a big screaming crying fit.
AAaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now I feel worse.
I was too ill to stay with him this early morning.
My disabilities were affecting me too much.

My legs and body were giving out on me from the stress to my neurological damage and being too long at the ER without my meds or eating and sitting too long.
They had to wheel me to the bathroom and all.
Bad enough they wanted to admit me to the hospital too.

From a December 23, 2011 thread;
a bit over a year ago.
http://www.linda-goodman.com/ubb/Forum25/HTML/002974.html
Re-posting the following entire post from way back then:

My husband of over 14 years to date,
is still my best friend.
And this evening he posted this at fb.
Such a sweet and compassionate "gift".

quote:
Dear Santa, any Gods, or any Doctor that will listen... this Christmas all I want is for my partner to be healthy. There's been too much pain, too many tears, too much...just...too much. "Enigma" they call her. The E/R does nothing. Doctors so far have/can do nothing - just off-hand diagnoses and more pills. I want her tears of pain to turn to tears of relief. I want the pain in her abdomen to turn into butterflies of anticipation and excitement. I want her to lay in bed, not groaning in agony with hot packs and Vicodin, but with a gracious, tender lover. Neither of us can take much more of this... pending divorce or not, this wish has nothing to do with our situation - it's purely inhumane how she's having to live and all I can pray for is her return to some form of health in which she can smile instead of moan. I want us to have answers instead of fear. Amen.

Sigh.
Life is very hard for us both, it is all we can do to hang on,
and he is often in disabling pain too.

I just wanted to share this gift of love and caring and hope everyone appreciates their good health if they have it,
and appreciate sincerely those in their lives that care and love them.

Must go for now.
It has been a very bad body day,
and I am very tired and weak trembling.
Love and Blessings to All!

Please send healing energies for my husband.
On top of his new woes, he has seizures and severe depression.
Please send wishes for me to have the stamina to get through this.
My being disabled is being a real problem.
I had to leave him and come home for my meds
and all so my body will not go wonkyier.
They also do not let folks stay all night, no matter how ill.
I hate fraking hospitals.

Hang in there. Not been in your shoes but yet I've been down that road in ICU more times than I care. In the way I know how, I'll pray for you. My best wishes.

Thank you Lexx

I looked up "compassion" on internet and found a link on the wikipedia's page to a lecture of the Dalai Lama on compassion

It will not make disapear your suffering, but I would not have found it without you that is why I thank you.

May you find the strength to sail through this and your husband too

Sorry you are going through this awful stuff! I'm glad that your husband is being taken care of. Maybe he can go on disability too, now? It's not my business, but I'm hoping on your behalf that good comes out of this.

Glad you two are not divorcing.

Thanks for keeping us posted, hope you both get better soon!

Waiting for hospital to call so will not reply to all you kind folks
individually at the moment.
Latest news is he has stabilized a bit and the three types of IV antibiotics seem to be working so hopefully he will not need surgery.
His sugar went from 595 down to 80.
I must go rest a bit and do my pain and antispasmodic meds so I can go see him later.
Thank you all for the caring and listening to me.{{{hugs}}}
I would be losing it otherwise.
Feel like I am in a nightmare fog.
Once I feel I can relax I will let myself feel it all and purge.
But now I feel dazed shocked and numb.
Thank you all again.
Love and Blessings to all of you!

Oh Lexxi *GREAT BIG HUGS*

I'm glad his condition is more stable. I'm sending positivity and Love and blessings and prayers both yours and your husband's way. Keep your chin up the best you can. It sounds like your love is very strong and that will help you guys get through this more than anything. Love is the strongest force in the universe!

Of late, I`ve spent an over abundance of time in ICU too so I know the angst.

Prayers for his rapid and complete recovery.
