At home for just a few minutes more before I head back to the ICU..
They kicked me out last night. Told me to go home and get some sleep for a change. I've been staying with hubby overnight. When he's awake and getting care I'm awake caring for him after the nurses leave. Will be again tonight. Did that make any sense? Sleepy post. Just woke up.
Thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers.
I've only had the chance to read your posts when he's taking a quick nap.
His condition is improving a little. He says it's because all of us have been with him.Our guys are always with him when I need to step out for a break. He's never alone. He gets anxious when he's alone.
So we've worked it out that's never to be alone, and stay vigilant like a Viking when were with him. Were now his Advocates.
His speech is still slurred. He has to relearn how to swallow.
Left arm still refuses to work. Fingers knot up tight. I'm working with the physical therapists to learn how to take care of him, what to do to keep him motivated and working that side. Afibs are slow, I mean really slow to being back to normal. But at least he's not tacking up to 160,175 to 190 any more. That's huge. They were worried he'd have another stroke.
I'm surprising him today with his shaving kit. He's an old fashioned guy when it comes to that. (Floyd's Barber shop) It has a new name (Munky"s shave and bath boutique) "One bed, no waiting." Sounds cheap doesn't it? LOL!!!!
Oh yeah, uh.... He's also going to get a sponge bath to.
That's going to be fun.
WOOOOO---HOOOOO. (Yosemity Sam's--SP)
