Topic: Update on my husband
Well since I last posted my husband has started falling a lot. He is now in a wheel chair. Since last Thursday evening he's been running fevers during the night. He gets the chills really bad. When the fever kicks in he can't seem to stand at all and has a grad time setting up also the confusion gets really bad.
He's down to 118 pounds. He gets the hiccups nonstop. Sometimes they last over an hour they go away for an hour and they're right back. This can happen with an enkarged liver. They say it presses on a nerve and it will cause the hiccups.
I feel so bad setting here watching him suffer. He looks so sad all the time. He still wants out of bed to set in his recliner which is nice.
It's really sad how much suffering one goes through. Just don't see the fairness in it all
As for me i am lucky if i get 2 hours a sleep a night. Always on guard making sure he's not trying to get out of bed on his own. Or around midnight is when he will spike a fever. They have been about 102. So far Tylenol is helping break his fever. Also rotating cold wash clothes every 10 minutes helps a lot too.
Hospice told me Thursday he probably had a few days til a week left ut they said with him being so strong willed its hard to tell. He sure is a fighter.
Prayers and hugs go out to all,
