TD has another lung infection and with him it is like the domono affect.
The lung infection is just beginning and I could not hear the rattle that was beginning in his chest. I knew with the other medical problems he has that something was up and called Mandy his in home care nurse. Thank God for her. She is a blessing as are his in home care givers.
Lung infection caused lungs to restrict and affected his breathing, which affected the aphasia and bels palsy. This caused the left side of his face to droop and his speach to slur.T he good thing is none of this affected his heart.
His blood sugar is way up and we expected that as when he is sick his blood sugar goes way out of sight. The blood sugar is easily controlled through taking his blood sugar four times a day and measuring the amount of insulin needed.
So he has a PCC Line again and an antibiotic drip. I
It was to late get home last night so we just stayed in the motel next to the hospital and came home this morning.
I told him packing for a trip with him is worse than when I had kids and he just chuckled and grinned at me. I keep an emergency bag, well several bags, in the car for him, in case something like this happens.
When we got home in home care giver got him in the apt, and settled in and I replaced his emergency supply for our next adventure:)
Ali is not speaking to me as she was left home alone last night and is not one bit happy about it. She turned her back on me when I came in and Andy, in home care giver, told me when he came in to feed her this morning she turned her back on him too and she did not eat.
The minute she saw TD she started meowing and calling, and the minute he was sitting down she was on his lap checking him out. She was very indignant when TD was in bed with the IV drip running and in home nurse would not let her in the room til she had TD all settled.
Once he was settled TD called her and she made a leap onto the bed and on his chest to make sure he was alright.
She did allow me to feed her:):) and now she is snuggled up with TD purring.
TY all for your prayers, and as always we so appreciate you all.
