We've had a rough couple of weeks, with an escalation of neurological problems with my husband. Two weekends ago, on Sat. morning the 14th (my dd's b-day) he was semi-conscious in bed, a swollen face, not able to swallow or open his eyes or respond to me, except in groans when being moved due to pain. The ambulance came and he went to the hospital. His seizure medicine was too high in his blood and his oxygen level was around 50%, so he was in the ICU for 2 1/2 days, being given straight oxygen, then half-n-half till it got to normal on Sun. He did not know where he was when awoke Sun. He was also suffering from pneumonia, as his WBC was at 20,000.
Then Wed. he came home, but he was still unsteady. We still did not know why his seizure meds. accumulted (liver and kidney tests came back normal).
Then this past Sat., again he was discovered by my son and me on the floor, but this time conscience. His face was swollen (a symptom of something that happens on some mornings, but we don't know why); so we pulled him up and got him into his recliner. All da he had one of his massive neurological headaches that I've seen before, then Sat. night, he seemed fine, though quickly fell back asleep.
Come Sun. morning, I pulled a muscle in my back (please pray for me too)partly due to stress, I think, and having to move and pick-up my husband when he's dead-weight. He told me that he had woken up on the floor. Well, that entire day, he sleeped, or better called "conked out" as he didn't change positions, make any noises or anything-very unnatural. So I called the ambulance again and they took him.
Again, his oxygen levels were to low, but they also found a dime size aneurysm in his brain. His behavior is also disturbing and not connecting with reality.
Now, he has to come within the next day or so and, until the aneurysm heals, he can't fall. Plus, he can't take his pain meds as before because thy are a contributing factor being respiratory depresents.
Please pray that :
G-d heals this aneurysm, causing the brain to absorb it as the brain is prone to do.
G-d would protect him from falling and that my husband will do as he's told for his own good.
financial situation and the accumulating costs
That the doctors find out what's going on in his mind which, according to the EEG's, is showing degeneration and encephalopathy, among other things and get a direction for stabilization.
that I can get the home in order in advance of the safety inspection for recommendations to make a safer environment for him.
the children and me: my back, my temperament, patience, sadness and focus regarding home and school requirements and the children for obvious reasons.
and everything else the G-d knows about that is just much to write here (and tires me out just to type it). Plus, there's a lot of the unknown, too and my concern that things won't get better.
