So glad to see the update!

 

How is your son doing?  My guess is that the two of you are great supports to each other - but situations like these are just so, so hard for all.

 

Sending lots more strength to all of you.

Hope things stabilize today. I know the first days after surgery can be harrowing. Take care of yourself. It's ok to take a break, feed yourself, breathe, rest.

Having someone in ICU can be an absolute rollercoaster emotionally. We're all thinking of you and your family. It sounds as though the doctors are on top of this problem. Take one issue at time. Try to get some rest if you can, both of you. (So easy to say, I know.) Do you have another adult with you for moral support? Best wishes always.

Iam continuing with prayers for your family.  Do try and get some sleep.  You need it to support your husband.  Hospitals are difficult places to get a rest but maybe you could leave for a while or take turns with your son to go get rest at a hotel or at a place like Ronald McDonald house?

I'm hanging out with my oldest dd who is currently hospitalized for uncontrolled diabetes. Trying to work out new dosages of insulin. I woke up early and couldn't sleep and thought of you. I'll continue to keep all in my prayers. I hope you and ds got some sleep last night.

 

Sending good thoughts your way, too, Rebecca; I hope answers are ahead for your daughter's dosages.

 

Regards,

Kareni

I'm only online for a minute but I wanted to post an update. Things were scary last night, but the doctors seem to have solved the issues and today has been a much better day. Dh had a bad reaction to the medication they use to suppress the immune system, but apparently it was a common reaction and they knew exactly what to do for it.

One of the surgeons came in from his home twice last night -- even in the middle of the night -- to check on dh. I thought that was amazing. He is so nice!

Tomorrow, dh is having another surgery so they can do the final closure of his incision. It was supposed to be done today, but the doctors wanted to wait an extra day because of the issues last night. They said a day of rest would be better. I thought that was a good idea.

I'll try to post more later. You are all being so kind, and I don't want you to think I'm ignoring you!
