When he wakes up, I'm really going to hear about it. The desert is very dry and when they tell you to drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. They MEAN drink 8-10 glasses a day. I forgot, I always forget. D always reminds me, did you drink your water. Well, I had a couple cups coffee, I made that with water.
This morning when I was up at the hospital, I almost fainted on the Dr., to whom I had spoke when I left the night before. Amazed she was still there. Anyway, she asked me, did you eat when you got home? Yes, my friend took to have a sandwich on the way home. Did you drink anything when you got home? Yes, I had 2 cups of coffee this morning. Did you drink your water? Umm...... Juice boxes and big cups of water was brought to me. They hovered close waiting for their next victim.
The good news is, they changed his ventilator tube and his oxygen levels went up to an acceptable level. The bad news, his fever went up. They said they are giving him every antibiotic they have while they wait the results of tests and take even more tests. Basically, for a man that has never been sick for the nine years I've known him, he's very, very sick. That's all the nurse kept saying to me, he's very, very sick.
One of the Dr.s said, he may be sedated and on the ventilator for several days, up to several weeks. That's when I almost made contact with the floor. Let's hope it's the lesser amount.
Since he's heavily sedated and doesn't know I'm there, I came back home. The nurse last night gave me the direct number to their desk, so I will call every few hours to see how he is. I will go back again tomorrow.
Miss Nippit was a bad girl last night and made me chase her around the place several times before she went to her cage. She's used to Pop putting her to bed when he gets home from work. Dammit and Betty were pretty good for me this morning. Miss Bootsie, who is her Pop's cat is a bit beside herself. She just tolerates me as the cat slave.
Mr. Bird succeeded to teach the Littles to warble while I was away yesterday. Shortly after I uncovered them and gave them breakfast, it was pretty loud with bird chirping. Like a whole tree full of Budgies right here in my living room. When they all get to flapping their wings at the same time, it sounds rather like a helicopter about to land.
I'm going to rest awhile. then try to get some things done around here. There's a ton to do. Yes, I'm sitting here with a big glass of water. Then I'll try to remember that food thing which occupies my fridge. The hardest part, is not being able to talk to him and have him respond.
Thank you all for your prayers and positive thoughts.
