First of all thank you so much for you well wishes and kind comments. It meant so much to come and read them at a time when I feel so alone. I sat down and cried while ready them. I've been on the edge of tears since about midnight.
They couldn't get oxygen stabilized on the regular unit. It took til almost midnight to get a room open on ICU, where they transferred him. He's currently sedated and on a ventilator while they try to figure things out. I'm half out of my mind with worry.
Just to let you know, I do have my next door neighbor and the lady I met on Ravelry, looking out for me. My neighbor saw my post on FB and called my cell at the hospital and gave me a ride home to check on the animals. Which I used that time to post, then caught the bus right back up. A, the lady from Ravelry, stayed up and brought me home at midnight. She stopped at Denny's and made me eat something on the way home. I'm really blessed to have those two.
D got to experience my private duty nursing experience first hand, while we waited the six hours for him to be transferred to ICU. I might have made the nurses a little nuts when I kept running out to the desk advocating for his needs to be met. We'll see how he rates me when he's conscious again. I did tell him, I used to get paid $18.00 an hour for this 12 years ago, and he gave me a smile.
I didn't get much nervous knitting done while jumping up to turn off alarms and attending to him. Plus, his roommate was from a drug rehab, had a fall and wasn't supposed to get out of bed, as he was very unstable and sounded like he was going through DT's. His bed alarm wasn't working right and he kept jumping out of bed and stumbling around. So, I had to run out and get a tech to come help him. I feel like I put in a full shift tonight.
After taking a closer look at the cardi, I think I might rip it back. Will try it on in the morning and take a good look in the mirror before I do. It'll probably be good therapy to do so, anyway. Working with this yarn is such a pleasure, so soft. Those of you who are process knitters will understand.
Will post when I know anything more. Thank you so much for all your well wishes, they are very much appreciated. It makes me feel not so alone.
PS. Please excuse any typos and my bad grammar right now. My lurker/editor is unconscious at the moment.
