Friday-Oct 16,2009,, My husband, Richard is still in the hospital.

My husband was admitted to Charlotte Regional Hospital on Wed. eve, Oct 14 ,2009.

He was in respatory distress,(very short of breath), had high blood pressure,( BP 213/1I4), . His heart was very irregular, his pulse was fast( 122-132)normal is (72-80) and oxygen level was only (92),normal is 98-100. He had A temperature of 102.

He is on the telementry unit at the hospital and his heart is contantly monitored as well as his blood pressure and pluse. He has been diagnoised with Pnuemonia and Atrail Fibulation. He is still weak, very short of breath and has continous oxygen at 3 liters and is receiving breathing treatments, antibiotics. His heart rate remains irregular,but has slowed down to about 90-100 beats per minute. This is still too fast for him.( He has a metal aortic valve).

He's getting cardiac meds and antibiotics via IV'S to try to stabilize his heart. The Doctor thinks they might have to shock his heart to get it back to normal sinus rhythum. This was done before in Nov 2006 and he's been on medication to help maintain a steady heart rate since then. They do not know why this happened, nor are they sure of his prognosis at this time.
The top part of his heart is not working together with the bottom part of his heart. This is controlled basically by the sino artrial node, (the pace maker of the heart).

They are doing an ulrta sound of his heart On Friday. He hasn't been eating much and is not drinking many fluids.
He is better than when he was admitted, but we are still quite concerned about his condition.

They say that out of darkness, comes light. I have learned from his unfortunate illness, that my long term memory is still in tact in nursing skills. I'm able to help and contribute to his care in many ways. This has really helped me to realize my potential and not let Alzheimers subdue the inner me.

Many thanks for your wonderful prayers and continued readings of my work...May Gods light shine on you...MaryGrace

Hi MaryGrace, I think of you a lot and pray that your husband will get better. I know this is a stressful time for you, and hope with God's help you will be strong until things settle down some. Take care of you as best you can because you are no good to anyone unless you keep in good shape yourself. Blessings to you and for your dear husband.
