Hunter63....up date
« on: February 27, 2018, 07:12:55 AM »

This is the first time I have online since my ride in the Red and White bus on 2/9

Word of advice ....Don't go to hospitals...they will kill ya.
At home....now...... but I"M so weak I am having a major problem getting to my feet that I have visiting nurse coming tomorrow to discuss secret ninja ways of getting me up.

Maybe spend some time in (shudder) rehab/assisted living.....but not for anything fun.

Oddly enough I walked to the big red bus 12 day ago ...and was moving around fairly well ?????right up to this morning.

So that is where I stand(or sit)....won't really get into more details until I can find out what's going on.
Lots of possible reasons but kept coming up with more and different stuff........Most all brought on medication from the day before???
................... ................... ...
2/27
Well time check in......lasted one day at home....just really weak...had a problem getting around ....little stuff like getting in an out of recliner, a bathroom.....
Soooooooo after some close calls, decided to do the therapy in rehab......
Not sure what is going on....but the weakneww seems to have come from overloading me with IV until couldn't lift my leg off a bed....?????

Soooooo...after a week I can now sit-up in bed....and go to the restroom by myself......
Two rehabe ladies....with a goal and a mean streak working the the carp out of me....but is helping.

Been tough and interesting...they kinda force you into submission. them they set you straight.

Never ever though I would ever be this helpless....

Survival is more them what pack or knife to buy.....more about choosing what assisted living facility.....LOL... ..

Seems like it will be a while yet..... .

Well add more later.....off to the breakfast.

Thanks again to one and all.......good to know you have friends............ ...

I know it sucks. Keep your head up. Remember you can always pm or email any of us if you need to talk off forums.

I hate hospitals too. It seems some of the nurses should be doctors, so caring and helpful. Others not so much.

Just got a call from H63's wife.  He is not doing so well.  Currently he is in ICU in a medically induced coma with a ventilator and feeding tube.  Please keep him in your prayers.

I sure hope he 'turns the corner'!  An induced coma is scary but sometimes it's the best option.  Poor guy has been through a lot of health issues so I hope they can get him sorted out.  Still pulling for you, Hunter63!

I do not.  When I spoke to his wife she was at the hospital.  She put the phone so he could hear and I let him know that we were all rooting for him.  He was not able to speak (probably irritated from the ventilator).

Almost lost him earlier this week.  They put the feeding tube in and he's still fighting.

Illustrates my perspective on 'modern' medicine. The Creator makes parts that last 60-100 years. We're lucky if replacement parts last 6 years.....
