Lesley, glad that Himself got a better sleep and hope that meant you did too. You'd better warn him this could happen if he doesn't eat his food: xxx
Happy to hear Janey about your lovely girl, still sending you and her lots of hugs. xxx
Lesley....maybe dig out that saucy nurses outfit you have stashed away and put it on ? Might get him eating ?
Yay Janey, so relived for you. Obviously virus not good but much better than a clot.
Lady H, you’ll beat hospital now so probably won’t see this until it’s over and done with, sendin* love via 5he 5her to you xx
himself managed the best night last night since the whole thing started. He’s back in a great deal of pain this morning though and unlike the nurses I can’t persuade him to eat anything. I’ll leave him for a few hours then insist, the amount of drugs going into him it’s imporatant he eats whether h3 want# to or not.
Thank you all for your support. Hope you’re all enjoying the lovely weather. They’ve been forecasting rain here for the last few days but it’s still back to back sunshine xx
Oh that's lovely news Janey! You must be so relieved, it's hard to be so fair away when something like that happens. But at least your sister is there, that is very reassuring that she'll be properly looked after.
Hope you can enjoy the rest of your week off.
Lesley, I hope you and himself had a good night's sleep, and he's back to health and pain free quickly.
Oh my dear I really hope it is good news tomorrow for your lovely daughter xxx
Thank you darling and I am so very glad to hear that hubby is home, nothing like being in your own bed to help you recover.
Sending you hugs
Helena, hope you sleep well tonight and all goes well tomorrow, sending tons of love
Lovely Janey, thinking of you and your lovely girl. So glad you've got your sister to help. All my love and thoughts to you and your family. xxx
Really, really happy to hear that Himself is back in his own bed Lesley - hopefully you'll both get a good night's sleep. Think I'd need a suitcase to put all those pills in and a tick sheet to remember what to take and when. xxx
Really quick pop in as not in Long getting himself home from hospital albeit armed with a carrier bag of drugs. Pnemonia and other infections all under control but got a course of antibiotics and steroids, plus muscus drug, 3 types of painkillers and thankfully bottle of liquid morphine and extra strong inhalers, with that lot plus his normal drugs we both hopefully we get some sleep tonight. They said he’ll in in considerable pain for some time and needs complete rest for a while.
Oh Janey, so sorry, what a worry and so far away, couldn’t get further. So glad your sister is close at hand, that’s some comfort at least. I’ll be sending good vibes down under xx
Lady H, I’ll be tucked into a flap of the big pants tomorrow along with I’m sure all the rest if the fluffy Willows xx
Helena, I shouldn't think you're likely to get results tomorrow if they take biopsies. But they should be able to tell you what the camera shows.
It's a good idea taking an overnight bag, I wished I had after the last operation, those hospital gowns left me feeling a bit insecure...but hopefully you will be fine, going down in the morning gives you longer to recover.
But bless you, this has dragged on a long time, so I hope you get the answers quickly.
Ruby, I'm glad to see we have plenty of big girl pants in reserve!
Lesley, I hope everything is okay, I've been thinking about you today.
Lee, thinking about you too.
My lovely fluffies
Thank you all so much for your best wishes, I am really hoping that they will be able to tell me tomorrow and that it is all good news, feeling very nervous now, but about to go off and play bowls so that will distract me for a while.
Will let you all know tomorrow when I am back home. Had to go out and buy a pair of jimjams as I have none and they are still insisting that I come prepared to stay over if necessary and I am insisting I am coming home tomorrow.
Lesley, special big hugs to you and Himself - hope he is feeling a little better.xxx
Helena, spent whole day washing so that there are plenty of spare pants. Will be with you all the way tomorrow. xxx
Good H, tomorrow morning, they've fitted you in nice and quickly. Like Jill, I am hoping they can very quickly let you know the outcome as you've had one hell of a tough few weeks. x
All the best Helena for Wednesday.
That's good news Helena, I'm sure all will be well , pull those knickers up high! will be thinking of you Xx
Well had a call from the hospital today asking me if I could come in on Wednesday at 7.30am, of course I said yes,
Oh my word Lesley !
FLippin eck, yep that makes sense how dangerous that was with his blood being thin and the break etc. The combination could have been catastrophic. However, thats the past, he is in the right place and I'm sure they will patch him all up and get him back to you to cause more trouble !!!!
Lesley, you must be completely drained, what a day. I should think you need that glass of wine.
Hopefully he'll improve now he has antibiotics and oxygen and some decent pain relief. Fingers crossed for you both that tomorrow is a better day, we'll be thinking of you.
Oh my he is going through it, but the good thing is he is in the best place and they will get him sorted xx
Hopefully in future he will not be so stubborn and let you call the doctor when he is unwell, they are just amazingly obstenant. If I am poorly then I get nothing but grief off Colin to go to the doctor, but the other way round is a totally different matter.
Enjoy your wine and sarnie, I am sure you will sleep well tonight you must be absolutely knackered, please make sure that you look after yourself my dear
Sending you loads of hugs
Evening all, and thank you all for your lovely kind words of support,
Finally home from hospital with a large glass of vino in front of me, it’s been a long long day, left here just after 10am this morning. Firstly, inr is the thickness of blood, His has to be thinned by taking warfarin, his count needs to be an Inr count of around 2.5, higher the count the thinner the blood so 5.8 was extremely dangerous, he was highly likely to suffer internal bleeding, and that’s without a moving broken rib.
As they said last night, pneumonia, Lung and chest infection, heart rate very erratic very high temperature, plus after X-rays they’ve found rib actually broken (not just cracked) and trust him in two places so the bit inbetween the breaks is freewheeling around, hence the excruciating pain plus the danger of damage internally. They said there’s not usually anything you can do to repair ribs it’s just time but in this case it’s risky so he needs to see a bone specialist though not sure what can be done. He’ll see specialist tomorrow. In the meantime he’s on an antibiotic drip, oxygen mask, morphine every two hours plus another drip (not sure of what) and various other drugs to try and regulate his heart. He’s still in a lot of pain and breathing not too good but a much better colour. I have to say they really are looking after him. They did say lucky he got there when he did.
Going to finish vino then make a sarnie and try and get some sleep. Thank you all again for caring xx
Hope you have all had a lovely day.
Lesley - hope hubby is starting to improve. How are you doing my lovely? xxx
Lesley, I hope you've got himself back home, or at least that he's on the mend. And hopefully you've managed to get a lift to the hospital today. Sending love and hugs
Wow, you miss a few days and so much going on ! Lesley.....my goodness......what a time of it with your husband. What is lnr by the way? I hope by today things are improving, it must have been horribly frightening. Doesn't he have a phone he can message you on himself ?
I sure hope everything is ok, as I see theres no message from you today.
Oh Lesley, what a nightmare. So hope you got a bit of sleep. Is there anyone around today who could get you to the hospital? Much love to you and Himself.xxx
Well he is in good hands now and they will be pumping him full of anti biotics which will soon start to take effect.
Wasnt it lovely, her dress was stunningly simple, i loved it. Yes the minister was very entertaining but then we all knew it was going to be a very different wedding
Are you ok my friend xxxx
Update - hospital just phoned me. Theyve admitted him to the acute medical ward, pnemonia, infection, Inr 5.8 (should be 2.5) scan in the morning to check for internal bleeding. So much for the gp saying rest and take painkillers.
Did you all watch the wedding? Loved her dress, thought it was stunning, enjoyed the whole wedding though think the American minister made the most of his role, the look on the faces of the guests made me laugh, not really the British thing xx
Oh my dear that is awful,
The medics ere correct though you staying where you are until they sort him out.
Please dont be angry at yourself, you have been through so much it is no wonder you will get there in time
Have you heard anything since your last post xxxx
Oh mate you do not need that on top of everything else, but you are so so right about tamoxifen.
I am hoping that I will know next week when I will be going in xxx
Aw, thank you for comforting words. No Janey, of the two people I could have asked to take me over to the hospital, one is away on a glamping weekend, the other is at a party tonight. All himself’s friends will have a pint or five watching the football. My sister is in the States as her daughter there is very poorly, mind you, she lives in Wales so not exactly on the doorstep for lifts. Just poured a large vino, probably not the best thing to do but got to toast the bride and groom xx
Lesley, that sounds horrible, waiting and wondering. I really hope you get good news soon. Would you feel happier if they keep him in overnight? Either way, you've had a difficult time recently.
Sending you a hug, and hope you hear something soon.
Hope you’re all enjoying this lovely sunny day. I’m having a pretty bad day. Enjoyed watching the wedding and was thinking about dinner when Himself took a turn for the worse, phoned 111, spoke to a doctor and once again an ambulance arrived within 10 minutes. Here for over an hour doing various checks then phoned doctor back at base. Eventually they decided to take him in for an emergency chest scan as may have bleeding in the lung (broken rib, on warfarin). They advised me to stay here as the nearest A&E is several miles away and said by the time he’s sorted it will be late and if they keep him in I won’t be able to get home but if they don’t keep him in they will get him home. I feel awful just sitting here not knowing what’s happening to him, times like this I get so angry with myself for losing my nerve driving or i could have followed on and waited with him even though he didn’t want me to. Xx
