Bad Night For Uncle

Tuesday, May 06, 2014

Went to visit my uncle in the hospital this morning at 11 but was turned away by the nurse because he was sleeping and she didn't want us to wake him up. He apparently had a bad night and became very agitated and confused. He ripped out his IVs, tried to get out of bed, and was kicking. It's really tough hearing that but at least he's getting the care that he needs. The Dr has him on antibiotics, pain meds, and meds for his gallstones. They're trying to get the stones to break down through medicine but it not then he will need to have surgery. He also doesn't have the stool virus they thought he might have which is good news. The bad news is his heart enzymes are up and down :( For those who don't know what that is it is basically an enzyme released when there is damage to the heart (heart attack). His numbers are going up and down so he's on medicine to try to correct his numbers. His color is better and last night when we visited he was in alright spirits but because of the pain medication he wasn't making much sense. He kept telling me there were puppies, a woman riding a horse, and to go out and socialize because it's rude not to. Oh and apparently I was missing some party with pizza, ice, beer, cake, and ice cream lol. It was hard seeing him so out of it but I knew it was the medicine. He's still in a lot of pain so they're trying to figure out what's going on with that. We're going to visit him tonight but I'll probably see if I can call first to make sure he's up. I'm so stressed out and worried I don't know what to do with myself. I'm trying to keep my regular routine and stay on top of my healthy eating and workouts. I went for my 3.25 mile walk this morning and did my 100 squats, 200 leg exercises, 2 minute plank, and 300 crunches for today. I usually do 1-2 30 minute exercises every day and yesterday was the first day I didn't do one because I was at the hospital. I'll go ahead and get off my tushy right now and get 1 30 minute exercise in. Today is our gym day but considering all that is going on I think I can skip 1 day or rework it for later in the week.

    I hope your uncle will get better soon and have a good recovery. It's very difficult to see our love ones in these positions and feeling helpless. Especially, when your so use to seeing them active. It just so heart breaking. emoticon
