Just Shoot Me
Friday, August 11, 2017
Well I feel that way at times. My poor DH has been in the hospital 6 times since he got a stent in May. He is currently in there for his 3rd GI bleed and still no answers. Tonight his GI dr is lucky I didn't totally come unglued and choke him.
He came in to tell us the "bad" news that the nuclear test didn't show the source of the bleed again. Then he proceeded to tell us that we needed to get in ASAP and tell the ER staff to do the test STAT. Yeah, right, they are going to do what we say!! We tell them to notify him, if it is during the day, I call the office to tell them he has another bleed and we are heading to the hospital. I think that is our due diligence. We can't order the test. That is YOUR job. I tried to ask questions and I guess he didn't like that because he then said that DH would not like it if we just took out the colon. Now that I have had a few hours to digest all of this, I am ready to get some answers tomorrow or else we will be moving to GI doc #4. We have already gone thru 2 before this group in the past 5 years.
So far I have managed to get pneumonia - guess I picked up the germ when he was in the hospital in July and was down and out for 2 weeks. He was in last week and I caught a stomach virus and I am extremely careful with touching things, etc. Lots of handwashing, mask, etc. I am normally healthy but spending so much time where there are sick people is not good for anyone.
Wish me luck getting answers for him and keeping him out of the hospital or Just take me out and shoot me!
