ER night... with hubby..

May 21, 2011 - 7 comments

Last night in the ER with the hubby whom has hep C and pain in his right upper quad, which turned out to be pancreatitis... they had a code blue come in. At which the elderly lady pasted away after I saw them wheel her in, with a frantic paramedic doing cpr on her as the stretcher raced down the hall to the ER room. After a few moments, I took a break.. walking outside as the warm wind blew into the darkness, I asked God to take her by her hand and welcome her home...

Sometimes we all think we have bad problems, and then God has his ways of showing us it always could be worse...

How true that is... when we see what others endure it often seems like our own problems pale in comparison.

Very uncanny and what a strange coincidence, we both spent Friday night at the ER with our hubbies next to a code blue, but the lady in the bed next my husband was more fortunate and pulled through.  My husband and I had been in the ER a good 3 hours when the lady they wheeled in next to him suddently went into cardiac arrest... that frantic rush, the CPR, the all hands on... all so very unsettling... sometimes all one can do is offer up a prayer.

My hope is that your husband's pancreatis resolves soon!  Sending healing thoughts your way. ~eureka

Thank you.. all for your kind words! Eureka, I'm wishing you and your husband the same... as well. I am truly amazed by the fact that situations can be the same around us at the same times....

I find it more amazing that God has lead me to this website today in search of good people and friendships with unconditional support that I'm sure I will be needing as time takes its toll with the Hep C journey of my husband.

As my husbands attitude with this whole thing is kind of in denial, and lack of knowing just how bad or what stage it is in. So blindly I venture into this unknown state of "What next?" As a wife of someone who has Hep C, its not easy to sit and watch her mate make bad decisions, knowing I will be the one that has to take care of him in the end. And not being able to make any decisions at the present time, that could possibly change the coarse of his out come.

I don't mean to ramble, but I guess with this whole thing... sometimes I get frustrated with the fact that decisions people make, sometimes they don't think about just how they effect others in their lives.

I'm sure I'm not alone in this journey... I can almost bet that someone out there somewhere... is walking in my shoes when it comes to something like this.... My heart goes out to all of you that are in this position with me!

I appreciate your comment bahamasnut! I am so happy for you, that he finally opened his eyes, however I'm sure it is still tough on you! However, my husbands brother died just over a year ago, of this very thing!! A week after his death, they found him a liver!! But still my husband has not woke up yet! All I can do is take one day at a time... Some days are worse than others... but that's all I can do.. But your words have given me strength & hope... Thank You!
