I have in law updates…she thinks she trumps me! Oh how I don’t think so. SIL came down from the cow farm…and no that is not an insult…she is a cow farmer. Of course since SHE was there, in MIL’s eyes I just was useless and should have gone away. I however made if VERY clear to the phlebotomist, and the nurse (who is a sweetie) that I am “in charge” Them MIL says “but I am his mother” Yes, but on July 7, 1998 I became his wife. I win. Urgh. I was still graceful, and just asked the questions that needed to be answered, and left the rest alone.
So here is the email update I sent out: Please forgive typos…and incorrect grammar I am seriously exhausted. I keep thinking its Tuesday…here its Wednesday…and I still have a load of laundry to do so that I can take Jacob his clean underwear that he is requesting. Then…I will pass out…Lord knows, I don’t even call it sleep.
Jacob was moved out of ICU tonight. Thank GOD those nurses were USELESS. If I had a question the answer was “I don’t know” The nurses on his new unit answer EVERY question I have even if its stupid. Tammy, his night nurse even offered to let me spend the night and offered to let me come home and come back if I wanted too later. What a doll! All nurses should be like her!!! SHe was FABULOUS.
Ok…so Jake had the NG tube removed today, and was then transfused with 1 unit of blood. Once that was complete they moved him to his new room. At about 7ish, his GI doctor came in, and said he could have liquids. He started w/Jello and Ginger Ale then had a cold pop.
Tomorrow afternoon they are going to rescope him, and then they will start him on solid foods which to be honest PANICS me to no end. I don’t want him to start re-bleeding. They tell me that is slim or else they wouldn’t have started him on liquids.
So we are looking for a possible discharge of Saturday…but even though we miss him terribly here I say keep him as long as he needs to get well! HOpefully tomorrow night we will have a diagnosis for why, what and how this bleeding occured…well we know the how…be need the why and what.
Thanks for the support all!
