More problems

September 6, 2007 at 1:33 am

When I saw nate today, he still looked and felt like hell. Now his blood pressure went too high. It was 180/100. Its from his kidneys. They gave him some meds to get it down and its working. It was 120/92 at 4:00 p.m. today. Much better but not quite where they want it.
His doc came in last night and told him it was just going to be a waiting game, waiting for the meds to do their job. His fever is gone now so something good is happening.
His urine output is a bit better now and its not quite as dark as it was.
His head still hurts and his back. That’s probably his kidneys hurting but he can’t tell.
My 77 yr old mom is in the hospital now too. She has pretty much lost her ability to make any sense and she doesn’t know where she is now.
She just waves her arms and yells now.
She is about 250 miles away from me so I can’t do much with Nate sick.
My sister and aunt are close by her, so they can help make decisions and figure out what to do with her.
I know what they mean about “when it rains, it pours”. My mom has them but nate only has me, my youngest son and my husband of 2 1/2 yrs.
I’m go glad to have them to help me through all of this. I think I would have a really hard time getting through all this by myself.
All I really want now is for Nate to get better and be as ok as he can be.
He has been through so much. Its time for him to get a break.
I will tell him hi from all of you and thank you for your encouragement.
