HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you. I got my present today which was hubby got out of the hospital today. He didn't have a stroke, but they didn't completely rule out a mini stroke because when he squeezes your hand, the left hand does not squeeze as tight as the right. His ammonia level was still 69, but they could no longer justify another day in the hospital. It was 195 when he was admitted  which was way to high.  He had several things going on at once, but it is terribly nerve racking when you don't know what is happening. Of course, you always think the worse case possible. With  him having cirrohosis of the liver you have to watch his ammonia level because he takes meds that require the liver to function. His doesn't so we take laculose to help get rid of them.  You have to be careful how you do it.  When I get really stress and nerves stretch to the limit, I get sick to my stomach.  Needless to say that happened early Saturday morning. The nurse caught me vomiting and thought I had the flu. It was just something that happens every so often ,I want to say thank you  from the bottom of my heart for your prayers they have truly helped me get through these days. I just wanted you to know I am home and he is back in the nursing home. I still have to talk with some people there that had already gone home by the time we got out of the hospital so that is on the agenda. Well I really need to get some sleep because I need to go back to work tomorrow. Trying to finalize everything by the end of the month. Thank you again.

Shirley- I am glad that your hubby is back in the nursing home. I am so sorry that you have both been through so much. I feel sick to my stomach when I get too stressed out, too. I hope you have a good day back at work. You should be able to collect unemployment after all your time working there. Make sure you look into it so you are all set to get paid as soon as your job ends. You can collect for a minimum of 26 weeks...and our neighbor collected for 99 weeks- xo Diana

I am glad your hubby is out of the hospital, hopefully things will be looking up now.
I am glad you stopped by for a visit to my blog today. The sun is shining here today, will probably be melting some of the big ice cube in my front yard.
Have a great rest of the weekend.
