We got home from the hospital this evening and I thought I would give you an update before I call it a day.The upper gi scope showed he had been bleeding in his stomach again. There isn't anything that they can do other then monitor his blood counts. They gave him both 2 units of blood and iron both the first night after I got him there. They got him up to 8.6 according to medicare standards that is safe. That isn't even the bottom of the normal range. They had to repeat his lower gi scope because they say he wasn't cleaned. I don't really know other then the doctor that performed it didn't really want to do it. Said so right in front of my hubby who was going to be put to sleep. I let our hospitalist know about it and I was not a happy camper. I told him you do not voice those kind of comments in front of your patient who is about to be put to sleep. I think If it had been me I wouldn't have let them do it. We had a successful one today. We have brought a liver doctor on board. I don't know what they are going to try to do. It is a lady doctor and she did tell us that with all of his health issues he wasn't a liver candidate. We shall see.
I know I will be glad to have my own bed. Sleeping in a straight back chair with my feet propped up on the edge of his bed wasn't a good way. They finally got me a recliner and then we got moved to a private room.More lab work and doctor visits and I was hoping they would so down. I stay with him 24/7 because I sign for his health. Thanks to all of you who sent prayers. They were greatly appreciated. Hugs to you all, I am headed to bed.
