About 2 weeks….

is what the dr told me today.  Pita is declining so rapidly that she couldn’t give me a time frame but said she would be surprised if he made it 2 weeks.

I saw him on Saturday and he looked visibly declined but still ok.  Today I saw him and he is in an adult diaper with a condom cath on, he can’t talk or swallow and if the try to give him water to drink orally he just aspirates it.  They can’t give him IV fluids because it will collect in his extremities and will swell his body which will make things worse for him.

The dr.'s have been trying different medicine doses to keep him pain free and avoid the agitation that he has and they think they found the proper dosage for his medication needs.

I can’t believe I am going to have to say goodbye to my Pita in about 2 weeks.  I pray that he wakes up tomorrow and he is cured and he raises holy hell to get out of there and come home and lecture me for putting him in the hospital!  I don’t want to say goodbye to him.  I love him and I want him in my life as my husband and father of our boys!

For better, for worse
Til death do us part
I love you with every beat of my heart

  1. Jeanne--- I am just surprised he has made that much of a change just over the weekend. I am also glad you had him in the respite care, so they could help him right away.
    I can only imagine how shocking his change to you could be.
    Try to have the counselors chat with the boys,to prepare them, as best as possible.

    Thinking of you.
