Thank you! And update

Thank you all for your comments, offers of prayer and positive thoughts.

Things have improved with DH, today was his best day. They have put him on blood thinners to stop the formation of new clots. This morning they did a procedure on him where they inserted a filter. It was inserted from the left groin area and passed over to the right side where the filter opens like an umbrella. It is designed to catch and stop clots from traveling up to his lungs. They also did a CAT scan of the lungs this afternoon to check status of clots that were there and to get an idea of damage.

I was at the hospital when he came out of the morning procedure and he looked good. They did not put him to sleep for this but numbed area of insertion. I could tell he was very anxious from all of this and he was given a pain and anxiety pill. I then went to work, first time this week. That helped give me some sense of normalcy. I went back to hospital early evening and he was sitting up in bed, had shaved and washed so I knew he was feeling better.

He ordered spaghetti for dinner which is one of his favorites! He is Italian. It was good to see improvement. He is still not out of the woods yet but prognosis is good. When he will get to come home is not yet clear, hopefully soon now.

I think I will sleep easier tonight. I even went into my sewing room when I got home and continued my glue basting of eyelet skirt. That provided another sense of normalcy for my day.

  10. Linda I just read about your husband. This is so weird because I was sent to the hospital last Tuesday for the same thing. It ended up I didn't have any clots thankfully. I will pray he recovers quickly and can be with you at home soon!
