Do you have family and friends helping you out. I am so sorry you are going through this. My Dad got really sick on us a few years ago and it was the most horrible time in our familys life.
I hope you have a shoulder to lean on in the hospital. Don't forget to eat... remember you need to stay healthy at this time, don't let yourself get run down!!

Yes I do have my son and daughter in law who have been gems! My son has taken me every day to see him because I don't drive in Atlantic City. EEK It freaks me out with all those cars. He actually took a week off of work and stayed with me the first two nights. They have taken me out to dinner and over to their house for take out cheese steaks. My cousin took me today because my son and daughter in law had to go to the wedding of her cousin. I have another cousin who made me promise to call him to take me too. My son is going to take me next week on his lunch hour and bring me home when he gets off work.

I am blessed.

I was downstairs making his lunch and didn't hear him fall. I finally went upstairs about 10 minutes later to find him unconscious on the floor. We got him to the trauma unit and the dr told me they needed to get him into surgery immediately to get out the blood from the subdural hematoma. Everything went well.

He can follow commands, like squeeze my hand but he just hasn't opened his eyes yet.

Please pray that he does soon. He is in great shape for his age (73) So that is in his favor. We have been married 44 years this July. I NEED him to be OK.

Thanks.
Him responding is good!! When my fil had a stroke and everyone was off talking to the doctor I was in the room alone with him. I held his had and he started to respond. He squeezed my hand when asked. I talked my fool head off with him. Doctor later said that probably helped. He loved to fish and that is what I talked about. The first thing he said when he woke up was "when are going fishing?"


He made a full recovery.

Today the nurse said he opened his eye again just a crack. While I was there she showed me what she does. After yelling his name in his ear and poking him she asks him to open his eyes. After a couple of times, she raises one lid for him and when it closes he opens it just a crack. That poor man is going to be deaf and black and blue. LOL I was holding his hand and he squeezed it and rubbed it like he always does. He was also moving a lot today for a couple of hours. Then he seemed like it was his nap time and he just relaxed. Tomorrow or Tuesday they are going to do the trach and put his feeding tube in his tummy. If he responds well to the trach and can breathe on his own and is able to cough that will be a big step forward. After that it's just a matter of time if he can be medically stable. Then they can move him to a rehab center closer to home.

I guess I just have to be happy with tiny improvements.

Today I went grocery shopping. It felt so strange to be doing that by myself. I haven't driven in a couple of years, but everything was fine. I do so miss my partner. We did everything together.

Again, thank you all for your support. You can't know what it means to me.

DISers are the BEST!

Ohhh your post brought tears to my eyes. I pray very soon he will be back at your side where he belongs. He seems to be taking baby steps to getting there so that is good news! I wish him every day better than the one before.

Today he wasn't active at all. He couldn't even open his eye at all. It seems like he used up all his energy yesterday when he was moving all around and opened his eye a crack with help from his nurse.

They are going to do the trach tomorrow morning at 10:15. The doctor says that usually after that is done, the patient wakes up within 3 or 4 days. I'm praying that happens.

Thank you all for being so caring.
