E.R.

 We are at the hospital right now. This is so not good.

Late edit: we are waiting for a bed to open in a city hospital. He will be transported there as soon as they have an open bed. Been a long night.

Later edit: I came home to get coffee, a shower, packed up and then get William off to school. Then it will be back off to the hospital. He will be admitted to a hospital a little over an hour from here at some point. Today? Not even sure. 

Remember how yesterday's post ended? Tim looking at me and not talking? It turns out that he COULDN'T talk, something that wasn't realized until much later in the day because he went upstairs and put himself to bed and slept most of the day. 

He came down to sit on the couch looking rumpled and half awake. His daughter called, and I realized that he couldn't talk. He had a slow shuffling gait. I got him loaded and to the hospital where he was unable to remember my name, thought it was 1975, and couldn't identify a watch. It was awfully hard to wrap my head around all of it. 

He was whisked away quickly where it appears that despite initial appearances he hadn't had a stroke. 

They've done a bunch of tests and have no answers. 

His speech is clearer. He thinks it is 2014, so we're getting closer, I guess. 

Is it related to his long term sickness? My gut says that it has to be. It will be interesting to see what the tests say. 

It is now 5 AM. I've had my coffee. Time to get my shower.

  14. Ai YiYi!! It's awful waiting in the ER for a bed to open up in the hospital!! You've blogged about Tim's illness here, so you have a record to refer to. I remember a story about a dr. who asked a patient to draw a clock, and the patient put all the numbers on one side. It indicated a certain type of sickness affecting the brain. I sure hope a dr. figures out what has happened to Tim. Best Wishes for a speedy recovery.

  22. Oh no, not what we wanted to read but at least he will get proper treatment now. The confusion sounds like possibly a UTI on top of anything chest-wise. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  36. Popping in just in case you were able to give an update. Take care of yourself Debby, and I hope you are able to sleep tonight. William must be so worried too.

    ReplyDelete
  37. damn. How scary. And so stressful. I hope they find what the problem is and he gets properly better soon. Hope you know what those good-for-nothing doctors shot him with a couple of days ago cos some steroids can really mess you up, which might complicate things for the hospital. Thinking of you both. Take care of yourself. Cat.
