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.
Oh no! My very best wishes and thoughts are with you both.ReplyDelete
Oh noooo…. I hope he finally gets the tests he needs…. Fingers crossed for both of you…ReplyDelete
Hope they can figure it out! Write down your questions for the docs. It's easy to get flustered when they come in with information. Linda in KansasReplyDelete
Well, it sucks to be in ER but he'll get the care he needs. Take care.ReplyDelete
Not good, but high time. Sending a big hug and hope all goes well xxReplyDelete
So sorry that you're in the ER and hope you get some answers--and treatment!ReplyDelete
Fingers crossed and good luck.ReplyDelete
Oh crap, Debby. I hope someone gets to the bottom of this. I assume it is Tim and not somebody else.ReplyDelete
Dammit . Hope all goes well xReplyDelete
Thank goodness he is getting this sorted at last - hope all goes well. Sending ((hugs)) all the way to youReplyDelete
Hoping you get some answersReplyDelete
Oh my! Sending good wishes. Olivia, newer commenter.ReplyDelete
I just read the updates. Debby, I'm so sorry all this is happening. Stay strong and take care of yourself while the doctors figure out what's going on. Please keep us posted. I'll be thinking of you all.ReplyDelete
Oh no, at least he is now getting some treatment and I hope they can sort it all out. Hang in there, sending hugs.ReplyDelete
I am so sorry to hear this. Hopefully, you and Tim will get the answers you both need. You know where I am, if you need anything. LindaGReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Sending best wishes for Tim's speedy recovery take care of yourself as wellReplyDelete
I am so sorry to hear this. How sad that it often needs a real crisis before all the tests that need doing actually get done. Look after yourself. Best wishes for a quick recovery.ReplyDelete
Prayers for Tim, and also for you. It's hard for a wife to see any of her family members sick.ReplyDelete
Oh Debby, I'm so sorry.. just read the updates. Please Tim, recover and Lord keep Debby strong. :^(ReplyDelete
Trying not to be like this, but MEN! I hate it that it got to this point for him and for you. Sending healing thoughts.ReplyDelete
Sending encouragement and love.ReplyDelete

My prayers are with you and Tim right now!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
What a shock Debby for you, he is in hospital but not for the reason you wanted. All the best to both of you and keep strong. xReplyDelete
My goodness! From a persistent cough to this? It is rather shocking. I hope both you and he bear up well through this ordeal.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear this. Hope they figure out quickly how to help Tim. Thinking of you...ReplyDelete
I’ll be praying for both of you. -Kelly 🙏🏼ReplyDelete
Of Debby, I'm so sorry. I said a prayer gor you all and hope everything will be okay somehow. Sending live and hugs. PixieReplyDelete
Could there be anything more frightening than that? Oh dear woman. I am so sorry. Please keep us posted.ReplyDelete
I do hope there is better news today.ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh. Please let us know what happens. I'm thinking of you all.ReplyDelete
This is a tough time for you. I hope They can do something for Tim.ReplyDelete
I am so sorry. I hope all resolves soon. Take care.ReplyDelete
Thinking of you as you navigate this new stress. Remember to try to take care of yourself too.ReplyDelete
I am so sorry it has reached this point. Hopefully they'll figure it out and fix it.ReplyDelete
I am so sorry he has taken a turn for the worse, but at least now he is in hospital and will receive the care he needs.ReplyDelete
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
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.ReplyDelete
Praying hard for Tim and you, Debby.ReplyDelete
BTW from JeanieDelete
I’m crossing my fingers for Tim (and you!) I hope he will finally get the proper attention and care!❤️Hugs to you both. Xo, RickiReplyDelete
