applewe Posted September 18, 2006 Share Posted September 18, 2006 On Sept 10, my husband was huspitalized in respiratory distress. When he was released on Wed it was with a referral to hospice. He has superior vena cava syndrome, making his upper body very swollen: eyes, face, neck arms, chest, etc. His color is very poor. he sleeps a lot now, for which I am thankful. I only hope I can keep him comfortable and happy. Some times he is so agitated and anxious. He is confused. he'll ask for something and then get mad when I bring it to him. It is so hard to whatch him like this. I get frusttrated trying to figure out what he wants, then I get angry with myself for not having enough patience. I wish I knew how to handle things better. I think that by the time I get it figured out, it will be over. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
