Flyman35 Posted January 4, 2009 Share Posted January 4, 2009 have been a roller coaster ride. It started Friday when Tom woke up and his blood sugar was at 38. Yikes!! I was able to get it raised to 102 before I left to go to work. I tried calling Tom several times to check on him and make sure all was okay. I called him about 25 times in a 1 1/2 hour window. He was not answering his phone. So of course I am freaking out by this time. My boss tells me to go home and see what is happening. I get home, no car, no Tom. I call again and I hear the phone ring in the bedroom. He forgot to take his phone with him when he went out. He was not at Grammy's D's but I did find him at the food store. I swear I wanted to choke him with his oxygen cord but of course he did not have it on!! It was in the car. He said it had been a rough morning because his vision was blurry. Okay, so should you be out driving then?!! I ended up staying home from work the rest of the day to keep an eye on him. We had friends over for dinner that night so it allowed me to not be so hurried in prep for that. dinner went well and we had a very good time. Tom of course went the night without his O2. He put it back on after our friends left. Then the coughing starts the next morning. The cough is back with a vengeance. We have not received the official x-ray results from the doctor yet but the tech said it showed that the pneumonia was still there. The only difference in the cough this time is that he has the oxygen and before he went in the hospital he did not. So he has not felt like passing out and is not getting disoriented like he was before O2. The cough is brutal though and I don't think either of us slept more than an hour since it started. I am so exhausted. The cough syrup tht he was given has codeine but is not helping. He cannot lay down or he starts coughing and it is from deep in his chest. Her does see the cardiologist regarding the blood clot tomorrow but not until the afternoon. We will have to call the doc in the morning and see what we can do about the cough. His blood sugar yesterday and this morning were within perfect range so I was happy about but the cough has got me a bit freaked out. He is taking all his meds so I don't understand.
