shelliemacs Posted June 3, 2004 Share Posted June 3, 2004 Ok, the brain MRI came back this morning NEGATIVE????? the bone scan showed one spot on one rib. the chest x-rays were clear. WHAT could be causing the extreme delusions, extreme confusions, violent mood swings, extreme lethargy, no intake of food or fluids, and unbearable pain across his back and down his legs. they told us he needs a PET scan that we have scheduled for 6/8 now. it will be at another hospital and they say its against their hospital procedures to just take him there and do the scan and bring him back. He would have to be discharged and us take him. Now the unbelieveable part. they are again releasing him since they have no dx as to why these things are happening. WHAT!!! I am alone in taking care of him, his brother says he will NOT help me. That it is just too much for him. his sister says she goes away to her camp every weekend and the 18 miles is too far to commute every day with gas prices where they are. I am just stupified at this all. I have pretty much begged my sister and the next door neighbors to help me with the care since I can't afford to not work cause I am paying dads bills now. I was supposed to go to a new camp myself this weekend, I am telling dads onc. that if he can't keep him in the hospital, I am taking him with me so he can be cared for and watched. the neighbors agreed to go with us and said they would help with his care since they have been friends for over 20 years and dad is calm around them. i now have NO time for my nervous breakdown, i will try to schedule it for some time next month if the weather permits. does anyone here want to come to camp and help out. the smores and smirnoff are on me.
