I returned to the hospital Saturday morning and find He-Who quite listless. His color isn't good and he still has the terrible cough. He doesn't want to converse and I let him rest. It is obvious he isn't eating much. I call our son and give him the update and tell him I think he should come. I am really worried!!!
At noon I try again to get him to eat. There is shrimp on the menu, a favorite of his but I can only get him to eat a couple. He seems to have difficulty getting anything down, even swallowing is a challenge.
I decide to go home in the late afternoon and make a brief appearance at the party. The hospital has my number if needed.
Polly had a lovely good-bye cake for us and friends were most gracious and understanding in their goodbyes. I am feeling worse and worse physically and crash into bed after another round of medicine.
Today is Karen's birthday. Chris arrives and takes over for a while as by now I am really sick. I am just too sick to get to the hospital today and if I have a different bug than He-Who's, I am afraid to expose him. He doesn't seem any better. The doc calls and is moving him into ICU to keep a closer eye on him. I am so worried! Do the new nurses know he has Alzheimer's and can't respond normally? That he is hard of hearing and can't see without his glasses?
Pray everyone, pray!
