Hubby is home with no results whatsoever.

Found out hubby’s pacemaker/defibrillator wasn’t compatible with any of their MRI machines.  You would have thought that they would have checked that on Thursday before keeping him in, and taking up a hospital bed, with all the costs for 2 days.  I got there at 1, and it was 5 p.m. before they got the answer that he was to come home.
I asked the nurse what the cause was, and what are the follow ups.  He has to see his G.P., and also the neurologist.  They do not know the reason, and it could just be age, and the chronic health issues that he has.  So no wiser, and really disappointed.
The nurse told hubby to go slower, use every health aide he has.  Within minutes of being home, he had overbalanced, and landed in his recliner.  So the fun begins again.

  1. So sorry to hear there is not yet a resolution Susie. I do agree that the advice to use all his aids is valid. That is tough advice for some men to follow. Pat’s Dad at 90 had a heart attack 4 weeks ago, but still thinks nothing has changed. He still thinks he can do it all. Best wishes for more concrete answers soon. Stay well. Allan

  2. I’m sorry, Susie. That must be so frustrating to go through so much and get no answers. I hope hubby stays safe at home, uses his wheelchair and walker, and that you get a bit of a break.

  3. While I am glad he is back home, this hardly sounds like anything was resolved. Good luck with getting your husband to slow down, Susie. I don’t think the doctors realize how strong-willed he is. You need a break.
