Wow the past 2 weeks have been horrible. Hubby has been sick for either 2 or 3 weeks now and has gone threw 2 bouts of strong antibiotics and is still sick. He went to ER the other night and they slapped him into ICU because his o2 sats were below 90. Well today they moved him to a reg room and told him he would be there for 3 or 4 more days. Between worry and trying to eat right and wanting to go stay with him and him saying NO, grrrrrrr, I am just totally give out. But I wanted to let yall know I will be gone for a while as he has not worked for like 3 weeks and bills are pileing up and the internet is at the bottom of the list. So I won't be here for a while unless I can get in on my phone every once in a while. Hugz to all and I will see when I can get in. :o) God Bless Everyone Lori

OK I am starting to think I need a new gp Dr. My husband has a hiatal hernia that has turned into a huge hernia with intestines falling threw and has been trying to get his referral for UTMB from them for 10 days now. He has tried for the first 3 days to reach her office but kept getting the office in charge for some reason, that is another Dr's office she and her husband sold the business end of there practice to, and all he could get from them was to make an appointment or call back later. So to keep from paying a $65.00 office call to say we need to talk he called back. Well this rocked on for the next 2 days . Then Monday he finally reached them and they pressured him to make an appointment but he said not until you have my records from the hospital, he had been out of work for a month and a half by now and has no money, so they said they would request them. He called back the next day to see if they had gotten them and there answer was "No Mr Girouard you must come to the office and sign a paper to release them to us." he said fine I will be there in a few mins. Then when he got there they told him he had one on file and there was no need for him to sign a new one, well that was a waste of gas, so they faxed over for the records. Ok we are at Wednesday now and the Dr finally calls him and tells him she has all the paperwork and is going to take it home and talk to her husband, who is also one of our Dr's, and will call him Thursday. Well she did not call so he called the office and they said oh I am sorry she is out sick today. He is getting so mad by now. So today he gets a call at like 1pm from some Dr here by the house and is told he has an appointment with them for Monday at 8:15am and since he has no insurance he needs to bring $100.00 to get in the door and to get a copy of his CT scan from the hospital before he comes. Now on Friday our gp Dr's close at noon so now he is stuck with go to the new dr and spend the $100.00 and hope for no more charges or to go to her office and get pissed. Why she referred him to this Dr and not to UTMB when we could get some help money wise I have no clue. I don't know what to do I am worried for him. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

God Bless, :o)

Well we are home now and we got the results back for the CT Scan. He has a small rip in his lung and he has some bowel falling into his lung which is allowing the upper body fluid to flow into his lung and then it is getting infected which then turns into pneumonia and with the moisture flowing in on top of it makes it very hard to get rid of the infection. So the hospital Dr said to get with his gp and get an appointment with Galveston, Texas, UTMB which is a school of medicine for people that can't afford to pay for medical procedures, It is only about 45 mins away. So we are working for that. Ok I gotta run for now I will be back after I get him tended.

God Bless :o)

Thank you very much Harlen and Graylin. We are still here dang it. He keeps saying he is going to walk out because they are wanting to check out the shadow in his lung and he says it has been checked out before and he don't want to wait. He says…it has been there for 10 years why they want to mess with it now? His sister came over last night and told him his Dr did not even know he was in the hospital soooo…to me that says he has 1 office Dr and 2 hospital Dr's this is crazy!!! The Dr that has been seeing him was suppose to come by Friday to tell us what he found with the cat scan and he was a no show then the weekend Dr came in today and said he would go look and come back and tell us results. Well he went and looked then left. Grrrrrrrrr!!!!!! I am going crazy here. Oh and I finally got to spend the night up here the last 2 nights. Yeah!!!!!! He said he wants me to go get on my o2 now and my Bi-Pap for a night. He says he can see it in my face that I am not resting well…I say how am I suppose to be resting with all this stuff going on. I so do not want to go home, but I might not have a choice. Ok it is time to order his food, you must phone in your 3 meals a day at meal times to the kitchen is that not crazy? lol, I will try to come back tonight and post around some. Hugzzz,

God Bless, :o)

Getting Drs to talk to you can be pretty dang hard at times. Hope you got some answers today. Be careful about your O2. I learned how drained low O2 made me. You need to take as good of care of yourself as you can while dealing with all the stress.
