Beginning last night, my husband began experiencing extreme difficulty in breathing and was in acute pain. His stomach was filling with fluid causing pressure on the lungs. A nasal-gastic tube was placed into his nose and down to the stomach to relieve the pressure and drain more fluid. They also changed up his pain meds. He did feel immediate relief in his breathing.
This afternoon, though his heart rate shot up and his oxygen level plummeted. Early this evening they began a series of tests; ekg, chest x-ray, CT scan and more blood work.
And his temperature shot up.
At this time, I am still waiting to hear results of these tests, as to what is causing these problems, and the treatment. He is very groggy with the morphine and other drugs. I can hope that he will sleep tonight as he is so exhausted.
Thank you for your prayers and healing thoughts.
