Thanks for the prayers I appreciate them immensely!
Working on the weekend....That's too bad.
Did go out for a bit last night.....DH was not happy when I met up with some friends and insisted I have one a come home. Dinner was nice though. Of course got home and he promptly went to bed....so why did I come home? SIGH.......oh well.
Got some cleaning done today.....still more to do but I will do that tomorrow.......Hope your work is quiet and you can enjoy some of the weekend!!
Thanks Jamie!! Your thoughts are appreciated and I do hope all is well with you! Hunting season .........means the holidays are right around the corner. where does the time go.
Hoping for a quick day for you tomorrow Karen.....Hugs to you both......Jenn
karen-jenn, straight back at ya's. hunting season, sounds totally wild!!! be good. keep well and positive. jamie
Well sixth treatment was yesterday......this was preceded by sunday night him just crying and telling me he felt worse than when he started. He kept saying this is my last hope what if this doesn't work? I told him it is very important that he let the physicians know how he is feeling.....I said I can be an advocate but they need to hear from him how he is really feeling. He needs to help them help him by being honest on his emotions/moods etc. He agreed and then proceeded to tell them yesterday that he felt fine when they asked how he was doing.
I immediately spoke up and told them about the previous nights events and his lack of leaving the house or talking for that matter. They stated that it can take 12-13 treatments before he notices that he feels better.....SIGH. 6 down many to go I guess. So I don't know....we go up tomorrow for another treatment and then see what the plan is I guess. Likely I will be having a charlie brown thanksgiving this year.......Popcorn, toast and jelly beans No reason to cook the whole meal as DH doesn't eat much these days and what I do make he complains about. He used to love my cooking My boys are going with their dad for thanksgiving which is fine I want them to be somewhere happy for the holiday. And our house is anything but.
So that is the most recent of events.......Another day to go.
Hugs to all......Jenn
Yikes Jamie!! There is nothing worse than tooth pain/infection. I do feel for you and hope it resolves quickly and you are on the road to recovery quickly!!
Christmas wreaths!! Tis the season I suppose......good for you Karen what a wonderful thing to do for the animal shelter.
They started an different form of ECT yesterday.......he was receiving bilateral frontal and they have changed to bilateral temporal. Apparently this is more effective but has a higher risk of memory loss. Time will tell. Second one of this type tomorrow.
Stay well the both of you!! Hugs and cheers.......oh and it is chilly here Jamie, winter is on it's way.....UGGGHHHH!!!
We went up to UW for his 9th treatment today and they didn't do it and discontinued them. His memory loss since starting the new ECT last Wednesday has been significant to say the least and as of now no improvement in mood either still very down and now very confused. So we just saw his MD here and we just have to wait.....they up'd his dosage on his meds and we will wait to see when the memory improves if there is any improvement. They stated that a lot of the time once the memory returns you can see an improvement in mood. Time will tell. I am now off work this week as he cannot be left alone. I have to call UW next monday and update them and then call his MD here as well. Should he fall further behind I am to let them know immediately and they will have me admit him for observation.
So hurry up and wait......I am tired of playing the insurance dance that is for sure. But I have everything in my purse and have stayed on top of his health and disability insurance needs so hopefully I will run into no problems there.
Just thought I would let every one know that things have taken a turn for the worse but hopefully when the fog lifts there will be a rainbow.
