Hello Linda, hope your husband is able to play golf today. Let us know how he does.
Also call them for the results Monday if you didn't get any yet......They may not have them but by doing so it lets them know that you are on top of things and will call you as soon as they get them. I learned the hard way in the beginning......trusted that if the results were bad that we'd get a call.........WRONG.......we were made aware that there was something wrong from his PC doctor a couple months later and to call his GI doctor who had ordered the sonagram (he didn't call us back) ........and then a couple of days later......at his appointment with the hepatologist.......he asked us why were there?... that my husband needed to be hospitalized and that he had liver cancer and wanted us to go directly to the transplant hospital. That started the journey of ESLD for us.
I was such a baby in this disease during that time and learned as I went. I didn't find this forum until about 5 months before my husband died. I feel that if I would have only found it sooner there may have been a different out come.......or at least he would have lived longer.
When my brother was hospitalized last June........I felt like a veteran. I knew what to expect and also knew what to do and what questions to ask. The doctors were impressed that I actually was as educated as I was on this disease. They actually talked to me and didn't blow me off. What a difference from the 1st go round. Unfortunantly same out come... as my brother also had emphysema.
Anyways Linda.......remember to take care of yourself too during this journey......take little breaks when ever you get a chance to . You need to catch your breath and recharge your batteries every so often.
Lot's of thoughts and prayers.......
When the going gets tough....the tough get going! Don't always know where I going but I get there anyways.
