As you all know my husband suffers from COPD and Bronchiectasis.
Last year he was in hospital numerous times with pneumonia then in February of this year he was given Zithromax, (Azithromycin) three days a week for anti-inflammatory purposes and never had an infection until it all kicked off yesterday.
I rang for the ambulance and it came (Red light), he has pneumonia, and now on IV drips of antibiotics etc.
Three days ago he started feeling ill with a temperature so I got his emergency antibiotics out for him to take, but I found out in hospital last night that he had not taken them and the reason was he wanted to wait to see if it would pass over.
This is what I am up against, he will only do what he wants to do and we all have to suffer the consequences. I also found out when looking in his medical bag he had stopped taking the Mucodyne and had cut down on his Nebuliser usage, he is supposed to use it six times a day but he cut it down to 3, when I asked him why, he said, the noise frightens the dog.
So because of his stupidity he is in hospital on a drip, we are now having to visit him and I am ill myself as I think he has given my the bug he has got. I didn't get home from hospital until 1 am this morning as he didn't want me to leave him. I am too ill to visit today and at the moment am having a cup of coffee and a sit down without having to run backwards and forwards after him.
I have told him in no uncertain terms, this is the end of it, if he doesn't start taking his medication and listening to me instead of telling me to shut my mouth and mind my own business then I am leaving him as I am sick to the back teeth of him and his selfish ways. I have now told my sons what I am going through (I always hid it from them) and they agree with me that he doesn't deserve me and they will back me up with whatever I decide to do.
Sorry about the rant but this should have never happened, everyone is backing his corner but himself and he doesn't deserve the help he is getting.
He said last night that he thought he was dying so I told him that if he had died it would have been his own fault and if this is the way he is behaving we couldn't care less as we are all fed up of his stupid, selfish ways.
