Feeling lost

My husband was rushed into Resus yesterday - doctors think due to severe heart failure exacerbated by severe COPD. All the hospital staff have been so kind but Im now at home on my own and feeling so lonely. I will be going back to the hospital shortly with different bits and pieces which he needs but I'm almost too frightened to go. I want to phone to find out how he is before I go but I'm also frightened to hear what they say. I don't have any family - as I said to one of the doctors "to you, he's a patient. To me, he's everything". Not sure why I'm writing this but just had to tell someone. Jan x

Oh, how sad and difficult for you both, Jan. Go there, and be there for him. Whatever the outcome, he will want you to be with him through it, the way you've been with him through all the other events in your lives together. Blessings, M.

Hi Jan

Sorry to hear about your husband. At least he is in the right place. Hopefully the medics will explain everything when you phone. Try to stay strong. I too have severe COPD and the breathlessness can be frightening at times. I will say a little prayer.

Take care

I appreciate how you are feeling about your Husband, Jan. They are so precious. It takes their sickness to make really clear how we do feel about them. You are very welcome to PM me any time you feel overwhelmed by worry at any time. You are far from being alone in this forum, believe me XXX

Thank you all so much for your support - I shed a few tears. He's holding his own but have had to have distressing conversation about resuscitation - still praying he will be OK for a while longer. Thank you again all of you. Jan xx
