HI my husband, who is 66, has end-stage emphysema. Late last summer we were involved in a scooter accident (I think he passed out) where he broke 8 ribs and got a collapsed lung. We toughed all that out and after 3+ months and getting off a vent and having a trac removed, he came home. Since he came home he has been nasty and seems to disregard all the things I do for him. I honestly think he is mad at me because he has this. Is this common? Then there is the fact he told me his doctors ask if I beat him yet, WTH? I would not do this...he claims the doctors say it is common for spouses to do this. Has anyone hear anything like this before?
