my name is Tracey.
my husband Paul is 47 years old and usually fit and well.
3 weeks ago he developed a severe chest infection and the doctor gave him some antibiotics. after a day and a half I could see he wasnt feeling better so i sent him back to docs. they then sent him to hospital.
the day after he seemed in better spirits when his daughter visited. although she said in the 3 hours she was there the nurse had forgotten to turn on his oxygen.
he video called me in the afternoon with a nebuliser mask on him and seemed in good spirits.
however early hours Saturday morning be started texting me. come get me. get here fast. don't phone just come get me.
obviously I was concerned and phoned the ward and they said very sorry your husband got agitated and took himself off the ward. I phoned 10 mins later and they said no problem we have found him and he is now safe on the ward.
10 mins later I phoned to see how he was and the doctor said I needed to get to hospital quick as my husband had a seizure.
he had respiratory arrest and put him in induced coma.
he is breathing for himself and has a tracheoctomy in. his kidneys are now working fine and he is now on no medication. just a feed tube.
he hasn't regained consciousness although his eyes open on occasions and he does mouthing movements and he yawns alot and he does shudder but apart from that there is nothing
he is my husband and my life and I am distraught beyond words. please can someone help who is or going through this
many thanks from a desperate heartbroken wife xxxxxxx
