Dear readers. Some of you might have read the post on my dad's severe pneumonia and induced coma this February. He has endured so many ups but also terrible downs as did I being time three times he wouldn't survive. Well he is still here and though still with ups and downs, slowly waking up out of his nearly two month lasting artificial sleep. He is struggling ... sedation makes him forget what has happened to him resulting in various panic attacks evert time he wakes up after sleeping. He cannot speak due to tracheostomy nor can he move. I feel very upset seeing his hartrate and bloodpressure rise lang times. It's a difficult balance for his doctors and nurses to try and stop sedation completely. Can anyone relate? And what can I do to help him? It's hard of course to see him suffer.
