I am absolutely thrilled to say my dad has been stepped down from ICU and onto a ward for rehabilitation & monitoring of his anti coagulation in the hope for no more internal bleeds or anything else for that matter .
They lined the corridors with drs, surgeons, nurses, physio therapists and the pharmacist and clapped for him & filmed it all for my mother & i to see 🙏🏻❤️
Some of you may remember i posted a while back about my dad having contracted covid in hospital after a successful triple heart bypass and mechanical heart valve fitted.. the covid ripped through him causing him multiple problems along the way including pneumonia, x2 heart attacks , broken sternum from CPR, deep sternal wound infection , 2 internal bleeds on separate occasions requiring emergency surgery, plural infusion, pneumothorax and the odd acquired icu infection, and terrible bouts of icu delirium!
He was initially put on a ventilator for 2 weeks then had a tracheostomy fitted and was weaned successful after a long time of ventilation !
I wanted to give u some hope in the depths of your dispare , we were told many times the odds were stacked against him, and things were not looking good, the dreaded call in the night that the next 12 hours were critical ... too unstable to do a CT scan etc ... those times i went quite on this group just searching out information and trying to keep myself and family afloat!
Keep the faith & have hope in your heart !
A long road in rehabilitation ahead but a huge thank you to everyone who contributes to this group - including those who have lost loved ones
