So after 86 days in ITU, recovery and rehab, my husband came home yesterday. Covid has damaged his kidneys (stage 2 - not quite sure what that means yet as we haven't had any follow up information) , heart failure etc.
I asked the rehab could they take some bloods as when he was in ITU his HG count was low and he needed transfusions. his HG is now 104 and his white count is slightly high. I am concerned as the results said the blood was clumping, the doctors are taking bloods on Monday, I asked why they clumped they said it could be they way they were stored, I can't stop worrying .
I think we will get a visit from somebody next week . My husband is very tired , weak and very sad, his feet seem to be the issue , he has no real movement on them and says they feel so heavy, the pain is constant in them. He also has drop foot .
We were told 3 weeks ago, by the OT we will need a bed downstairs , as he couldn't walk, We didn't He managed our stairs very slowly yesterday and twice today. He has walked up and down the small road we live on today .
He had a bath last night which he proclaimed was bliss , we had a bath lift delivered along with lots of other walking aids from our local council, which has made personal care much easier for us .
We are so happy to have him home and will update you of the progress.
