Oh my gosh, how scary. He is so lucky you were there. I believe this was a warning for him to start taking care of himself. Hugs to you.

How scary. I'm so glad you were able to get him to the hospital so quickly! Praying for a full recovery, and a lifestyle change for your DH. Good job!

Oh I'm so glad he was with you. You recognized the signs and got him to the hospital. Obviously Jerry has unfinished business here on earth,I'm so happy he's been given more time with you. You all have have faced so much during your lives, you will get thru this too. I will pray for healing and strength for both of you as he recovers and starts making all the changes he needs to. I'm so proud of how well you reacted in an emergency. You must have been so scared. Please keep us updated.

Sat. 9:15 update

i DIDN'T READ WHAT i HAD WRITTEN AND i HAVE B EEN ON THE PHONE ALMOST CONSTANTLY FOR 2 DAYS NOW WHAT WITH ALLMY FAMILY AND JERRY'S FAMILY AND FRIENDS CALLING. WHEN WE WERE THERE YESTERDAY MONRING THEY HAD SAID HE COULD BREATH JUST FINE ON HIS OWN, BUT THEY WANTED TO WEAN HIM FROM THE BREATHING MACHINE THEY HAD PUT HIM ON DURING SURGERY, AND FIGURED IT WOULD BE OFF IT LAST NIGHT. iI TELL YOU, I HEVER SAW SO MANY IV DRIPS AND MACINES HOOKED UP TO ANY ONE PERSON IN MY LIFE. THEY EVEN HAD HIM TIED DOWN BY WRISTS TO MAKE SURE HE DIDN'T PULL ANYTHING LOOSE.

WELL THIS MORNING WE FIND THEY HAD REMOVED THE MBREATHING MACHINE LAST NIGHT AS PLANNED AND CUTTING BACK ON THE AMOUNT OF MEDS HE IS GETTING. HOWEVER, SINCE THEY HAD TO THIN HIS BLOOD SO MUCH PRE SURGERY, HE IS STILL GETTING BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS UNTIL THE BLEEDING STOPS. THEY SAID HE COULD HAVE GONE INTO HIS PRIVATE ROOM TOMORROW, BUT DO NOT USUALLY MOVE PEOPLE AROUND ON SUNDAY SO WILL BE MOVED TO HIS PRIVATE ROOM ON MONDAY.

I COUDN'T BELIEVE THAT AFTER HE WAS SO OUT OF IT YESTEDAY THAT THIS MORNING HE SAT UP AND THEY ACTUALLY GAVE HIM BREAKFAST. I HAD TO LAUGH AS HE SAID HE GOT "FAKE EGGS AND NASTY PANCAKES" AND HE DIDN'T EAT MUCH. iS USE TO MY HOME MADE BUTTERMILK PANCAKES AND TO REAL EGGS--AND I BET THEY DIDN'T ALLOW HIM THE AMOUNT OF BUTTER ANE SYRUP HE USES HERE.

I CALLED THIS AFTERNOON ABOUT 3:00 TO SEE HOW HE WAS DOING--AND ACTUALLY GOT TO TALK TO HIM. HIS FIRST WORDS WERE "MY CHEST HURTS LIKE HELL AND I AM NEVER GOING TO SMOKE ANOTHER **** CIGARETTE." hoPE WHEN HIS PAIN GOES AWAY HE REMEMBERWS ALL THIS AND KEEPS TO HIS WORD.

AGAIN i HEARD HOW NASTY THE FOOD WAS...EXCEPT FOR THE ICE CREAM (SUGAR FREE AND LOW FAT I AM SURE). aLSO HE IS READY TO GET INTO A ROOM SO HE CAN CALL PEOPLE AND NOT HAVE TO WAIT FRO THEM TO CALL HIM....AND HE FIGURES OUT OF ICU HE WILL GET RID OF MOST OF THE DRIPS AND MACHINES.

I ALREADY KNE THE FOOD WAS NASTY. THAT IS THE HOSPITAL I WAS IN WITH HIP SURGERY AND WHEN YOU CAN SIP YOUR OATMEAL THRU A STRAW---WELL THAT SAYS IT ALL. WAS LIKE THEY HAD DIPPED A SPOON OF OATMEAL IN A DISH OF BOILING WATER AND THEN REMOVED IT, JUST LEAVING A SLIGHT OATMEAL FLAVORED WATER. YUK--AND ALMSOT EVERYTHING WAS THAT BAD. HE IS GONNA REALLY DROP SOME POUND WWHEN HE GETS TO HIS ROOM AND THEY BRING IN ALL THAT DIET FOOD FOR HIM...AND ABOUT 1/4 OF THE AMOUNT HE USUALLY EATS AT THAT.

BUT AT ANY RATE, HE IS DOING GREAT AND BARRING ANY SUDDEN COMPLICATIONS, HE IS ON THE ROAD TO A FAST RECOVERY.
