In this, the shortest month of the year, (February), I find myself in the hospital for the second time.
I had scratched my leg, (it was itching,) and low and behold it began to hurt.
I showed my sweet wife and she immediately called the Dr and I ended up here for 4 days.
No, not because of the leg.
I had Congestive Heart Failure, due, I later found out because of Pulmonary Hypertension.
A vain in my heart was closed up and would not allow blood and oxygen to flow freely to my lungs.
Shortness of breath, weakened body, just wanted to sleep all the time. Was the result.
They successfully got the fluid out of my lungs, (but I still have fluid in my belly).
My kidney ( I only have one,) Dr Doesn’t want me taking anymore water pills, so it looks like it will be a needle in my belly to drain. (Oh Boy!)
I was home for a while and the sore leg now, is swollen and extremely painful.
Back to the hospital 13 hours ago for another 3 or 4 days. (? We will see)
I really wanted to point out and apologize to my night nurse. The pain meds I received only made me painless for a couple of hours.
I had hoped for much longer.
She is wonderful and forgiving of my short temper and fixed me up as soon as she could.
I read letters to our local Newspaper, ‘The Carteret News-Times,’ and often it is compaints.
Not from me though, I have been blessed every time I have had to stay here.
Clean, professional, caring, knowledgeable and pleasent staff. From the maintenance people to the Nurses and Drs.
I give it a 5 star rating for bed, breakfast and recuperation.
I also want to thank Dr Davis and his staff for wonderful care. I am so blessed!
Thanks for visiting.
