Hi Icanmanz (I believe your name is Irma, am I right?)
Thank you for your words.
I cannot go away I think that I can be of help, with two yrs. six month's taking care of
Jorge, six month's of those which I spent living at the hospital, and having gone through so many things, (once when the ventilator, stopped working and I had to disconnect him from the ventilator and had to act rapidly to get hold of
the ambu (ambulatory respirator) (that my son had left there in case something came up) and connected it to his trach to get air manually to his lung through his tracheostomy tube
not all hospitals in México have a buzzer's to call nurses that work, so I had to leave him for seconds
and go to the room door and scream for help and rapidly went back to keep putting air
into his lungs, till the technician came and brought another ventilator.
Another day I went to look for his treating Resident Doctor and when I got back to the
room Jorge was with his eyes wide open but had gone into a coma, he came out of it
a week later, two times this happenned, and when he awoke he asked what had happenned to him ( We communicated through an alphabet and looking at his eyes
I knew what he wanted to tell me; I could never finish writing what we went through.
I sure could write a book with experiences I had those six month's at the hospital.
Well if I can help any CAL and PAL with my experience I sure would like to do it.
I appreciate Al Pettite, Cindy, Capt. Al (Mt.Pockets) you Irma and so many others which I consider family.
God bless everyone on the Forums.
Baja California, México
Cals to late husband Jorge (I still miss him a lot)
