    Bill's been sick all weekend and thought he was well enough to go to work today. His boss called me about 1:45 this afternoon....he was stumgling when he walked and couldn't concentrate to talk properly. I told him call an ambulance and I had someone from my office drive me to the hospital to meet them. I just got home (DD Jacquie drove up to get me) as they have decided to admit him. Blood work looked good but the kidney function was bad...not sure how bad. They asked if he has ever had issued with this and he has not and his blood is checked often. So, more testing is being done. So, Leatherneck needs your prayers now. Thanks everyone for the shoulder...I'll keep you all posted.

    I just got off the phone with Bill. He is resting comfortably in a nice private room. They still have the IV drip going, took more blood and he is waiting for breakfast and to see the Drs...thanks everyone for the good thoughts and prayers. I will be heading up there early this afternoon with DD Jacquie to visit.

    Positive thoughts are on the way. Hope this turns out to be a "minor" problem & that drs will have him on the mend in no time. It seems like you have had 1 emergency after another these past wks; hope things turn around for your entire family & you have smooth sailing as summer approaches.

    UPDATE: The Dr said this morning the the sever dehydration along with all the meds he takes could have cause the kidney function to go screwy. He's on IV and they will keep checking his kidney function today and if it goes down to acceptable levels he could be discharged tomorrow. So, keeping my fingers crossed!

    Have been off-line. SunFlower called from wurk to fill me in. Very concerned for you both. I would suggest that you put your foot down and insist that they keep him until they (the doctors) KNOW what the problem is, AND have a solid program for correcting it. Don't settle for, "we think it was a combination of the dehydration and medications that caused this ...." I get so tired of doctors who treat the symptoms, but not the underlying cause.... Hold out until they can say, "Here is what caused this and here is how we are going to treat it to keep it from happening again."

    Prayers, of course, are going out ...

    Well....I'm a day late and more than a dollar short but the posts on Maw's ramble this morning sent me scrambling over here!

    Denise, I am so sorry that you are dealing with "you know what" again. It is so frustrating and even worse scary! Know that your Bill is in my thoughts and prayers. Loads of =hug=hug=hug being sent your way.

    Denise - please know that Bill and you are in my prayers. Hopefully, they will, indeed, find the definitive cause of his problems and be able to correct them.

    Sorry to read this, Denise. I hope they can get to the bottom of DH's kidney issues. There can be so many things causing this. I'm sure they'll run all the tests to get him on the right med. combination.

    Take care of yourself too, Denise. God bless...

    I hope rehydration will be the quick fix and he'll be back on his feet real fast. Keep us updated.
