Well we are having a horrible time at my house. My Dh who is 32 is having alot of health problems. He was diagnosed with sleep apenia a feww wekks ago. So he has been on oxygen during the night. We live up on a little hill and last night he chased our dogs up it. By the time he got to the top of the hill he couldnt hardly breath. We checked his O2 and found it was low. So he spent the rest of the night on the oxygen. Well today he was at work and I called him there. When he heard the phone ringing he was out side he had to climb a whole sum of five steps to get back in the building. Doing this dropped his oxygen again, this time he couldnt get it back up so we had to go to the E.R. we spent most of the night there. They did chest xrays which came back clear. BUt they did blood work to see if he had a blood clot. The test came back abnormal so they did a CAT scan on him to see if they could find a clot. This came back with no results. Even though his O2 was still low and they couldnt figure out what the problem was they sent him home and told him that it was something he needed to take up with our Family Doc. who isnt in the office most of the week. I ended up having to buy a oxometer to test O2 today as he took the oxometer he had back to the oxygen bussiness and they "didnt have another one avilable" And that really made me mad becauase our health insurance doesnt cover them, and they arent cheap. I ended up spending almost 300.00 on the stupid thing. So now I am up watching him to make sure he doesnt crash on me, and have been checking his O2 levels about every 30 minutes. A normal level is up in the 90's. He cant seem to keep his O2 above 85. I cant believe how stupid some Doctors are. I cant believe that they send people home who clearly have some thing serious going on,and dont even bother to figure out what is cuasing it in the first place. This same darn hospital tried killing me a week ago. I came down with strep throat, and I am allergic to peniccilon. So of coarse they had to give me a antibiotic with the stuff in it. And that landed me three days in the hospital trying to recover from that. Now I feel they are trying to kill my DH!!! Ihave been sitting here staring at him and we are working on 5:00 am right now. And the whole time the oxometer has been reading between 76 and 85. He is really pale, and at times his lips turn a little blue. I called the E.R. at about mid night, and told them I thought he needed to come back in and they flat tell me that they wouldnt admitt him again as they dont have a answer to his problems and that it was something our family Doc. needs to take care of.The next Hospital is 45 miles away, and it is just as bad. The hospital I think he needs to go is in Grand Junction which is about 75 miles from us. I dont have a problem with taking him that far, but He refuses to go that far becaus he is worried that since he doesnt have a portable oxygen tank his O2 will drop to low and that thought is horrific since most of the area between us and that other hospital is nothing but adobe hills. I am reall upset, and am to scared to go to sleep with him this way. I really thin khe needs some serious help but I dont know how to get him it. And this all doesnt make a bit os sense to me why he is having these problems. He doesnt have a cough, or is wheezing. ANd this has just came on so fast I know this is serious, but I cant get him the help he needs. I swear to god that if he is permentally injured, or anything happens to him I will have to kill that doctor. I cant believe this. I am waiting for the the clock turns 8 and the head haunchos drag there A%^ into the hospital because heads will roll over over this. And come heel or high water I am getting him some help. There is going to be a law suit over this I think, I wont rest until this stupid Doctor looses a rights to practice medicine. Okay I have vented and i am sorry if i am to negitive, but this has got to be the worst night mare for any one.And I am left with sitting here praying to God he doesnt get any worse and I can figure out how to come up with with a portable oxygen tank so I can get him to the next hospital.were we can figure out what to do to help him. I really love and need my DH. And I have three kids oldest is 9, and the youngest is going to be 2 in April, and they need there Daddy. And I am so dumbfounded that there is even a doctor out there that is actually doing more harm to people than he is doing good. I know this is long and I am sorry for that. But thank you guys for being patient with me right now. Just please pray for my DH if you all would. Thanks.
