Prayers for LindaSue's Jerry

I know alot of us love our LindaSue and all she has done for our LC community.

Jerry and LindaSue need our prayers right now..Please keep up with what is going on with them. Jerry is in the hospital.

Prayers and love for them both..

Quote:
3/20/10: I called the hospital this morning to find out where they moved Jerry to and the nurse said that Jerry doesn't appear to have a head injury but they're trying to get his blood pressure up. He kept saying that they were trying to get Jerry to "have a blood pressure", so apparently it was really low. They will keep him in Medical Intensive Care at least one more night or until his blood pressure is stable and then they'll determine if he can go home or move to a regular room.

Even later 3/19/10: This afternoon Jerry called to me from the bedroom to ask me some really crazy questions. He asked if there should be a mechanism under him with some kind of swirling blades and later he asked if there used to be spots on the ceiling fan blades over his bed. He kept asking crazy things like this and it was apparent that he was hallucinating and having delusions. I tried calling the doctor's office but they were closed by that time. So, I called a relative who's a doctor and he said that I should get Jerry to the hospital. If he did have a head injury from hitting the coffee table he needed to be seen by a doctor. Since I couldn't get Jerry into the car by myself, I had to call 911 and have an ambulance come. My son and I sat with Jerry in ER for a few hours but it was getting late so we came home. The doctor had seen Jerry before we got there and they'd done a few tests but he never came in while we were there so I couldn't talk to him. They're admitting him sometime tonight but we haven't heard yet what was causing Jerry's confusion. The nurse did say that his potassium is very high and his sodium very low and those things can cause mental confusion. I guess we'll find out tomorrow what's up. I'm really tired and need to get some sleep now.

Later 3/19/10: Jerry was doing so well this morning. He got out of bed on his own and used the bathroom, etc. After lunch he wanted to go take a nap so he got up to walk to the bedroom. I just left the room for a second when I heard him yell as he was falling. He hit his face on the coffee table and landed on the floor. He has scrapes on his face and both arms. There was quite a bit of blood on his arms but there are no deep cuts or anything like that. I'm home alone and I tried to get him off the floor with no luck. Jerry managed to slide himself from the living room into the bedroom and I then somehow managed to pull him up and then roll him onto the bed on his stomach. Somehow I got him turned over and settled under the covers but now I don't know what I'm going to do anymore. I can't take care of him alone and he can't attempt to get out of bed anymore at least not when I'm alone with him. I called his doctor but he's out of town until Monday. The nurse will send him a message to call me when he gets back. I'm not really sure if we have any options at this point though. He's not really sick enough to stay in a hospital and our insurance doesn't cover a nursing home or anything like that. Having someone come in a couple times a week won't help me take care of Jerry the rest of the time when I'm here alone with him. Jerry is wearing Depends all the time now but I've never had to change one with him lying in bed before. I guess I'll have to figure that out when the time comes because I can't let him attempt to walk to the bathroom anymore. My mind is numb right now and I don't know what we're going to do at this point.

It seems as though Jerry is in ICU with very low blood pressure now..LS doesn't know if they will move him to a regular room or send him home. Prayers for wisdom for the doctors, too.
