Bogdan’s in the Hospital

My beloved husband, Bogdan was admitted into the hospital this afternoon around 12. Yesterday, Monday, he woke up w/ a backache and headache.  We went about our normal day. Around 4pm or so we where at the grocery store and he was really cold and said he might have fever.  When we got home I checked it and it was 101. something.  I gave him ibuprofen and an hour later it was 103. I freaked out and called a friend who is a nurse.  She told me to get this drug from the pharmacy.  turns out its only by RX, but the pharmacist gave me 2 doses anyways.  It worked and with cold compresses,  Bogdan’s fever dropped to 98 by 10pm.  He still had a headache but was doing better.  He woke up with a fever of 102.  That’s when we went back to the hospital.

I have much to say about our hospital experience which includes having to buy ibuprofen and Tylenol b/c the hospital doesn’t provide it and having to buy IV lines because the hospital only gives you 2.  But I fear it will end up being a rant about socialized medicine, and I try not to get political with this blog. And I’m much too concerned for my husband.

I stayed this evening well past visiting hours and came to the mall to use their wireless to send this prayer request.  When I left his fever was going down.  The nurses hadn’t given him anything.  I continued to take his temp and when it hit 102 again, I went to the nurse and asked for something. That is when she sent to the store for ibuprofen.  I got back and give it to him.  I was then told they couldn’t start the IV antibiotics until his fever was gone.  I told the nurse, ibuprofen wouldn’t work and told her what I had had to do the evening before.  That’s when we finally got some results.  He’s scheduled to get antibiotics around 9 pm tonight.  They only do IVs in the morning and in the evening.

I’m not allowed back until tomorrow afternoon during visiting hours, but will try to sneak in earlier. Please pray for my husband to heal quickly and come home soon.  We still don’t know exactly what is wrong. They say he has a “cold” in his kidneys…some sort of infection. Please pray for God’s healing!
