Nervous WreckTue, 01/12/2021 - 5:24PM
My Husband had LVAD surgery on Friday 1/8/2021. About 10 pm that night they had to put a tube down his throat to see what was going wrong. By 1:00am Saturday Morning I had to consent again for them to go back in him because the right side of the heart wasn't strong enough. Well Sunday the nurse told me he squeezed her had and wiggled his toes. Yesterday I called to check on him and the nurse put me on speaker and suprisingly he was talking. You just don't know how that felt. It was like the stress was lifted. The nurse called today and said he wanted to talk to me. All he kept saying was call 911 and get the police up here something is not right. He told me people were taking over the hospital and shooting everyone they saw. He told me he saw it. All I can do is cry because I know he was talking out of his head. I'm so scared that I'm going to lose my husband. I read up on hallucinations after heart surgery and came across delirium and now I wish I never look it up. Has anyone else experienced this. I don't know what I would do without my husband. I feel like I'm going crazy right now.
