I think they've got it....

We still don't have an "absolutely positive" test result for DH, but the Dr. says "We've ruled everything else out. I've seen some cases of H1N1, and this is behaving the exact same way. I'm about 90% sure that it's H1N1." So there we go.

It's so strange to hear DH wheezing and see that the traditional asthma treatments aren't doing much to help. But tonite I think the steroids they've been giving him are helping. He seems to be having an easier time talking. And he doesn't seem to be coughing as much (but I know they gave him some pretty powerful cough syrup, too) I think he's on the mend. But when I ask him if he feels better, he says "no". I'm going with my gut on this one (although my gut really isn't very smart) and believing that DH is in recovery mode. I hope.

Oh--and they're giving him insulin at the hospital, apparently his blood sugar wasn't as "under control" as he thought it was :-(

I'm enjoying knowing that he's there and someone else is taking care of him!!!! (I know that's bad) (but true). Let them do the nagging for a while. I don't think he'll be coming home tomorrow, but I guess time will tell.

I don't think that's bad at all! Really, the hospital is the best place for him to get better right? I am sure that's a huge relief. Sure it's a weight off your mind too but that's just a bonus really...:)

I hope DH feels better soon.

Well your hubby has my sympathy when it comes to hospitals and diabetes. When I was hospitalized for heart surgery, they maintained very tight control, which meant I was poked and prodded and injected every two hours! And my numbers weren't all that high. Just another reason to get out of the hospital!
