death

Untreated the heart will enlarge and EF will continue to decrease and the outcome is cardiac arrest (arrhythmia). There are stages of heart failure and the final stage is shortness of breath, unstable angina (chest pain without exertion), and may be bedridden with an oxygen supply. One cannot predict an individuals' longivity. I was written off 6 years ago, and feel well today. Hide the aspirin pills!
I've had a hard time, of course, but a friend of mine with a young dog with kidney failure said she was the same way at first.-crying all the time, etc. Now it is better. I so appreciate your interest. God bless you and your Peke as well!
My mother received tainted blood years ago and now she is in her final days of liver cirrhosis. The last 36 hours I would never have been able to deal with this experience had it not been for the six month I was able to take care of my husband. I began to feed mom a teaspoon of mashed potatoes when blood came spewing from her nose and mouth, black blood thick with clots that looked like garden slugs with bright red blood on them, this continued on and off for almost 24 hours.
Being close to death is nothing new to me, having done so at the age of 9 month (according to my mom) with major surgery to correct the cleft palette I was born with. Then, being pushed off a third floor window ledge and shattering my right femur and left wrist had pretty much the same result. Having three perforated ulcers in my stomach and the surgeries to save my life again brought me to the brink of death.
What do you say to your wife of 39 years who is now in the last stages of CHF. She knows it and is afraid of the ending. She doesn't want to leave her beloved family. I watch her everyday out of love and I can't stand it knowing that the end is approaching. What do I say to a Princess?
She passed away in 04 at our home with hospice care and I'm having flashbacks of that final week now - I do not think I have the strength to go through it with my own mother, whom I love even more dearly. She has a bad heart and I am praying that God will be merciful, let her make her peace with him and everyone else and then take her quickly before she suffers more. Thanks for responding, NYC Lady.
and we always wish we that we might have done something differently. I hate the reruns of the final hours....I have them with Two Bits...and I have them with Chainsaw ( my boxer ).....I know people say Time will ease the pain...I know that for me, the pain is never less, but it will come less often, and eventually only when we allow it to happen and CHOOSE to feel it. I still have 3 dogs, I call them my support group....when I give them hugs and kisses..I give them extra ones and.
Apparently it bled quite heavily but it took a lot of the pus with it (yuk). Because it bled heavily, they have cut back on the doseage of anticoagulants they were giving him. He did get a big scare and ended back on oxygen for a short while but his sats are 100% - they say his sats are better than a man much younger than him so they seem to be quite pleased with him.
I actually was diagnosed with Hypothyrodisim after I awoke and my heart was going crazy.. I actually was diagoned with "broken heat syndrome" or "stress cardiomyopothy" which was due to my thyroid t4 leves being over 150! Crazy I got to this point so fast as the prior year my thyroid level was only 1.58. I was just given the green light by my cardio dr that my heart is fine but still have palpitations.
I am five days in to taking 20 mg of prozac daily. I take about 150 mg of hydro daily along with .75 to 2 mg of xanax and 6 to 8 soma. I started talking the prozac for depression (obviously) and to gear up for weaning off the hydro and soma. The hydro is obviously the hardest to get off of. I do not abuse the xanax, thank god, and find that taking it really helps me when I feel panic setting in. It also allows me to go longer between doses of hydro.
