my poor hubby

Afternoon all, hubby`s just gone off to the hospital.

You all know how much I depend on him, as my rock, my other half, my soulmate......he`s been on a new drug for his rheumatoid arthritis and rang the hospital, to ask about some side effects he`s having.  he only told me today that he`s having breathing problems at night and his pains have not reduced at all since he`s used this drug.

 

it is called humera...he injects fortnightly.

 

The rheumatology nurse he spoke to said to go straight away for an x ray and blood tests.

 

He helped me to the loo and then dashed off. I told him to slow down and do what the hospital says...he says I come first..........no, if he is out of action then we are both up the swaney, eh?

 

3.15pm now...wonder how long he`ll be.

 

If any of my mates are reading this, please talk to me to stop my imagination running wild, yeh?

hi poll

im sorry you're having such a rough time at the moment.

im sure your hubby will be ok and that the hospital will soon sort it out.

 

he's really in the right place now and who knows it may just be a side effect of the drugs or something else thats easily resolved.

 

what you need to do is focus on something else for a little while.  when you're fretting what result will that give you?

 

it will only make you feel stressed, unwell and jumpy.  remember that whatever it is, you will work through it together as you always have.

 

i know it sounds easy but he's probably at the hospital worrying about you and how you're going to be worrying !

 

sending you lots of love and best wishes.

Thanks Chris, for your support. Just read about the drug humera on line…sounds terrible and to be avoided!

Don`t recognise the name floopy…were you on before with a different user name?

Hi Poll, remember how these things can take hours and hours love... and now I'll tell you the obvious... if you get too stressed your symtoms will get bad and then you will be no good for him when he gets home. I know I know Poll it's a bit like saying that god made little green apples (although I could debate that theory!)... but try hon to stay calm and strong. 

Please let us know when he gets home and what they said.

Thinking of you both,

looking at the clock and wondering…

I was on the old boards but didn’t post often I just used to read a lot of the posts when I was first diagnosed (only last year but it seems like a lifetime ago) you often brought a smile to my face when I was feeling down - you have such a positive attitude to life

Chris

Thanks Pat…yeh what you say makes sense…but I feel so useless, sat here, watching the clock go round…only been 40 mins since he went…rang my sis…her hubby has same complaint as my hubbys......said humera didnt suit him either…just read the side effects…OMG!!!

I`ll let you know when hubby returns.

luv POllx

Please do and hang on in there hon...

Hi Poll,

Ahh your poor hubby - I don't know what I'd do without my other half, I rely on him for so much. 

I persuaded him to have a flu jab this year as he is my carer and as you say if anything happend to him we'd be in trouble.....later in the evening he had a reaction - chest became very tight and breathing difficult - thankfully it passed after a few hours and he is now fighting fit again but it did worry us both when it happened

I'm sure the hospital will sort your hubby out and maybe suggest an alternative treatment if this one doesn't agree with him.

Chris

Sorry you and your other half are having such a bad day, Polly.  I hope that all is well and he is back home with you soon.
