    and a lot of patience keeps me sane , Karma and integrity to do the right thing is my motivation , Love is Life , and that the reward , just hope someones there for me when I can't function other than a paid person to watch me age and pass on , which I hope never happens .

    IMHO, it's you who deserves the majority of the prayers. Freddy is showing he wants to live, so he deserves a lot. The nurses, of course, but they're paid. You, Sir, are the man.

    a lot of work , and stress ,for me, but his arthritis is killing him . I now have to put socks and shoes on/off .he's completely blind in the day {its like a white out he describes} . But I rigged the house with Red lights and he can see and get around pretty good,at night ,He's turned to a hypochondriac , after listening to all the DR.shows..,some time I just walk away . H's loosing more range of motion ,not good ,but all in all he's doing fine,and eating better,and now that I'm cooking for him ,I'm eating alittle better too. ,and for some one who will always feel Constance pain and only 53 ,mentally he's 14 he trys to make it the best he can each day

    First of here's a picture of my room mate and friend DSCF2404.JPG

    I put his socks on and off and notice he is retaining water at a very fast rate so I been measuring them daily and last night they gained a lot of water and grew an full inch to the point he can't put pressure on his feet . I took him in to albany med ,,it nevers ends ,,FYI he had to show of his knife and JD 10 year anny. hat he likes to where .

    OH does any one know what causes water retention, Iknow all the soda and chips are on top of his problem

    Your definitely taking good care of Freddy. He will be able to get the extra fluid treatment needed.

    They should send him home with diuretics. Is he taking salt on his food?. That wouldn't help with fluid retention. Hopefully you will get other advice too.

    Freddy's looking sharp! My doctor has had me on furosemide pills to keep me from retaining water that shows up in my ankles. Only problem is I wind up peein' like a racehorse several times a day! :shakie:

    Just got off the phone may be a long night,, his heart is dancing in the tune of A fib again,, Problem do to body stress plus thinking he's going to die doesn't help . The biggest problem I got is dealing with a 53 year old with the mind of a young teenager .I can't make him understand ,a lot of his issues and the cause and effect of what he's putting in his body .

    Hope he gets better soon!

    Water retention can be caused by a lot of factors, I'm sure the hospital staff will figure it out.

    You sure do take good care of him. If I get sick, I think I know who I'm gonna call. :madaddy:

    Tell him to QUIT CHASING SKIRTS until he gets BETTER!! Plenty of time for that when he gets out.

    Tell him "Hi" back!

    Freddy came home for 5 min. he's moving with his sister who kicked him out in the first place because she can't stand him and told me last night as soon as he's 55 she's putting him in a home . There is nothing i can do about it ,she filing the court for legal guardianship ,, I feel empty and alone and sad for freddy . I don't see this working she will not help him change his cloth cut his toe nails of fingers get up every 20 min. because he drop something and can't find it , Change all the lights in the house Red so he can see at night .He's Fucked ,and I'm sad
