My friend and I are in much the same place as you and your husband, she too has pain in her stomach/bladder area and high temp as well as vomiting but she is already in the hospice for much the same thing as now so they are treating her with antibiotics as they are not 100% sure where the infection is at the moment.
I hope you do manage to get some sleep and I must go to bed now too. Its awful to have one ear to the phone in case it rings isn't it. Try to get some sleep as you need to look after you too x x x x
Hope you get better news tomorrow x x x x (well later today now!)

That dilemma of should you stay or should you go home is horrid but I am sure you did the right thing. You need sleep, or at least rest if sleep doesn't come, and it sounds like you could have an infection to fight off too. The nurse thought you should go, your husband wanted you to go so you did - don't feel bad about that.
I just wish I could give you a big hug and chase away some of that fear and I hope you found your husband more comfortable today and that the IV antibiotics are already having some effect.
Let us know how things are today,
Hello everyone who wrote a message of encouragement to me. You really are lovely people. My husband looked a different man when I went to vist yesterday. He even looked fuller in his face, was quite chatty with everyone. He got a un. .it of blood and was getting another unit today, but tonight I was disappointed at the change, he was very sleepy again and I found out that his blood had really gone down that was why they were giving him more blood.....I just dont know what to think anymore feel so tired of all the ups and downs its like when you get a happy day the next thing you know its snatched away from you and a bad day follows.
Hi Anna, hope today is a better day. The ups and downs are indeed exhausting, so I hope that you got some rest, and that your husband is in good spirits today. Thinking of you xx
