not been on here in forever... ok about 5 months... and came back on to research something difficult.

My husband is back in CCU.I really don't know if he's coming out this time. He went in for a same day surgery to remove blood from behind his eye... he'd had the same surgery before.

He stopped breathing and was raced to the ER. This was last Wednesday. He's not coming out of this. He opens his eyes and moves. But we can't tell if its purposeful, if he's responding or what.

The hospital thinks its a stroke... but they can't do an MRI to confirm, so we are stuck in wait and see mode.

JP hasn't asked to speak to Daddy.. and only says Daddy is really sick.

yesterday JP said to me " I'm worried about you mom".. all I could say was that we will be ok.

When the heart attack happened in November I handled all the details just fine.. facts were mentally organized.. Now I can't put 2 thoughts together. I've made a mental separation to being a single parent... and just don't know whats going to happen.

Jan. 8, 2012 at 8:15 AM Have just read some of your blogs, so sorry for all the pain you and your son have been through:( Sometimes you cannot save a person who does not want to be saved. Perhaps he does not even realize this himself. So hard. You hang in there, and take care of you and your son, he needs you! Been there.
