We had a good turn out for our blood drive....thank you to all of Marco's Rally Monkey's for showing up and supporting the a good cause. Marco was not able to attend because he had a horrible night of fevers and was just coughing all night. He sent me represent so that everyone would be willing to donate next time.
It was bitter sweet returning to COH since Octorber. I had an hour to drive in and an hour to drive back by myself and the emotions I was dealing with were emotionally exhausting.
Since Saturday, Marco has not been doing well. His breathing has gotten terribly worse, there is nothing he can do without getting absolutely winded. It takes him longer to try to catch his breath and it is just terrifying to see him gasping for air. I just feel helpless that there is nothing I can do but run to put the damn oxygen level to the max on the machine and cross my fingers that it gets to him fast enough before something happens to him.
Last night I was on the computer as he walked to the bathroom it didn't take long before he called me I ran to the bathroom door and he was turning colors and he said he needed the oxygen. Well it took him a while till he was back to "normal breathing" it was scary to see him like that.
He has been on the oxygen 24hours a day and is now taking his breakthrough medication 2 X a day aside from his normal doses. The fever is still there off and on in the day and night time. So far we have had a handle on it to bring it down fast. He has a harder time keeping a conversation too. As if all this is not enough he has been coughing up a lot of blood sputum which is not a good thing either. So far, we are just keeping an eye on him like hawks.
I was planning on putting up the pictures from last Saturday, but that will have to wait a little bit. But we would like to take the time to thank you all who donated on Sat. WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!
