Tough Week

Marco's cough is just getting worse with bloody sputum almost every time he coughs. The breathing has been out of control and he has a hard time just sitting up in bed. Larry has been here three times this week to check on Marco to make sure he is doing ok. Another medication was added for anxiety that Marco has been getting as he gasps for air.

Larry called in for a different oxygen machine because Marco has reached to max level on this little one he has now, which only holds 2-5 oxygen levels and changed it to 5-10 oxygen level. It has been very tough for Marco this week, with all the coughing his sides have been really giving him more soreness and slight pain. We just need to maintain pain management to keep Marco comfortable. We will keep you posted as things progress

Marco hope you find comfort in your pain management and hope you get your oxygen soon. Wish I could say or do something to ease your pain. Like you say, take it a day at a time. Love Leezy

Maria You are doing a wonderful job caring for Marc's every need. Marco said you are the best nurse! Like everything you do... You do everything with a great attitude. I know it has been a tough week to see him struggle more and more with every breath. Today I did not want to sit and chat with him because he was going to try to chat back. I could see that he was struggling to breathe. Let him know that it is ok not to have to talk and chit chat when we see him. Maybe just watching Nascar together while he drifts in and out of his sleep will be fine. yes?? Love you Marcs
