hwyaden Posted October 27, 2013 Share Posted October 27, 2013 hubby was really agitated when we visited today - seeing the kids really upset him and he just kept asking to go home. it was heartbreaking and the nurses had to come and try to calm him down and told me to give him a quick kiss goodbye and leave - it felt like when i left the kids on their first day at school. the nurse asked me when i got there if there was anything i could think of that would calm him down. i left them some of his favourite cd's but the only thing that relaxes him is his computer. he's becoming quite agressive with the staff and is being sedated at night. the nurse said she had no idea how long he'd be in hospital but it would probably be many more months given how serious his brain injury was. i'm just feeling so tired and at the end of my tether. we had to celebrate one of our kids' birthdays yesterday without him and the thought of not having him here at christmas is more than i can bear right now. i have to stay upbeat and positive for the kids but right now i just want to go to bed and cry. when does it start to get better? the nurse said two months is nothing in the recovery of someone with an injury like his but that two months have seemed like a lifetime.
