My poor dear man

Himself was way too weak today and was unable to get out of bed...Called the home health nurse...who sent him to hospital via ambulance  Test results showed large blood clots in both lungs...probably caused by the feeding tube operation 10 days ago. 
 Evidently any operation can cause blood clots and since his legs are paralyzed he is a candidate for those anyway.  
So, ER sent him to ICU where he is quite sick, heart involvement.
Doc said someone should stay overnight with him.
I was voted out and my daughter was voted in.
I was told to go home and rest up for tomorrow.
I have turned into my mother.
I am wired and eating peanut M&M's, well  known to reduce stress in wives prone to neurosis.
Life as we know it can change in a moment.
Stay tuned.

I'd drive to the store to buy your peanut M & M's and anything else you wanted...and I"m willing to ship!

My thoughts are with you and your family, it is so hard to be strong for everybody. You must take care of yourself. M & M 's sound just about right.
