Concerning my deceased husband
2 and a half years ago, my husband passed away.I have to do
this. I am gonna do this a little at a time. he was 62yrs old
this is gonna be a long one.I realize not good things can
happen in any hospital.and with doctors. my husband was in the v.a. hospital with pneumonia.they told me he'll be coming
home with a bipa machine for his breathing till he gets better.the day we were leaving the v.a. the nurse said;no bipa machine,they told me I would have to bring him back for
sleep study to get the bipa for his breathing. before his app
appointment he died. cause was respiratory insufficiency.
less than a month coming home from v.a. I woke up 1a.m. to
check my husband.I told him lay on your side not your stomach. there was no response. I jumped off bed and turned
him over his eyes were open.I yelled at him to wake up,I started cpr yelled for my son to call911 I lifted him to
to floor and continued cpr then my son helped.when they came
they told to go out of room,then they came out and said sorry your husband is gone. now I am gonna be typing 20 some yrs. of notes I have writing concerning my husband.
my husband was a marine he was send to cambodia. he became
a marine with normal eyes,was not deaf in his left ear,and
he had his teeth. I got my husband to back to the v.a. hospital over 20 yrs. ago he kept saying he always felt like
he had something in eye. this was when we where first together. they found a hangernade fragment going threw the
back of his eye.the v. a. took his eye out ,took the fragment out and said to my husband you get a purple heart
my husband don't want it, can it pay my bills's ? of course
not. the v.a. showed my husband the fragment,they did not
put in his records they took out a hangernade fragment out
of the back of his eye, they put in his something else.
at that time my husband had 20% disability not enought for
transportation back and forth to v.a. for apppointments.
I had to work nights and days at a diner. all of a sudden
i get a phone call from the v.a. telling me they are gonna
pick my husband for his appointments.not a v.a. van,a man
came to our door dressed in a black suit, tie , and cap and
a stretch limousine for his appointment at the v.a. and he
told my husband he can go any where for lunch,and he said
there was a bar in the limousine.my husband did't care about
that, he wasn't filling well.I tried to get answers about the limousine, I failed.that eye they took the fragment out
was never right.never got any % for that. that 20% was for
scar where my husband was shot below nose sinus area and blew his front top teeth out,and for a permanent broken left
wrist, that the military never set right. when first started
taking my husband back to v.a. it opened up a can of worms.
first they could not fine his records. over 20 yrs. ago when
I started taking notes about all this, my husband asked me
whey are you taking notes, I said it's for you. He said he
can get in trouble cause he had to sign a paper,to say nothing about cambodia. My husband's records say something
different. I kelp taking notes. I have to take a break now
this is just the beginning of this story.I'll be back.
