Here I go again....ugh. Not sure what to think...wondering if my honey is...how shall I put it...fudging. All morning he has been telling me can't lift his legs...can't move without help... can't put the pillow under the edge of his bottom. But a short time ago I walked in and he was rearranging his pillow that he sits on, leaning so that he could move it and when I pushed his foot stool back up...he raised his legs (about 2 ft + off the floor and laid them on the foot stool without help. Really!!!!
When I told him that I had talked with the heart failure clinic and let him know appointment is about a month off and am working to get him in sooner he went ballistic and told me not to push it. Ugh!! Told him if we can get him in sooner am going to so that he can start feeling better.
I feel guilty to think that he might be fudging some on how he feels, but it makes me wonder. Right now I get him up from bed, chair, couch and toilet and wait on him hand and foot. If he gets better he knows that will not happen. I did talk with the cardiologists nurse and she has advised that his heart has worsened as has the fluid in the last two weeks. He has had little to no activity in the last 6 months though. I have tried and his doctors have told him he needs to be as active as possible. Not sure what to think anymore. Just keeping on as I have been and hoping they get him in to the HF clinic sooner than the original appointment.
Has anybody had a family member that has acted this way? Thanks....
