We don't know when it malfunctioned since were were all just getting up when the HHC nurse got here. He said he felt suffocated. Blood oxygen levels should be in the mid to high 90s. His was 80. She had him stay in bed until the tanks were delivered. He has plenty of backups now. He still gets out of breath if he walks across a room.
I can't believe how thin and frail he got after 3 weeks in the hosp.
I asked his sister to make sure he was given nausea medication because that's why he can't eat. When not nauseous he can pack the food away.
