She says she hurts & needs help. I don't think she understands
what has been going on with, and for, her.
I think one of the hardest things for us is when we know we have a problem, but the Doctors can't define it for us; or worse, they imply it is all in our head or imagination -- but, in this case it seems like they acknowledge there is a problem but can't quite sort it yet...so maybe they or you can provide her some comfort in that they know there is a real physiological issue and they are working to figure it out. Meantime fretting won't help as stress takes ones healing energy away. Remind her to use the pain meds while things are sorted. You are the guy in the boat, the rest of us are guessing about the conditions and praying you find the right winds. Good luck with the 'cocktails' too!

I think that’s an understandable side effect of where the illness struck her. The doctors must surely have come across a similar reaction before

I remember a GP ( MD) telling me that about 90 percent of patients recovered in any case without or maybe despite medical intervention. The doctors then took the credit.
That is not to say that some specialists are not brilliant at what they do.

Just got home from the hospital.
My wife is being transferred to Encompass Rehab in Arlington, TX. I'm not allowed to
visit her there. She still doesn't want to eat. She says she doesn't feel good. Can't get
her to say what makes her feel that way or where she's hurting. Said she was dizzy.
She's had episodes with vertigo before but way last year. I hope that this rehab
location will be able to get her eating and walking again.

I appreciate all of the prayers and well wishes for her that I've received. ❤️

That's all for now. :blue:
