Hello and Welcome Alovinghusband....
You are most certainly a loving husband! Wow....what an incredibly amazing story! First off, I must offer gentle hugs to both you and your wife. I cannot believe all that she has been through. and with you right by her side all the way. She is one very lucky woman...first, just to be alive, after hearing that story....and second, to have a husband that is such a strong support through everything. Sounds like you are both blessed to have each other. I sat on the edge of my seat reading the story you told, and I was so afraid it was going to have a terrible ending....not the case. I'm overjoyed that your wife survived all that. She has got to be one incredibly tough woman. You're right, you summed it up there at the end.....she's never going down without a fight! And you know what? That's what it takes with Lupus. I've lived with this for 27 years now, diganosed when I was only 18, and I have fought many, many hard battles along the way....and I know the reason I am here is because I refuse to let Lupus take me. I will not let it win!
I would like to ask one question, if I may.....through the story I was shaking my head at the way the hospital handled some things, so I'm wondering where you are from? What country is this hospital in? It is certainly my opinion, but it sounds like an incredibly incompetent hospital. I'm amazed that YOU had to insist the nurses take your wife's blood pressure. I'm sorry for all the stress they put you through.
I'm glad you decided to join us and shared your wife's story. Thank you for taking the time to do that. Your wife is so young.....and she must have been so very scared through all of this. Please tell her I'm glad she came through it.
My heart aches for you...that your family wasn't there to support both of you when you desperately needed it. But you have found us now....and we have a family here on this forum of very caring, supportive, compassionate, helpful people that ALWAYS support each other through everything. We would love to have you and your wife join us and let us help you through the challenges ahead. You do not need to be alone any longer. We are here to lift you up when you need it, listen whenever you want to talk, encourage you in your battle, and answer your questions along the way. And we have some laughs and fun as well.
Again, I'm glad you found us and most of all, glad that your wife is a survivor. You are a wonderful husband and partner.
