On Tuesday night my Fiance (who is 25yo) went outside for a smoke (11:00), at 3:00 on Wednesday morning I woke up in a panic and he was not by my side. Thinking he possibly fell asleep on the couch I went to look for him only to find him unconcious in our garage. I could not wake him and he was hardly breathing I called the ambulance and had to do CPR. I don't think I've moved that fast in eight months..
He has been in the ICU since then, they had him sedated on a ventilator all day Wednesday. And woke him up on Thursday morning, They knew there was a chance of damage since he was down for so long, and his oxygen was only 50% when they got him into the ambulance (I litterally watched them intabate on our garage floor).
At this time his short term memory is none existent and lots of little things have escaped him from before this, for example he knows I am pregnant but does not know how far along. And of course most of the day is spent asking what day it is and if I have called his employer and what happened..
The worst part is that Tuesday was by far the most amazing night we had, had in a long time. We had decided we were going to elope this weekend and came up with an entire plan. Spent multiple hours having some much needed alone time at the end of the night in bed. And went out with his dad to tell him the news of our plan. All of which he doesn't remember.
They don't know how bad the damage it is until the MRI, which is at 8:00 tomorrow morning, I hate this so much how am I supposed to focus on him and the fact that the nursery isn't done (along with other baby things) and god only knows with this kind of added stress how long she really has until she's here. I know it could be worse trust me I do, I thought he was dead when I found him out in the garage in the first place, but I am just so mad at the whole situation. One of the moments that really make you ask WHY?
Any positive thoughts are appreciated, very much needing them right now..
Oh and I should mention that at this time the cause for the whole thing is still unknown, they are just assuming it was some sort of heart episode in which his heart stopped for whatever reason knocking him out. Also during the time he was unconcious he vomited aspirating all of it causing him not to have sepsis/pneumonia or something. I've heard so many different theories.
