    No, it's not going to be a lesson well learned, nobody is learning anything, him or his doctors. This has been happening over and over. I wrote a registered letter to his doctor complaining about the care he was getting, they bumped up his medication 10 mg, then a few months later he had another crisis. So they bumped it up 10 mg more. And then we have another crisis.

    I got there in plenty of time. To sit there and wait. He got transferred to another hospital. Half hour in heavy traffic, then another 4 hour wait - for nothing. He still has had no medication, no treatment, no fluids, no cardiologist and no doctor. I had to pitch a fit just to get them to give him the medication he normally gets at the first hospital and neither they nor the first hospital would increase it (which they did every other time he had an Addisonian crisis).

    Well, at least he has you to advocate for him. Best to you both.

    Hope everything is ok, saying a prayer for you tonight. Keep posted on his progress. I know doctors can be a fight sometimes. They are jackasses others. I am pulling for you and your husband.

    I really don't think Manes meant anything negative by this.

    I'm jingling your husband is okay. If I didn't hound my husband he would be the same way. Stubborn. Please update when you get news and hang in there.

    I didn’t read anything negative either, but I’m sure that SLC is just stressed right now.

    Jingles from here as well.

    I think it was just this thread and the other one about carving stone may have pushed SLC over the fence. Manes apologized for it and wished them well. As most of us have. It was a stressful situation for her and her husband.
