Peter has been home from the hospital for about a week, still recovering from the pulmonary embolism, pneumonia and sepsis. He is incredibly weak and is pretty much confined in bed. The swelling in his legs is a source of discomfort, plus the ascites build up.

What is perplexing me is that he has no voice. Just a rasp. He is hard to even understand. He does have coughing fits but I don't see that being the reason why he can't talk anymore. Any ideas?

BTW, I STILL haven't heard from his oncologist ...I have been calling the office for close to two weeks!!! We can't help but to feel utterly forsaken and disregarded. And this is supposedly one of the best hospitals in the country. I am disgusted.

Kerry
