    Maybe you can tell her that she will be a bigger help to you if she is well rested and gets a good night sleep at home. Will you have some recovery at home when you get out of the hospital? You will need her 100% then.

    Your a lucky guy though. I work at a hospital and I see too many folks that get dropped off at the door and never get a visitor.

    You should be happy that she loves you enough that she wants to stay. I worked with a guy that was on his death bed and his wife was at our plant talking to HR to see if she could get an increase in the company paid life insurance:wow:

    I know what it's like to be in the hospital and nobody cares, but I also know what it's like when you've so many visitors you feel like you have to entertain them.

    Your wife wants to help. There's something to be said for having someone there to have your back. But you could also mention all the things NOT in the hospital that she could be doing to help you. That way she feels the satisfaction of helping you, and you get some time alone.

    Get well soon.

    Can you get set up with Skype for video chat? My guess is that she is worried about you and wants to see that you are okay.

    If this is her way of coping, let her do what she needs to do so long as its not hindering g your treatment. It's very difficult to be on the "caregiver" side and have such a total loss of any control. Rightfully so, most attention goes to the patient, but sometimes the spouses get lost in the noise. As Paul said above, it's also a very good thing to have your own advocate with you at all times if possible. Maybe someone can spell your wife?

    Honey, I keep waking up to check on you. Why don't you go home so we both can get some good sleep.

    Be upfront and honest. Let her know you like her being there during day. But you would like her to go home early at night and call before you/she goes to bed.

    Last time I was stuck in the hospital for a week, I had the same problem. She wanted to be there 24/7, I didn't.

    I was a miserable SOB and lacked the social manners to tell her politely, so I did the angry yelling approach and it only worked because the hospital staff told her to leave because her presence was making me upset.

    The person in the hospital bed is the one who should decide. The hospitalized individual's needs outweigh the emotional needs of the spouse.

    First off, what wrong?
    Second, good luck.
    Third, have the doctor test her for VD and tell her it is because you have vd.:shocked: Then again, we don't want her to kill you.

    On a more serious note, how far away is home? Do you need to book a hotel for her?

    If you try to send her away, listen to a "song narrated by Elvis Presley, called "Softly".

    you have to believe how strongly she cares for you and needs to be with you.
