Today discouraging news as we are advised that her lung condition is worsening, she had developed coughing fits and spiked a fever which indicated a possible bacterial infection, so we started asking about the results from the sputum test, but hospital had no answers for us at this time. They noted that they were doing all they could to keep her stable and working on getting us answers on why she was trending in the direction of a worsening condition. At this point I wanted more information so I requested to have access to her medical portal. The request was declined by many, because since she was incapacitated she was unable to give me consent. I thought as being the husband I had medical right since we were married. After getting off the phone with the hospital I was very discouraged on the lack of information being provided. Considering we not allowed to visit her at all and all communications were over the phone, and doctors only had time to contact me every other day. contacting friends and looking for lawyers to help me gain access to her medical portal, every minute counted we were running out of time to get answers. I'm so thankful for have been surrounded by family and friends that were part of the medical community. As I'm still searching for a lawyer to get us access to the hospital. Her mom says let me make some quick contacts I believe you still have rights none of this sounds right to me. Shortly after this conversation she tells me go and get your marriage license and bring your drivers license that's all you should need to gain access to her medical portal. We arrived at the hospital went to the office we were directed to and we were able to gain access to her portal. This was a God moment, really didn't want to have to goto this extreme to gain access to what I believe I had the right to have access to. God came through and showed up in this very moment it was such a Blessing to see God move in a time of difficulty. We praise Him.
