Hello dear Comforter...

I can feel your fear in the words that you write and I'm sure your husband's doctors have told you how serious delirium tremens can be.

Most people are usually over the symptoms in around 3-5 days, but others have gone longer than 7 days so please hang in there. ICU is the proper place for him at the moment, and I'm sure he's getting the best of care.

It's quite some time since I've worked among people with this condition and I don't trust my memory to give you valid advice, but my guess is that he's going to need ongoing care for some time.

I'm sorry that you also are suffering at this time, and I wish I had the answers that you seek.

Please know that we're here if you need a shoulder to lean on.
