DH had a medical event shortly before midnight. He
had a least two episodes of loss of consciousness.
The first was in the bathroom when I heard him fall
just before midnight. The second was shortly after
when I was trying to get him back to bed. I insisted
on calling for the ambulance, answered as the first EMT
was acknowledging and asking where the emergency
was. I said, "My house, sweetheart" and instructed
them that they would need to have extra help as he
is not capable of standing. Our neighbor came as
well as 3 EMT's and I was told to act like the patient's
wife. Yeah, right. I am in EMT mode full bore, giving
instructions and notifying dispatch to get a helicopter
in the air or at least on standby. The newest EMT
told me that took guts but you do what you do best.
I kept up on his status with the radio and followed
them to the hospital. I was all business and I think
the nurses and doctor were expecting me to be a
basket case. They don't know me very well at all.
My nerves of steel will not permit me to do otherwise.
After all the initial tests, IV's, EKG's and the like,
he was taken by helicopter to the Heart Hospital.
His doctor will be there to check him over and see
what comes next. The flight nurse just called me
to say he feels better that he had all day. Since
I was gone babysitting, I had no idea that anything
was out of the norm.
I will be staying up and waiting for a call from
the doctor and Sparking while I wait as it is too
early in the morning to call anyone until I know
what is going on. If you don't hear from me later,
I will be attending to other things and know you
will understand completely.
Thanks for stopping by. I know I will be feeling your
prayers as the day goes on. HUGS!
