In case you were wondering where I was, it has been a hard week for me. On Tuesday hubby had a heart episode and I called 911 to get an ambulance to the house. They came in five minutes, checked his vitals and we were on our way to the hospital. Since it was serious we were then transported to another hospital in the city, where he has been since.
Today I take him home. After five of days of getting no rest (hubby’s words) but excellent care, he will be returning home to rest. I sit here writing this before I go to pick him up and think about the past five days. What have I realized?
I hate sleeping alone (so much I put a pillow on his side so it feels like he is there.
The house is extremely quiet. Not that he is a noisy husband, but the tv is always on…..I am not a tv person so I never put it on when I returned from visiting him (except to watch the Mets lose, 😦 another post sometime…..and so I returned to a quiet house and woke up to one – yes that is how much the tv is on.
I dont like eating by myself…..and so I lost a few pounds (the upside)
I drove into the city each day, so dealing with traffic was horrendous and parking in a lot is inflating my credit card….but he did get the best of care. The doctor was amazing in the procedure he got; the nurses were personable and caring to his every whim (and he had a lot of whims)…they were even caring to me. Taking this trip back and forth caused me to have some health issues of my own, and one day when I arrived and my feet were swollen, they brought me in a recliner so I can sit with my feet up. As I was there all day, they offered me drink and food. They explained any meds or preps they were doing. They are the best nurses ever. And I do know they have the hardest job.
And so it is time to leave, take my drive in, and bring my man home…..I am very happy. Have a great day!
