So the last 9 days have been pretty exciting around here. I’m not sure if exciting is the right word but we’ll go with it for now.
Some of you follow me on Twitter or Facebook and so have gotten little snippets of things but I haven’t gone into detail. I’ve also not been answering email in the way that I like to. Which means I like to get back to people within a day and give good detail with my answers. Also I’m sure you are curious about the last bits of time because things haven’t been “right” around here.
I’m going to tell you now that things seem to be better and so you, my friends, don’t have to be worried anymore. I am thankful for all of your good thoughts and prayers.
I may get in trouble with my darling for this but I’m doing it anyway.
So Lou’s birthday was on Monday the 9th. We had a lovely dinner with the family, came home and had birthday cake and just relaxed for the evening. Around 1:30 AM Lou was having terrible pains in his stomach. So bad he was laying all curled up. Next thing I know he passed out and fell in the bathroom which is when I decided I should probably get him to the hospital.
Many people came into our house that night including Police officers, Fire Fighters and Paramedics.
Lou was taken to the local hospital where they got him stable, did some tests and decided to send him to a larger hospital in Ann Arbor where they did more tests and he spent a comfortable and wonderful 5 days. (I’m kidding about the comfortable and wonderful) Turns out he had had a heart attack.
He came home on Friday afternoon, and Saturday was uneventful.
Sunday he wasn’t feeling well. Monday morning around 4AM we decided he should go back to the hospital where they were very worried about him again. This time he got a helicopter ride to Ann Arbor. (I wonder how much that will cost.)
He got stabilized and they watched over him for two days. This time looks like a combination of an infection and some unwanted side affects of a couple of his new medications. Things seem better. He looks much better. He’s home now.
He will be taking some time off of work and not shoveling snow for a while. I am trying to stop worrying and get back to work.
I just wanted to take a moment and let you know that things are better and I will work on getting caught up with all of the work I let slide in the last 9 days.
In other news, I did get some spinning and knitting done in the hospital so that’s good!
Also, those little chair/beds they have there are not comfortable. And, hospital pillows suck.
