4 hours of “sleep” is not enough. I’ll let Jean tell the story in more detail, but here’s the quick and dirty:
Last night Jean went to the ER because of some severe back pain that moved around her chest and caused her difficulty breathing and vomiting. Not fun. So at 9pm I am driving like Mario Andretti to get to the hospital to get her all checked out and feeling better.
They did an EKG, Blood Tests, and Chest X-Ray. All of which came back fine, minus one small “abnormality” in the chest X-Ray. So she will be scheduling a doctor’s office visit today to see what that may be, now that radiology has had a chance to look it over.
She was released at about midnight last night with some Motrin and Darvocet, which seemed to help. At the least I felt better because she wasn’t tearing up any more.
So we get back home at about midnight-thirty and get ready for bed. When I look at the clock, it reads “1:00 AM”. I set the alarm for “5:00 AM” and am asleep as fast as the light can go out.
So today Jean is staying home from work to make doc appointments and figure a little more out. I am at work now, but will also be heading home once my manager comes in at about 8:30am so I can go home and sleep and take Jean to her appointments if needed.
She seemed to sleep though the night, so I believe she is feeling better now. The doc seemed to think the pain is muscle/skeletal related and may be due to a minorly pinched nerve in her back, but that is all speculation at this point.
No need to worry. Jean is fine. She just scared herself and me with the shortness of breath and chest pains.
Good times. I think I’ll take a nap at my desk now…
