Vince woke me at 4 this morning complaining of pressure in his chest and feeling like he couldn’t breathe so we went to the hospital in our little town. They did a couple of tests, which showed he at least was not having a heart attack. There’s no cardiologist in our town so they sent him by ambulance to Joplin. I went home and showered, waited for daylight to let the chickens out. I could have let them out earlier but I was scared to go back there in the dark by myself.
Now we sit at the hospital in Joplin waiting for more tests. I’m hoping everything checks out and we get to go home tonight . . I’m also wishing I’d gone to bed before 1 a.m. this morning. It’s impossible to sleep in this straight chair . . we’re still in ER.
I stuffed sock yarn, the Kindle and the netbook in my bag but I’m wishing I’d brought my pillow. When they come to get Vince for his tests, if they say he’s going to be gone for an hour, I’m going to my car to take a nap!
And, if they say he’s going to be gone for two hours . . I’m going down the road to get sushi! 🙂
