Jingling SLC your way.
Thanks, he's back home. Now docs say no heart attack, just abnormal EKG.
Well, I guess that is good news, but do they know WHY he had the abnormal EKG? How is he feeling now?
Don't forget to take care of yourself too.
Well that's a relief. Still jingling for you both.
That's good news.
That's a relief to hear!
I'm glad he is doing better! And I'm sorry you got an ambulance crew that told you not to hurry to the hospital. That isn't cool or needed .
Well the explanation was VERY TECHNICAL-
'well it's still abnormal in the same way it was abnormal in February, SOOOO.....' and my answer was like 'WHAAAT????'
I don't understand. Why is that bad?
And actually, they took their sweet old time setting him up there, he was there for about 3 hrs, had two very run of the mill heart tests(as far as I could tell), then decided to transfer him to another hospital, and that was 30 min of driving and then HOURS before the doctor there saw him.
I INSISTED he hadn't had his medication all day and that he wasn't leaving the 1st hospital until they gave him some medication. T hey were trying to load him on the cart, and I was blocking them from leaving, I kept saying 'he is not going anywhere until he gets some medication.'
SO....there was a delay of about 8 hrs before he got his normal dose, and he didn't get an emergency dose until MIDNIGHT.
So it was over 12 hours before he got an emergency dose.
Do I sound mad? I am. The whole POINT of going to the hospital is to immediately give him an emergency dose of hydrocortisone, and that is supposed to be an IV, not pills, for God's sake. They can die if they don't get hydrocortisone quickly.
It was just bad all around. The paperwork said he was admitted for 'chest pain and dizziness.' He never ONCE said he had any chest pain, and he was a whole lot more than 'dizzy' for heaven's sake.
Sounds very frustrating slc. I am sorry you are having to go through this. Jingles to you and your husband.
