First and foremost, Scott is relatively okay.
He started feeling very strange late this afternoon. I checked his BP and it was very high. He started getting nauseated. He seemed somewhat out of it. So, I started worrying big time and called 911, Paramedics came, assed, and they thought he was okay and could stay here. Having gone through what we did before with the seizure a year ago, I pushed hard and they took him to a local hospital. A different one from last summer.
CT has been run as has blood work. His body chemistry is way off, but we caught things in time and prevented a seizure. He has been admitted for the night so they can start working him slowly back to where he should be body chemistry wise. They are also running kidney function tests to make sure everything is okay that way.
I am home, exhausted, and very stressed. Also very glad that things are not way worse.
"Relatively okay" is good and I hope you can soon remove the "relatively" part from that phrase. There's a lot of people out her who care for Scott and for you, Kevin. "Hang in there" is easy to say and hard to do, but I hope it can be a bit easier knowing there are many of us on your side.
Thanks, Jerry. It has been a long night.
Sorry, Kevin. Life is too darned hard.
Yep. Coping is getting harder too.
Thank goodness you made the call and made them take a close look. It could have turned out badly if you hadn't stuck to your guns. Hope you both can get some rest and start to recover. Jeanne
Doctors and nurses last night and again today were emphatic that I made the right call. I feel a bit vindicated as clearly the paramedics were wrong in what they thought.
They booted him around noon today. We both have the feeling they might have kept him through another night if not for the Covid crush. They are getting hammered in the worst way.
Glad to learn Scott's all right and that you, Kevin, have a little less stress to contend with.
