Crazy Weekend...

The weekend from hell has revealed it's ugly face...

I was off on Friday, but Michael had to work. Before leaving he complained about soreness in his right leg again (he had previous pain in that leg about a week ago). None-the-less, he headed off to work.  About 2pm he calls me to let me know he is on the way home to pick me up on the way to the emergency room... WTF>>??


At around 2.30pm we arrive at the ER at Maryview Hospital, they are expecting him (the doctor's office called them after Michael refused to be transported in an ambulance) and escort us both back to an exam room. After reviewing the blood-work results and the x-ray from the doctors office and taking vitals of their own, they whisk him off for a CT Scan...

Long story short, Michael has Pulmonary Embolisms (several of them) and was admitted to the hospital at about 12.30am... I spent most of the day yesterday with him watching TV and talking... He actually feels ok and is a bit bored (regardless of the blood thinners they are pumping into his body). The hospital stay is to monitor his vitals while they use "clot-busting" drugs to desolve  the little rascals.

I am off to the store to pick him up a few things, then the hospital, then work, then back to the hospital today. Hopefully he will be released tomorrow afternoon or Tuesday... I feel for him, although I did take his laptop in to him so he can watch DVDs or play Cafe World, I know he hates not being able to do anything...

More to come... I think I am more of a wreck than he is (I hate hospitals)...

Thanks for the "well wishes" guys, they are doing an ultra-sound on his leg today and also added blood pressure medication to his routine.. Hopefully he will be released tomorrow (Tuesday)..
