Saturday, posts went up that I'd written for Friday. Why didn't they go up Friday?
Well, I'd been at the hospital most of the day Friday. I got a call from Mike's work saying they'd called him an ambulance because he was light headed, had chest pain and had a high pulse while laying down.
So I rode 45 minutes over to the hospital and we waited to find out what was wrong. The doctors weren't sure but his heart checked out fine.
Sunday night I was sitting in my (fabulous and super comfy) chair and a half making cards, when Mike looked over at me and said "Get me an asprin and then call an ambulance."
He was burning up hot and said he felt like his heart was beating so fast and hard it could explode and he was having trouble breathing. The ambulance took half an hour to arrive (from a hospital 20 minutes away) and pulled in as I was about to take him myself. They pulled in without lights or sirens flashing and took about 5 minutes to get into the house. They were slow and managed to knock over everything near them- and this was before they went back out to the ambulance for the stretcher.
15 minutes or so later he was in the ambulance and I was in my car. Another 3-5 minutes later we were on the road, and 15 minutes later at the hospital.
The nurse observed his difficulty breathing and the fact that when he felt light headed his pulse was rising. We stayed overnight in the hospital and they monitored his heart all night. Again his heart checked out fine and he passed a stress test.
They sent him home wiht a heart monitor and orders to see a family doctor. We went to the doctor yesterday and he returned to work today. The family doctor was the first person to listen to him say "First, I feel light headed, and then I can't breathe and then my heart goes crazy". The family doctor says the order is important and most likely means the faster heartbeat is a reaction to whatever else is going on and that it may be a panic attack disorder.
So, hopefully in a few days we will know what is going on.
In the meantime, I haven't heard back from Subway, but I did apply at the Ramada Inn today (and they are hiring!) so hopefully something will come from that as it is only 5 minutes down the road.
