well, the doctor sent us home. joe’s blood test were normal. the ct scan was normal. that, however, doesn’t necessarily mean we’re out of the woods. he said this could be the beginning of appendicitis. or, it could be the beginning of nothing. if it gets worse, we’re supposed to head back.
thanks for clearing that up. really. i can now sleep well tonight. i would really just like to know, as i know joe would. by the way, the nurse who took joe’s blood was not so good at his job. he stabbed that needle all the way through joe’s vein. blech. just thinking about that makes me hurt.
i have to say, it sucked walking in there and seeing joe laying on the bed in a hospital gown with an iv needle stuck in his hand. that’s just not the way you want to see your husband (and vice versa, i’m sure)! i wished it was me laying there instead of him. this whole experience really made me wish i had some friends down here. i have friends up in chattanooga who are there for me (thanks stace!), but it really sucked knowing i didn’t have anyone locally to call and have come over and keep me company. sigh.
and now, we wait. for joe, the next 24 hours will not be a ball of fun. it will be filled with bland food and me asking if it’s still hurting.
