Thoughts From A Hospital Room (8-3-18)

I slept well last night. I guess after having sat in the ER for so long, without food, I was pretty well tired by the time they put Shilo in a hospital room at around 1:30. Keeping in mind that I need to take care of myself, I made a point to eat lunch before I left him alone so I could go take a nap. I visited last night as well, and spent an hour just talking to him.

I woke up about 7 this morning, and was at the hospital by 8. I stopped at the cafeteria to get breakfast, and just as I was finishing up, the ER doctor from yesterday and the echocardiogram technician showed up. Currently, I'm watching that echocardiogram being done. It's rather fascinating; not only is he taking pictures of the heart but also it shows the beat of the heart like an EKG would. Shilo needs to be cleared by the Cardiologist before he can be sent home.

Honestly, I'm just glad that he's feeling better.  I'm really hoping there's nothing wrong and that he can come home.  The echocardiogram technician said that his heart looks good, that the cardiologist has to decide if he's good enough to go home. More information as I get it.

Late August 2, 2018 Post

Shilo came home from work at about 7:30 this morning,  and looked pale, like death warmed over, and he climbed into bed, and told me he wasn't feeling well.

When I asked him what was wring, he said "Chest pain, and it's hard to breathe." I immediately got up, dressed myself and assisted him in getting dressed and drove him to the closest hospital. After several hours of assessments, they decided because of his age (almost 62) and other health issues, that they were going to keep him overnight for observation, but by the time he was admitted, it was past 1PM.

I've had a particularly long day as well, so I'm keeping this short.  He's feeling better than he was, and he's on a heart monitor. I will add an update tomorrow once I know something.
