It has been a Monday in every way. Jack came home from the trip that Parker and I decided not to go on, VERY SICK. And he is rarely sick...I venture to guess that in the 37 years we have been married he has said he was really sick less than ten times...He is just not a complainer. If I am sick I want everyone to know it. Not him...so when he said he was so sick last night, I knew he was. I know he had a heart cath a few weeks ago, but that was more of just a precaution, not sick. This has been SICK. This was the Monday after Spring Break so our primary care doctor was not in until tomorrow...so I took a chance and called the cardiologist's nurse, since we had so recently seen them (plus I had taken her a gift basket) and told her what was going on...and she said he could come immediately. MIRACLE....and after last nights vote, those kinds of things may be a thing of the past. His main symptoms were a hard time breathing, could not eat, felt like something was on his chest, nausea, reflux (which he has never had) and just a general feeling that he was getting sicker. I will admit I was a little scared. I fully expected him to be in the hospital tonight and even packed a bag on the side....just in case..Then when he called Amanda and said he did not feel like he could take the boys to breakfast and school, I knew it was bad...I can never remember him not taking them EVER if he was in town. One look at him and you knew he felt horrible. Long story short and a LONG day, the doctor thinks he has gastritis. He said he had every symptom and it was nothing to do with his heart.
He gave him meds and set up an appointment with a GI doctor in a couple of weeks. Tonight the meds are finally kicking in and he is feeling a little better. If any of you have had this or have any knowledge about it, share it with me. The littles were here this afternoon and so concerned that POP did not feel good. Parker was so sweet. He came in the room I was in and said "Grammy, I think Pop is sick"! That's something they have never seen.
