One Crazy Day
Thursday, February 18, 2010
DH popped his neck last night, and he must have done something to some muscles in there, because shortly after, it started to ache really badly. Then around midnight he got sick and threw up. I was worried about him, but I didn't realize at the time that his neck was bugging him too.
When I woke up, I found him shoveling outside! I ran out and helped him out with it. His neck was still hurting, and he couldn't eat anything because he was afraid it wouldn't stay down. So I made him stay home. I called my mom, who's not a nurse or anything but a CNA and works with sick people a lot, and she told me to take him to the ER. But he's SO stubborn, and wouldn't have it. So I called HIS mom, and she works with an RN, and she said to take him to the ER right away. So away we went!
It wasn't a good day for me food wise. I waited in the waiting room for three hours while they did x-rays and checked his reflexes. I ate crackers and dried fruit for lunch because I had the sense enough to bring it with me when we left.
But they couldn't find anything wrong with him, and they think his throwing up wasn't related at all, so they sent him home with a soft neck collar and told him to watch that he didn't get worse. He's feeling much better now, so I'm relieved.
It got me to thinking about another reason I want to lose weight. I never want to put him through that. I don't want to have my weight cause me to have medical problems. It's not fair to me or to him, or to any of my family. I can't wait to start cutting my calories!
