Kinda Scary

I had some other plans for a post today, but after yesterday's events I just didn't feel like it. First of all, it's been 8 years since this happened, and while every day gets easier, the whole aura of that day is always gloomy. I miss her. A lot. I always will.

To add to all of those feelings, when I was driving home, Dave called me and said he fell while at the vet with Scoutie Bear and that he needed me to pick him up. I thought for sure he broke his ankle. Of course I asked, "Well, how'd you manage to fall?" I was totally expecting a basic, "I tripped and fell" kind of response. But, I didn't get that at all.

Instead he said, "Well, I didn't really "fall" but rather, I passed out."

So I did what any scared and concerned wife would do, I sped my little self to the vet and picked him up ASAP. He was as pale as a ghost and when we got home our sweet neighbor came over and took his blood pressure and Dave started eating. He was still feeling woozy after eating and went straight to bed. He's convinced that he's going to school today and I'm not so sure.

I am, as you would guess, very worried and one thing is for certain, he IS calling the doctor.

We've said our prayers that everything's a-ok!

Ugh, that IS scary. I would be sending my husband off to the ER immediately... I hate that kind of scare.

Let us know how everything turns out...

I'm sorry for the loss of your BFF. She lives on within your heart and your memories!

Also, I hope your hubby is ok. I've fainted in the past also, and it's not a good feeling.

OH Joi, praying for him and you!

Aw man, Joi, just read your older post too. When I was 16, I had a lifelong friend die suddenly in a car accident too. And during my junior year in college, my youth pastor and dear friend collapsed while playing basketball and died of an unknown heart condition. So many things happen in this world that don't make sense to us. It's comforting to me that even though we don't know why, God has a plan and good things can come from tragedy.

Will be praying for David and you too! Let us know how things go.

oh that is scary girly--hope he starts feeling better!

Joi said...

Thanks, everyone for your comments. He's feeling better but the doctor referred him to a cardiologist because his heart rate and blood pressure are too low. I'll keep you all updated. xoxo

You guys are both in my thoughts and prayers. Hope he starts feeling better!

I'm so sorry that I've been MIA and haven't commented. I hope he's feeling better and that it was just a fluke.
