A "quick" trip to the hospital ER to address a temporary problem. We arrived before 1:00 p.m. It was very cold in the room so Lee insisted I go home and he would have them call me when the scan was complete.
So I came home. I did a little housework but did not eat lunch. We had each had a late breakfast.
At three the phone rang. Your husband is ready to come home.
I drove the mile and three tenths to the hospital, pulling up to the ER entrance. Nobody there. I parked the van and went inside. It was still cold and he was still attached to a needle and a blood pressure cuff and an oxygen monitor. He did have a couple of blankets. It didn't appear that he was quite ready.
We got home at 4:30. He still insisted he wasn't hungry but he was getting a headache (no food?) I fixed a quick lunch of mostly leftovers.
Back home. Hot outside but comfortably cool in here.
I wonder if they keep it so cool in the hospital to discourage germs.
P.S. The nurses, PA and aides were all very nice, pleasant and helpful. That really helps.
