Almost exactly 1 week ago the week kicks off with Chris passed out in the bathroom floor in a pool of his lunch and dinner. After cleaning everything, including him, up he still couldn't leave the bathroom for 6 hours. 2 days of misery followed (for him). I jsut served up soda crackers and ginger ale.
Monday, right after lunch we learned that it wasn't food poisoning, it was the stomach flu and I got it. We saved a lot on groceries and both lost a few pounds.
By yesterday we were both much better and Chris went off to work. Everybody was happy, happy, happy. (Do you recognize my favorite TV show from this clue?)
Until Chris came home complaining of pain on his right side. We discussed it for a while then I gently poked him and I though he was going to fall in the floor. Off to the ER we went thinking he might have cracked a rib when he passed out.
Boy were we surprised to find out he has a pulmonary embolism.
Two luxury (ha, ha!) nights in the hospital for him followed by 6 months on blood thinners. It was the first time he has ever spent a night in the hospital and he hopes to avoid it in the future. Of course I like to be prepared so I had my applique blocks with me and did this one today. I'll call it the embolism flower.
Surely the stomach flu counts as 2 instances so we have had our 3 bad events for the week. Chris will be home tomorrow and we will, hopefully, get back to our normal schedule Sunday.
