Weekend update

It's almost a pattern now. Every time I plan to leave, something happens to him. I went to visit my sis yesterday. 2 1/2 hours away and decided to spend the night. He woke up with a severe backache, so bad, he called his doctor and they had him in for blood tests.

Rather than spending 2 nights, I only spent 1 night and am back home.....and he is back to being just fine.

Logging all of this really helps me see the pattern.

I'm off next weekend, Sat & Sun, to demo art products at a show a couple of hours away, so I'll spend the night there. Shall we bet that something happens to him again next Friday? Almost certain.

The doc did not call back with labs today, so I'm sure they are fine and they will call him on Monday. The area of his pain was right at his kidneys.

But I'm feeling rested. Even a 24 hour break is great!

(((HUGS))) for you DW. I went through a similar situation with my non-compliant dh two years ago. I finally had enough of him having a ER episode everytime I needed to do something for myself. (I am going back to school to get a better education in order to be more employable in the near future.) I was taking him to the ER at least twice a week and it was wearing me down. He would have to go to the ER when I had a exam the next day. I sat him down and in no uncertain terms told him that I needed to prepare myself for MY future because he would die before me. This behavior definitely has a pattern to it. I journal and keep track of dh's episodes too.
