Finally - DH in Hospital
Wednesday, April 27, 2011
Spent about 7 hrs in the ER and got DH admitted about 10 PM. I talked to cardiologist nurse this am and she said to call and find out if nephrologist got the info and what was going on with that. Made that call and yes, they had it, but dr wasn't in and wouldn't be there till afternoon soooo would be later before they got back to us. (Wasn't any messages when I got home a few minutes ago so, they didn't call back today!) Called back to dr #1 nurse and she didn't get back to me till nearly 3! Just love the waiting.
In the meantime, he was having rather hard chest pains that lasted about 3 hours so when nurse #1 called back, I told her and she said to head to ER and dr's could figure this out there and he would be monitored!!!
I have to say they got him into triage immediately and then into an ER room but after that, it was a long waiting game. He was seen by an ER dr who didn't impress me and they kept him monitored and drew blood. I guess the only good news so far is bloodwork did not indicate a heart attack. I would have thought had he been having one, he would have been gone by now with all the dilly-dallying.
I plan to be back there quite early tomorrow in hopes of seeing the drs as they usually come in early in the am before going to their offices so it is off to bed for now and get a few hours sleep.
I am hoping that now we will get some answers and I feel better knowing he is being monitored.
