This is my first time to blog using my blackberry... It's the day before Easter and I am in the ER by my house waiting..
It all started this morning. My Soapy was sick last night, so I was sleeping with her in the girls' room. Then I realized my husband was going in and out of bathroom in our bedroom. I woke up and went to our bedroom to see what's going on. There I found my husband really sick, throwing up and everything. I thought he got food poisoning, so I told him to relax and lay on the bed..
JT and I were supposed to take the girls to Easter Egg Hunting, but because JT was so sick, I had to call JT's mom and ask her and her husband to take the girls for us...
By past noon, there's no sign of him getting better,but worse, and he's getting disoriented or doesn't know where he was or what he's doing. So I decided to call my friend who's a nurse. She told me to take him to the ER. So, I asked JT to get ready, but he's no way near being able to walk himself to the car. I called his stepdad to see if he could help me, he came, but JT was so disoriented, we decided to call 911, so that he could see doctors asap.
Ambulance came, EMT's took him to the hospital ER. The doctor has ordered bunch of tests and nurse has been working om him for the past three hours. So far, some tests results came back and his white blood cells counts are really high and he has urine infection. He also has fever. Because he has a severe headache and vomitting for the past 10 hours, they are trying to figure out where the infections is. They also had to put a tube in his lungs because he's been knocked out, so that they can run some tests. JT is on his way to get CAT scan and also spinal tap and he'll be in the ICU for the rest of the night. One of the nurse is sooooooooo nice and I am glad she is taking care of him.
We thought he was suffering from food poisoning, but it's far more serious than that. I know he'll be okay, but the waiting sucks... It's funny how I talked how much I love the show "ER" and how great those docs and nurses were,well, I never thought I'm going to be in "ER" for real.
This is not my first time to sit and wait for some answers. JT suffers from Seizure disorder and we've been here before. But this is completely different breed. The nurse told me that he is really sick and it was good that we brought him in.
Tomorrow is Easter and I just hope that we get to spend time together at JT's mom's house, but I am not so sure if it will be possible..
I'm here in the waiting room alone, just waiting and waiting and praying.. I'll keep you posted.
