I took a short esl contract for extra money. I was teaching and my cell phone went off. I just ignored it pretending it was someone elses phone. It went off a second time saw it was my mil excused myself and answered. She told me to get to the hospital because my dh had collapsed and was taken by ambulance because of a possible heart attack.
I was shocked. He's 36. I needed to calm down so I called my mom to get her to breathe before I did the forty minute drive. She has medical training and was very reassuring. (side note, she is extremely anxious and takes care if my dad who has brain cancer full time)
I got to the ER and saw dh. He seemed to be doing well, and I got kicked out (max five minutes an hour in the ERs here for visitors)
I txted my brother and this is how it went:
dh is in the cardiac ward possible heart attack
well obviously you won't tell mom she has enough to worry about
I already told her she's concerned but fine. Our aunt us with her
I wish you wouldn't upset mom. Possible heart attack is no big deal u til it's confirmed. All you fo is cause needless worry and since I'm the one living here I have to deal with it.
Thanks for being concerned I don't need a lecture when
y husbands in the cardiac ward.
I wasn't giving you a lecture
and then I didn't answer.
Dh was released with a heart monitor and will have more tests. He's resting and will hopefully be fine but he scared the bejeezus out of me.
I'm mad st my brother. But I'm too hormonal to know if I'm justified. What do you think ?
