My husband got sick 2 Saturday's ago. He was so ill but because of the weather we waited to go to the ER until Monday night. The roads were slick and dangerous, but we made it. They did bloodwork, and gave him an IV (He was severely dehydrated from the vomitting and d*). They gave him some pain meds, antibiotics, and sent him home. He wasn't much better and we took him to the Dr. on Wed. Things got so bad he couldn't move his hand to scratch his nose. He hardly complained, instead he kept apologizing for "ruining" my anniversary trip to CA/LV. I told him to quit being silly! We could go again sometime later. To make this short, he was close to dying and we didn't even know it. He had an accident when he was 18 and lost his spleen. Since that, he was told to be very careful but nobody ever told him he needed a Pnemonia shot every 5 yrs. So, if I had been in his condition, it would have been much less serious. If you know of anyone who doesn't have a spleen, has a heart condition, is over 65 , etc...(the list is longer) you should see that they get a shot. I had time to think about life without my man and it was horrible. I'm so blessed to have him and thankful he's here today. Just thought I'd share some good news, and thank God for his mercy in my life. Hug your loved ones! Life is so fragile!
