I'm taking a sick leave day off from work today. Gregg is still having pain and nausea, and when he finally saw his regular doctor yesterday she ordered more scans to be done to try to figure out what's going on. She also prescribed stronger pain and nausea medicines, which he shouldn't take and drive. Hence the day off I took; when I mentioned all this at work yesterday the office staff insisted I take the whole day to look after my husband. This morning the principal texted me to wish us luck and to say he hoped Gregg felt better soon. It's still amazing to me to work at a place where they will emphatically say "family comes first" and mean it. I can't tell you what a relief it is to not have to worry about covering shifts/asking coworkers to trade schedules/getting attitude for being out....which is the way the retail world works. It was especially so at my last retail job. I remember when I was out for a week because my husband was having his left lung removed and was in the cardiac ICU for 5 days, and not a single coworker called, texted, or messaged me. Not once. And when I got back to work very few people even asked how he was doing.
Boy, was I glad to leave that awful place behind when I got this job.
Anyway, enough of that. The doctor wants to have a closer look to see if there's something the ER doctor missed. Today's CT scan will be "with contrast" as opposed to without, so they should be able to get a much more detailed look at everything going on in his abdomen. ....................................................................................
That was the point where my computer made a funny noise and died. I'm finishing up this post while waiting for Gregg to have his scan. Lucky us....looks like we may have to buy a new computer on top of everything else. Argh!!
This has to be a hard day for you and Greg and I am so glad that you don’t have any work problems to worry about also. It is so good to have coworkers who care and have your back. I wish the best for you and Greg.ReplyDelete
I am so sorry for what you're both going through. Hope this doesn't become more troublesome and that Greg soon has the relief he deserves.ReplyDelete
I wish you and Greg the best.ReplyDelete
I can only second what the others have already said, Jennifer. All the best to Gregg, and to you of course.ReplyDelete
Rather than donating money to the rebuilding of Notre Dame in Paris, I would rather make a donation to the Gregg and Jennifer new computer fund. Mind you, I have just had a thought - schools have computer maintenance people - so why not ask your computer maintenance guy or gal to check out your computer? It may not be irreparable.ReplyDelete
Love to Gregg. Give him a manly hug from me.
Thank you Neil. We're probably going to use the money we got for the sale of the aquarium last week to buy a new computer.Delete
fingers and toes and arms and legs crossed for gregg!ReplyDelete
We're pretty sure it's nothing too serious; the oncologist still does yearly chest and abdomen scans and twice yearly blood work to catch any cancer recurrence early. He's still convinced it's kidney stone related. I hope they figure it out soon.ReplyDelete
This was supposed to be an answer to the first comment but my phone is acting weird. (Maybe that will need replacing next!) Thank you all for the nice comments. I'll update here later when we hear back from the doctor!Delete
Jennifer, I am so sorry for this latest development. I hope that the latest visit to the doctor can give you some definitive answers. You and Gregg are in my thoughts. Glad you work in a good place where family comes first. I do too, and it means a lot.ReplyDelete
I am hoping for the best! You (and Greg) are also in my thoughts.ReplyDelete
Damn. I was hoping that Gregg was finished with this particular episode. Hoping for all the best and please- keep us informed.ReplyDelete
I'm so glad you work in such a truly family friendly environment.
Don't know what to say other than I am so sorry to read this.ReplyDelete
I was just going to asks if I could help with a new computer but I just saw your answer to YP.
Hope Gregg will be over this soon.
