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!!
