MrH is in hospital, he has kidney stones causing problems again. They have been causing problems for a few days and today it got too much. He came home from work, and phoned me. Several times.
I had my phone on silent. It’s only my second day at my new job and I always have my phone on silent. In the end he phoned the office, to ask me to drive him to the hospital.
I couldn’t stay with him, for one because he wouldn’t let me and secondly because my back won’t let me. I can’t risk being unfit for work, or taking a step backwards, when I’m starting to feel a little better.
So, I went back to work.
I worked a little later to make up the time I was out of the office. MrH updated me throughout the day, and let me know that they have decided to keep him in overnight.
After work I went to get the things he had asked me to bring, crisps, chocolate, biscuits, charger, tablet and clean underwear. I arrived at the supermarket to discover I didn’t have my purse. Back home I went. Purse obtained, I went back to the supermarket and purchased the items, before heading to the hospital.
During this time MrH had been moved to a ward.
I parked up, and walked to the hospital. No mean feat. I had to keep stopping to catch my breath, but eventually I got there. I waited for the ward sister to have a moment and asked where my husband was. Turns out he wasn’t on the ward he thought. I headed next door to find the ward closed to visitors.
I swear I could have cried. I needed to sit down. A nurse did bring me a chair but she was prepared to send me all the way back to the main entrance, until I said I couldn’t. I was facing an hour wait on a plastic chair.
Another nurse saw me and I asked if she could at least take the bag to him, I had no phone signal to let him know that I was there, so I figured if he got the bag he would know. She agreed.
A few minutes later, MrH came to the door. Hooked up to an IV for fluids, but looking a bit better than when I dropped him off. He told me to go home, and after a bit of complaining, I agreed. Hugs and kisses and I left.
It broke my heart leaving him. I’m home and I miss him so much.
