"Doctor her eyes...."

Posted on 2007.11.26 at 12:13
So, Saturday morning, my wife woke up to a vision loss in one eye: approximately the bottom third of her vision in that eye was gone. She called her eye doctors, who called her in for an emergency exam, where they saw a slight puffiness to that retina, but nothing they thought was likely to cause the vision problems. They told her they would call to consult her Primary Care Physician today.

At about noon, she got a call from her PCP, instructig her to report to our local hospital for an emergency CAT scan. (This was a matter of some concern, as my wife is large, as am I, and might not fit. But the machine at Deaconess Nashoba Hospital, in Ayer, MA, is cleared for up to 400 pounds, so she's ok for that.)

I asked her if she wanted me to leave work and meet her there, and she said no, but she would call me if she wanted or needed me. Of course, as soon as she calls, I will go.

So that's the story at the moment.

Not to second-guess your wife or your relationship dynamic, but it is good form to show up for something like this regardless of what she says.

And *hugs* to you both! Scary stuff, even if it turns out to be minor.

I agree with you, and am mulling over just dropping everything and going. But I did offer repeatedly, and she did say "No," and she does have issues about me and my job. (No, no-one will give me shit if I leave for this. Yes, she thinks they will.) So I have to balance whether my being there will be comfort enough to outweigh her irritation at my "blowing off work."

Hey, man! What's the deal? How is she?

And tell her taking off work to be with your spouse during a serious medical test is NOT blowing off work. In fact, it makes YOU look bad to your employer if you don't go.

Yeah, that'll get her.

Here's to hoping things aren't bad, that it's just one of those days when the body decides a certain part won't work and she needs a ctrl-alt-del reset.
