In the hospital

Last Saturday, hubby gave me a heart attack. He was hospitalized for a night and the story was like that....

As usual, at around 7.50am we reached the office. Hubby was fine and worked as normal. 10 minutes later, he came to me and asked me to bring him to the hospital immediately. He was having a very bad stomachache and was groaning in pain. The pain came suddenly without any warnings. I quickly rushed him to the hospital and YX was frighten by the looked of hubby. He did not even speak a word along the way but was later ok while we were in the hospital.

Driving to the hospital took us like forever. Hubby was still groaning in pain and tears actually rolled down his cheeks. The pain was unbearable and all he could do was to hold to his tummy and groan. I drove as fast as I could and once I reached the hospital, I literally 'jumped' down from the car and informed the nurse on duty. They pushed out a wheelchair and wheeled hubby in. After a few minutes, a doctor came and started to press hubby's tummy. The pain was intense and hubby's both hands turned cold. He barely could open his mouth to speak and was lying lifelessly. The doctor then decided to gave him an injections to stop the pain.

Doctor suggested to have an ultrasound done to see if there are any growth. The results turned out negative. Doctor then suggested to have an X-ray taken to check his kidney. Again, nothing. Finally, the doctor suggested to do a scope to see his intestines and stomach. In order to do the scopes, hubby needs to clear his bowel. Doctor admitted him into the wad and gave him some medications for cleaning the bowel.

Soon, the doctor was ready to perform the scopes. That process was scary enough but I took the courage to participate as I wanted to know and see what was wrong with him. Luckily YX was cooperative enough and did not refuse to enter the room where the scope was being carried out. Lo and behold, the doctor finally found the answer to hubby's pain. His stomach was very badly infested. There were a few swollen red lines on his stomach and that was the reasons he was in a great pain. Luckily no growth or anything like that, so operations was not required.

Hubby was warded for a night and he was given medications and was on drips. Until today, the doctor was puzzled with the reasons on the infections. The doctor had thought it was the xxx bacteria (can't remember the scientific name) but the test on the samples he took during the scope turned out to be negative. However, the doctor advised hubby to avoid sour & spicy stuffs.

After just a night in the wad, hubby can't wait to go home. As no pain re-occurred, hubby was declare fit to go home the next day. He was still under medications and occasionally, his stomach still felt uncomfortable. He felt lots of winds and could feel something 'floating' inside his tummy.
