DH hasn't been feeling well since about last Thursday. Some pain in his lower back on one side, then both back and stomach. All aches, slight fever, chills, and some other symptoms the past couple of days. We thought maybe kidney stone? He agreed to go to ER earlier today. We just went to the small hospital in town. I had called first to make sure they could test there for that or did we need to go to the city hospital. The nurse said bring him in, they can test.
But, they wouldn't let me inside, due to their Covid precautions implemented again. I went and waited in the car for an hour and a half and then the nurse called me and said he was going to have a CT Scan and it would be another 2-3 hours, so just go home and wait. About 2 hours later the doctor called me and said he has pancreatitis! Well, not good, of course, but at least we have an actual diagnosis. I swear every time he has ever gone to the dr. they never know what is wrong with him. Doc said they are admitting him and pumping him with iv fluids and pain meds for at least 2 days. Some people take longer to heal, to get the inflammation down.
And I can't even go see him while he's there. At least they have wi-fi and he can text, so he's keeping busy so far. Said the pain meds aren't really helping much, but sounds like pretty strong stuff he's getting. Ugh. I just got back from taking him his phone charger. The lady I dropped it off with used to work where my mom lives. Small world.
Hopefully he gets better fast and no complications.
