Words I hate to hear first thing in the morning...
or anytime really..."Lisa, wake up, I need to go to the hospital." That's what I heard around 6:00 am this morning. Gess woke up because his heart was pounding. He checked his pulse at in was in the 140s, which caused the alarm and the wake up call. It's kind of funny how I can go from a dead sleep to action mode in mere seconds. Gess checked his pulse again and it was a bit lower, 129. His 02 sats were low...around 90/91% on room air (when he is usually 97%). Then he started to vomit. After that his stats came up a bit and his pulse slowed some. BP is high. He decided to go back to sleep for a bit and then reevaluate. I really hope that this was just some weird 10-minute episode and that we do not end up in the ER/hospital today.
