The one where Rick goes to the ER :(


Now I wish I was talking about the show ER (which by the way the last season just came out on DVD – Yes I netflixed it).

So I usually post about a fun food recipe on Monday’s but I’m with a lack of sleep and a heavy heart right now.  Rick has had teeth problems since I met him, I’ve been on him to get it fixed but being a male he figured he could just let it go.  As we all know fear and time only lead to bad things!

So 4th of July weekend Rick had a toothache so I had to do some emergency calling and the doc he saw last time was kind enough to call in a antibiotic for him.  Then last Thursday he woke up throwing up and in severe pain.  So I called the doc to get him in again, but since we don’t have insurance for him they suggested we go to a doc that let’s you do a cash pay on a sliding scale.  So he went in came out with an x-ray of his cracked wisdom tooth, more antibiotics and pain pills.   So no work Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday.  When I came home Sunday from my friends house I found Rick on the couch and asked me to take him to the ER.  So I called my dad to come stay with the boys.  And God love my parents it always come with a bit of an advice and I told you so.  They just can’t help it.

ER we went at 8pm by 12:15pm they admitted Rick.  By the AM the oral surgeon saw him and the x-ray they took to say he needed to have oral surgery.  Monday @ 3pm he will be going under.  The thing that is worrisome beside him having surgery is his throat is still so swollen and he has lock jaw so he hasn’t ate or really drank anything since Thursday.  So they are concerned about his throat and anesthesia.  They think they may have to put a tube down his nose and worried he may have to go into the ICU afterwards.  YES I’m a little freaked out right now.  So they said he may leave on Wednesday or worse case scenario Friday.  So here we are no insurance for him a huge hospital bill to come and scary surgery.  Oh yes and we’re not sure if his boss will allow him to use his vacation time.

And I thought last week was rough! Sad smile
