Hospital Fun

This morning hubby woke up so dizzy he couldn't stand. He had juice and felt better. I spent the next 3 hours collecting food (scouting for food for the boy scouts). When I got home, hubby went to change the oil in his car and the next thing he's screaming my name. He had gotten so dizzy he couldn't get up. He took a shower, while I searched online for a cause. The only thing I could find was vertigo. I called the nurse through our insurance who told me to take him to the hospital (not that I hadn't already insisted).
So 2.5 hours here and he's finally in the main treatment area. The boys have been good but starting to get restless. I can't blame them.
If you have a moment, a quick positive thought would be appreciated.

So they say it was Vertigo. They did a CAT scan and found nothing (haha running joke in the family, scanned your brain and found nothing). By the time they tested him, he was feeling better. Had they seen him an hour sooner, not the case. So Basically, it could be the "Ear Rocks", aka Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV). He's fine and we are all home happy :0
Thank you for your positive thoughts. They really did help!


  1. Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way! Hope everything is ok and that the wait is over soon!

  2. Saying a prayer for your husband.. I hope they figure out what's causing it.

  3. I have vertigo at least once a year, no fun at all. Mine is caused by the crystals in my inner ear getting out of place. If you lean your head in a certain direction everything starts spinning and you dont know which way is up. Make you sick to your stomach. The way to tell if he has that is to have him lay back and turn his head slowly from left to right and back while you watch his eyes. If his eyes jerk left and right then he has it. It is treated with weird head exercises that are not fun but they do help rrset the crystals.

    He is in my most positive thoughts. Hugs to you both.


  4. I'm sorry you guys have to deal with this. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way - please keep us posted.

  5. That is scary. Vertigo would have been the least of my worries... I always worry about an aneurysm. I sincerely hope that it is something mild and that he is back on the mend by now.


Thank you for sharing your ramblings with me
