Emergency Room

Last night, was a long night in the Cranmer home. It was a long night for my Bro in-law and my Dad too! Thanks for the help guys!

So Kent and I are getting the house closed down for the night and Kent decides that the computer needs to be put to sleep. he does so and then exits the den int he dark. Only he totally misses the doorway and walks right into the corner of the wall. OUCH! I kinda laughed because how do you do that? We went straight up to our room and turned on the bathroom light to see blood gushing down Kent's face. He totally split his eyebrow open. We get the blood stopped and i am inspecting the damage closer when all of the sudden... Kent totally faints and drops to the ground like a sack of hammers! I tried to catch him, but didn't do a very good job and he bangs his head again on the floor, and immediately goes into a seizure. He wasn't responding, i went to grab the phone, only the phone was downstairs. I had to leave him, grab the phone and I dialed 911 while i rushed back to him. I must have screamed because I totally woke up Evan. Poor kid was scared for his daddy. By the time I got back to Kent he had stopped seizing and was stunned and then repsonded. he didn't want an ambulance (silly man) I told him he didn't get a choice, he just had a siezure and didn't know it. We thought he might be fine once the paramedics got there and took vitals and stuff... but then his vitals dropped again and he was getting faint, oh and the paramedics mentioned a possible brain bleed... So we took an ambulance ride and got checked out.

The good news.... Kent's okay! He'll be just fine. he should have gotten stiches like i suggested. but I had 2 male doctors talking to him and it was like watching the epitamy of 'dumb boys talking' guys don't need stiches seems to be fine to me! Well it sweeled over night and once it was actually clean instead of dry blood everywhere, it totally needs stiches! To late now. he'll just have to live with the scar. Really relatively trivial given what could have happened.

I don't like being scared like that! I just cannot lose that Man! I love him way to much. Your my rock Babe! I love you!

So we were at the hospital until 4 am and we have early risers... you do the math. Needless to say I am exhausted! But on the sunny side........ Quilt giveaway will begin friday!!!! Stay tuned!

Wow, that's crazy scary. When I read Emergency Room, I was totally thinking of the kids. It's so rare that husbands need things like that. I'm glad things are okay now... What an adventure!

Hi, this is my first time to your blog! I just hopped over from Calicodaisy.
I can relate to the emergency room thing! With my hubby too! Last Summer (a year ago) my DH had a cancerous spot removed from his left temple. It was quite large and the Dr. monipulated the skin... kind of like a face lift! To fill in the void. About a week later he was doing yard work! Matter of fact he was all done! And he bent over to pick up a leaf that was on the drive way. Something in the area where he had had the work done, "popped"! He said it made a wushing sound! And he started to get light headed, he made it into the house and when I saw him, the area was bludging quite a bit! I called the neighbor and he ran over and held him up while I called the ambulance! He went quite ashen! Ended up at the hospital and he had apparently broken a blood vessel (one of the small ones that had been cut during the surgery) and it had filled the area up. The sudden lose of blood made him pass out! He honestly thought "this could be it"! He is fine, but if he thinks about it, he feels like he was a bit of a whimp! Why do guys do that? Scars etc... we just want them to hang around... that's what we get when we love them so much I suppose! Congrats on the preggers! We have 4 but they are all grown now! Starting to have kids of their own!

I was reading this aloud to my daughter (we work together) and we were both on the edge of our seats waiting the outcome of this unfolding drama. So glad your hubby is okay, but WOW. I never have liked computers...I immediately blamed it on that computer!
