Well the doctor gave him a zpak. And wants to do blood work in the
morning at 8am. It was to late this evening for their office to do it.

And I think he could tell with the fact that we live even further from the
office, than town that it wasn't a good idea to send him to town for the
blood work.

He also didn't like the idea, that he is falling from the dizziness. Or something which I didn't find out till we were on our way. If I had known
that we would have gone to ER last night. He told me to watch him tonight,
and to take him to ER if he gets worse, or anymore falling.

My husband isn't going to admit if he is falling now. But he swears his
fever broke after I brought him home and went to get his meds. But I'm
not sure if it wasn't more the tylenol than a break in fever. We will see.

Ugh, I think its going to be a long night.

He is checking electrolytes for one thing tomorrow. And checked tonight
for mengitis but said, he didn't see signs of it. No stiff neck or swollen
neck. So we will see.

And tomorrow I have to take Derrick to Indy, I would cancel but I had
already told him I was taking Derrick. He would hear of me cancelling.
Was already trying to tell me he would drive self. Probably why supposedlly
his fever has broken. But I can take him for blood draw and bring him
home then leave. We have time.


I also found someone to take him, if he gets word he needs to go to hospital.

Donna,

I am glad that your husband's doctor is following up.
The blood work tomorrow will provide information.

By the morning you will have some information --- you will know if he has gotten worse, better, or stayed the same.

Good luck with him and the rest of your family.
Keep yourself strong.

Well we have been for the blood draw. He still thought he could drive.

I am not sure, but didn't chance it. I took him. Saw him walking the
walkway, and he was weaving. He said, the nurse thought he was
dizzy and off because of the blood draw. So he had to tell her it was
because of the illness.

I had already knew I was right. But that really showed. He really
was trying to talk me into it yesterday, because he knew Derrick
and I have to go to Indy.

We will still be okay. I was more worried about leaving him for the
day. Still am some, but have it worked out for someone if he needs
to go to the hospital. Not that I think he would go or call.

He says he slept last night, and I'm pretty sure he did. But not as
soundly I don't think as he thinks. but that is okay, he can rest
while we are gone.

I did for about 4 hours, which is good for me.

I hope your husband's condition improves and that the bloodwork may have some answers. May you stay healthy!

Well I returned with Derrick from Indy. And we had a great afternoon, He hopefully will be getting a IPAD mini, and and lots of good apps that will
help him.

Some that will read bar codes, and will copy text to the IPAD and read it to him. And other good things. I honestly at this point can't remember it all.

I had a semi try to come across into my lane while I was trying to get onto 465W off of 31. And all traffic had been sitting still, and just got lights or
whatever to go. And he decided he wanted to be in my lane at that
minute. And started pulling over into me, and I had to figure out what to
do, luckily I had barely started to move, and could start to move to the
right as he kept coming as I laid on my horn.

And all the cars behind me tried to figure out what to do also.

Luckily he didn't hit me, or get me off the road completely. All the sudden
he decided to get back on the road and go to the other 465 exit and get
off, I think he knew if he went with us he was going to get turned in
for sure.

He did anyway, by me.

Not that I think it did any good but to my thoughts. It sure scared Derrick
too. He wanted to know where he thought he was going.
