So the domestic partner is home from work until Dec 17, after nearly collapsing the other day when we were at McDonald's. And, yes, I know we should not have been at McDonald's, but the reality was, we were. After he ate, he came back from the bathroom grey, shuffling, and confused, clutching his chest. Right side, colder than the left. Refused an ambulance so I drove him to the nearest ER.
After determining he had heart arrythmia, his bp was very high and his blood sugar was just under 300, the hospital kept him overnight. He still feels weak, though we followed up with the family doc. The doc says there is no clear reason for what happened, or why he feels weak.
He has until dec 17 to make a lifestyle change. Then he will go back to work to be tempted by twinkies and goodies. He's doing okay here, but will it be after he goes back to work? I really don't want to think about this but we have to.
