tired from this crazy day

What started out as a mellow day turned into a crazy, stressful one. J woke up this morning with arrhythmia. The last time he had it was 4 or 5 years ago. After waiting a good portion of the morning to see if it righted itself, and finding it did not, we called the doctor’s office. They sent us to the emergency room, where J was monitored for about 4 hours. The meds slowed his heart rate just enough, and so he was sent home with strict instructions to take his meds and come back on Saturday, Sunday, AND Monday. Oh, and he needs to see cardiology sometime in the next 7 days.

Needless to say, I’ve been a wee bit stressed today. It’s happened before, and we’ve gotten through it. And we were certain we would today, too. But it doesn’t stop a cold, hard dread from gripping my heart. Nor does it stop my worrywartedness (that IS SO a word).

J is my rock, my other half, the person that fills my days and nights with such love, stability, comfort, and joy that I would be lost without them. I love him more than I can put into words and it scares the bejeebus out of me to contemplate an existence otherwise.

Honey, the baby & I are glad you’re home.
