My boyfriend has to go to the emergency room.
For several weeks my boyfriend doesn’t feel good. He says it’s his allergies. But they have never been so bad. I really don’t know . We have been dating 10 months. We are seniors. I am 82 and he is 80. I always liked younger men. We have a lot in common. We both have bad backs and stomach problems. My back problem is caused by spinal stenosis. His is just old age. Certain foods disagree with him like spices and fried food. I on the other hand suffered many years with diarrhea. I gave up wearing white pants. I gave up all dairy. Now I have discovered that taking Imodium every night can control my diarrhea. After 4 years my doctor never shared this information. My doctor is a nice guy but…..
He had cancer, he has diabetes and he had pancreatitis. I have difficulty walking because of my spine. So on most days one of us doesn’t feel good. One day it’s his back. The next day it’s my painful legs.
Now a nurse online thinks my boyfriend might have pneumonia. He has to go right away to the emergency room. Ok , I say, I’ll go with you. He will pick me up in 15 minutes. Now I have to get ready in 15. Make sure my phone and iPad are charged and pack the charger. Now I need to take snacks. It’s Almost dinner time. I need snacks. I need water. Take a jacket. Oh this is too much. The phone rings. It’s the boyfriend. Listen he says don’t come with me. They will not allow you in the hospital. You’ll have to sit in the car. Maybe for hours. Thank g-d. I don’t have to go. It turned out to be a sinus infection. He is on an antibiotic. The antibiotic is upsetting his stomach. I’ll Keep you posted.
