Husband's Hospital Adventure
Day 1:My husband had to be taken to the hospital on Wednesday, April 15, 2009. What started out as a journey for me ended up being an adventure. The scare came in to me, oh around 9ish or so that morning. I was at work doing what I normally do. Some days it's work, others days...well it's not so busy work, but work just the same. I received a call from my neighbors who was asking if this was Barbara Bedenfield. I said yes but at the same time I'm thinking now what in the yonkers is going on. The voice on the other end said that my husband had just been taken to the hospital in an ambulance because he was having shortness of breath. Now let's back up a minute and let me give you a brief description of the kind of husband I have. My husband is 60 years old, which is 21 years older than I am. He has already had several hip replacements, a rod in his leg since he was about 12 and a few other things that has taken place over the years. He is the one who has me spoiled beyond compare. I'm not a nasty spoiled. I'm a good spoiled. He is the man who does everything around the house while I go out and work. He does the cooking, washing, ironing....yes ironing. When the children and I come home from being gone all day, there is a piping hot meal on the stove. What! No, I didn't stutter. So can you just imagine what is going on in my head when I get this phone call from my neighbors.
