Heart Problems, Hospital, and a Few Blocks.

My husband is in the hospital, heart problems again.  I spent the night but came home this morning for  a couple of necessary errands and to shower, while home I also hurried and finished up my other 14 blocks. they were almost done when we found we needed to go to the hospital.   Just a quick picture with my iphone and I'm back on my way.   Don't really know how he's doing yet, hopefully we'll find out more today and hopefully it will be easily fixed.  He got a monitor put under his skin about a month ago, Thursday we sent the information for the first time, all was ok.  Thursday night lots of pain and some in and around his chest so he did another report and they said to go to the hospital.  Evidently at least a couple of times during the night his heart stopped, once for 4 seconds.  Evidently, he has an electrical problem.  I'll post more when I know more.
Update:  They really didn't find anything, the Dr. wanted to keep him another night so they could watch his low blood pressure, but he couldn't stand anymore and pretty much refused.   So, we are home and he's snoring away enjoying a nap.

Oh Candace, poor Ernie and poor you. You must be so worried about him, but at least the hospital seems to be doing their best and it doesn't sound as if it's too far away from you if you need to get there in a hurry. I do hope he starts to pull round from this bad patch soon and you both get some much needed quiet time.

Husbands @#$#@! They scare the daylights out of us when they are unwell. Thankfully the pain has gone and as Amanda said it sounds like the hospital is close by if you need it in a hurry.

Hope all is well with your DH.
I haven't finished RRCB yet either. I really should work on it and have it laying out in case I get some interest!
Love the scrappiness of your blocks!
