A Difficult Time In My Life

So first I wanted to apologize this month has been rough. First my daughter got sick, then my wife, then me. So I haven’t been able to get these out daily like I had originally planned. So this has been a mini difficult time in my life but not the most difficult time in my life.

That happened roughly seven years ago…

My wife and I were so excited because we were moving out of her parent’s house and moving into an apartment right next to the college that she was going to. It was also maybe a 10-minute drive to my work instead of a 30 minute one. We hadn’t been able to live on our own since our daughter was born because of finances so this was very exciting for us.

So we got all moved in and had dinner that night, I can still remember what it was because we wanted to live more of a simple life so we made tacos. We watched some TV and all went to bed.

The next morning was it went downhill. I woke up like I normally do and checked on my daughter. She was sleeping so I left her, I mean who doesn’t want a 4-year-old to actually sleep. My wife though was a little more difficult to wake up. At first, I thought she was just a little tired from the move, but then she was acting weird. I called the family asking what I should do because she had never been like this before. They told me don’t hesitate if you are that worried call 911.

I did just that and she was taken to the hospital.

I couldn’t go with her in the ambulance because I had my daughter who by now was awake and crying because “strangers” were taking her mommy away. So I had to calm her down and then take her myself to the hospital. As well as call my wife’s parents and let them know that she was taken to the hospital.

When I got to the hospital my wife’s parents took my daughter so I could see how my wife was doing and it wasn’t good. Doctors said she had a stroke but it was a good thing that we got her to the hospital when we did so they could help. It was when I got there that I had the scare of my life though. I was checking on my wife seeing how she was and then all of a sudden she turned blue and starting having a seizure. It was then when I did what you see in the TV shows or movie’s and I screamed for the nurse…

One Month Later…

My wife finally was released from the hospital thankfully. Although she lost sensation in her left side and her mobility was impacted severely. She had to go to therapy for it . To this day though I get anxiety attacks any time I go into or near a hospital which is not fun. My daughter even tells me she remembers that day when the firemen took mom into the ambulance.

That was my difficult time in my life… don’t forget to check out the other days of the challenge here: DAY 1, DAY 2, DAY 3, DAY 4, DAY 5, DAY 6, DAY 7

  1. That does sound like a scary and horrible day to have to experience, I am sorry she went through that but I am glad she came out of it alive and well.

  2. Looks like you are diving right into the 31 Day Blog Challenge. Keep sharing authentic content that your readers can relate to and it will not only benefit them, but you as well. Keep leveling up!

  3. What a story! So many times we take for granted the other person is “sleeping in”…we should ALWAYS nudge them and give them a morning peck and make sure to get a response. I just had a former classmate pass in his sleep of heart failure (52) and his partner thought he was sleeping in. I’m happy you acted fast and she’s on the road to recovery!

  4. What a frightening ordeal. Moving is one of the most stressful times in our lives and this is an important reminder for all.
