Today I have an appointment to see a cardiologist concerning the type of heart murmure I have. Supposedly I have type of murmure that is a growth of an 'extra valve' that causes my heart rate to reach 156 and up. My husband was with me that day when I admitted myself to the hospital because it seemed to be getting worse since having it during childhood. The physician gave me the scoop by drawing a diagram of what it looks like when my heart rapidly beats and the cause. He prescribed some pills and requested that I follow up with the hospital cardiologist and that he would be expecting to see me soon since the physician fax my info to him. Now, my husband knows all these things that are going on! I called last month to make the appointment that is today. My husband knew my appt. was today. I kept asking him about whether he would be up for going with me to this appt. See, he's an officer and is currently working the night shift of twelve hours. He works from 6pm-6am. My appt. is at 11:30am. If the shoe was on the other foot, I wouldn't be too tired due to being anxious in learning what the doc has to say about my husbands condition. But nooooooooo! He presents this argument about him working and how hard it is to be working a twelve hour shift. I told him then he doesn't belong married. Because, what if it were one of our kids with the condition? Would he be all about push the task all on me to take our child to see the doctor? Or, on his days off, he thinks it's when you sleep 'til 3:00pm or 4:00pm and do nothing for the rest of the day! He acts as though he's pulling off a major feat working as an officer and working twelve hour shifts! I told him that if I wasn't in the picture, I would hope, as a good citizen and respectful young man, he would have a job, period. We are a young couple right now with no sense of adventure or virility of life!
Tell me what you guys think about my loving and considerate hubby!!!! (sigh and rolling of the eyes!)
