She got him a towel, put it over his face, and was very kind, but was not getting that he was in distress. He said, "I thought I was going to die with this towel on my face. She was so helpful, but she didn't get it. I wanted to say help me. I'm going to die." But he couldn't move his jaw. His father came in after a while and they realized it was a real problem, and took him to the hospital (they literally had to carry him because he couldn't move).
What is interesting about this story, is that in 17 years of knowing my husband (12 of them married), he has never once mentioned this story. When he finished, I said, "You know, if you'd fallen ill yesterday and the doctors asked me, 'is he allergic to any medications?' I would have said, 'no.'"
It was so weird that I'd never heard this story. But, I guess it goes to show, even when you know someone, you can miss crucial bits of info.
That's it for today.
