Officially nervous for my husband.

Friday, November 6, 2009 18 Post-It Notes


The love of my life is 11 years older than me. The age difference hasn't bothered us except when it comes to music. I'm more of a 90s grunge child and he's and 80's rap kinda guy. "Big Daddy" as I affectionate refer to him is the best husband a wife could ask for. Sweet, kind, romantic, and most of all forgiving. This morning he went for a "stress test". The first one he's ever had. I played my part well Smiling, saying "Everything will be alright", but in all honesty I am scared to death. What if something happens? What is something goes wrong? My husband is my hero, my rock, my strength. I can't even breathe when I think about it. So everyone please keep him in your thoughts this morning. I will update when he gets home.


***UPDATE***
He got home about 3 hours later and everything went fine. He said his knees were tired more than anything. His heart rate jumped a little in the beginning of the test, but the tech said it only proves that he needed to get in shape. Which we all could use that now lol. I told him how worried I was about the whole thing and he said "Well why didn't you tell me?" I was like DUH they call it a STRESS test for a reason and I didn't want to add any stress. So the rest of the day we spent being lazy catching up on some TV shows and movies. Thanks for all the positive thoughts and well wishes! They were really appreciated!

    Sending some good thoughts to both of you today.

    I always joke with my husband about being 8 years older than I am, but it's just enough now that he's getting into the ages where all of those scary tests are going to be part of his routine check ups.

  • Zippy said:  

    1. OMG - I LOVE the fact that you are soooo in love with him.

    2. They do these to be proactive. If God forbid anything was wrong, at least they will find it BEFORE something happens.

    3. I know how it feels - hubby was in the hospital for almost 2 weeks last month & I almost LOST IT (he's home & fine now)

  • Courtney said:  

    I'm sure everything will be fine, and if not doctors these days are so amazing they could fix -almost- anything :) Good Luck!! :)

    Don't worry~! He will be fine. I worked for a cardiologist for 9 years. We did these tests every week about 10 a day. He is in good hands.

    If they find something don't worry. Technology and the skill of doctors these days are just amazing.

    I will be thinking of you!

  • Ms. Sarah said:  

    many prayers. please keep us updated

  • Cher said:  

    Crossing my fingers! Wow, he didn't look that much older!

  • Dee said:  

    Due to a family history of heart disease the doc made me do a stress test when I ht 40. Except for the burning in my knees from all the walking everything was fine.

    Hubby just had one due to a diagnosis of Atrial Flutter on an EKG and they thought they saw a problem on the Echo. Again, except for the problems with the walking everything was fine. Problem they thought they saw was a false diagnosis based on the stress test.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is, a stress can be a proactive test meaning they do it to make sure everything's alright before problems start.

    If it makes you feel any better I work in healthcare and I went through the test years before hubby did but I was still worried and concerned about his test. It's the mothering and nurturing in us that we just can't help it.

    Also sending good thoughts to you both!

    You did the right thing by not telling your hubby that you were worrying. Being strong in his presence, meant alot!:) My husband and I both had the stress test done and it can be scary at times.

    By the way, there's a 16 year difference between my husband and I.

    You all have a blessed evening! :)

  • Amy said:  

    I am so glad it turned out well :) I had a stress test before and it was exhausting ! They are nerve wracking though.

    Also, Buzz is 10yrs older than me too!!

  • Cat@3KidsandUs said:  

    I'm so glad to hear everything turned out okay. Was there an initial reason for the stree test?

  • Stefanie @ Mommy Musings said:  

    Glad to hear everything went well. My husband is 10 years older than me and I have the same thoughts. Age really isn't an issue until you get older and I can't imagine living without him.
