Wednesday Nick decided to test my nerves. I was on a conference call at work. During the day, he and I IM each other. So when his cell number started calling my desk phone, I got a little concerned. But I couldn’t answer. Then my cell phone rang. This must be serious. I muted my desk phone and answered “I’m on a conference call…what’s up.”

Except Nick wasn’t on the other line. It was his boss. Nick had fainted at work. Tuesday he had gone home early, feeling faint and, as he put it, logy. Doctor couldn’t find anything wrong with him. But Wednesday he was back at it again.

I got a co-worker to finish up the conference call, and as soon as my laptop would shut down, I was out the door. I may have left a path of destruction in my wake as I drove down the tollway. Soccer moms everywhere were afraid.

When I got to his work, Nick was sitting up in his chair, looking dazed and confused. His boss came in with a miniature sized wheelchair. I looked at it and laughed. “Elle wouldn’t fit in that thing.” I said. So, his boss helped me walk Nick down to the car.

In the car, I called the doctor’s office. They directed us to the emergency room. So we went, and we got in quick. EKG, CAT scan, blood work…the whole nine yards. And everything by dehydration was ruled out. Nick is also hypoglycemic, so he may have had a low blood sugar episode. Plus he’d taken some herbals the day before, which may have been one of the things that made him feel bad the day before. Maybe it was residuals of that. Whatever it was, after the administration of a saline IV to rehydrate him, we were on our way.

Yesterday he was off work on doctor’s orders and felt well enough to stink up the house with a cigar. He tried to cover it up with smelly candles and some cinnamon spray, but I could tell. Since he felt well enough to partake, I didn’t feel bad for chastizing him. Yep, seems he’ll be fine.

For news about me, check over here.


  1. It was the kids. I’m going to start locking my humidor.

  2. I’m glad he’s okay, how scary! (p.s. Good luck on your run!!! I KWYM about 2 miles ….. I’m lucky if I can put out 4 or 5, and if I run 3 I feel like I’ve accomplished something GIGANTIC!!!)

  3. It was the kids with the cigars, eh?

    When I was little I tried to blame the sticky floor (from a juice spill) on my dad. My mom didn’t believe me either!

  5. That’s a scary story. I think I need not ever worry about being hypoglycemic since I eat enough sugar for a small country. HOpe he’s still doing well and stinking up…well, whatever.

  7. Glad Nick is ok.
    And yeah, the cigar is a dead giveaway that he’s feeling better. Hope it was a good stick.

  9. wait- herbs for healing or as the source of the problem? I’m glad he’s fine. I think everybody gets two free faints in a lifetime, no problems attached. But good deal that they saw him so promptly at the ER. And GOOD ON YOU with the running! Tomorrow I’ll be cheering on others in the St. Anthony’s triathlon here in St. Petersburg. Although I’m biking a lot, I j u s t c a n
    n o t r u n. Yoga, bike, pilates, but running makes me miserable. I really admire people who DO run!

    I enjoyed the interview at Raehan’s. 🙂

  13. Word for the day: syncope.

    Glad it doesn’t seem to be anything serious, and he’s stinking up the house! Scary, though.

  14. Wow, that is a little scary. I’ve never fainted. Came close one time though. Not a good feeling. Glad everything seems to be OK now.

    Heh heh, you’re a soccer mom. That just hit me 😛
