So at about 12:30 today I had an anaphylactic fit (which can be terminal if you don’t get epinephrine in time). Two years ago I had my first, and got to the hospital inside an hour– and was fine. This time we drove there inside 20 minutes and my breathing started to get restricted and I almost blacked out (due to blood pressure drop) on the way. The hospital scolded us for not calling an ambulance, and called it a “life threatening situtation.”
So what’s the WillVideoforFood angle? Well I got footage this time! Wahoooo. They eventually took the camera from my wife, bute not before I captured the car ride, the ER waiting area, and some of the ER room.
Below is my teaser clip from the hospital bed via a 56K line… the “action” footage will have to wait until tomorrow when I can edit it and upload it.
My wife’s best quotes caught on tape:
To mom on cell phone: “He’s not faking this time like he was with the bad back.”
To nurse: “He’s an obsessive video guy.”
To doctor: “He takes a lot of medicine…. He has a lisp…. He said he was going to poo on the way here.”
To administrator: “Oh my gosh it’s been recording (she didn’t know I left it on)… thank you for making me turn it off.”
