I went into early labor on Friday. After getting the labor to cease and the baby’s vital signs to return to normal, I spent the night in the hospital under observation. My dear husband was kind enough to stay with me overnight. But, in the morning, raced home to take care of the dogs, spend some time with our daughter, take a shower, etc. On the way back to the hospital, he stopped at East Hartford’s famous Augie and Ray’s for a hotdog…. which he managed to get lodged somewhere between his mouth and his belly. So, after being discharged from labor and delivery, I was wheeled down to the Emergency Room where my husband was having a hot dog surgically removed…. (I wish I could make this stuff up!) It was an expensive day for our insurance company and a day I certainly won’t forget. So, for the first time in January, there were two Draghis in the hospital. Next time we hope one of them is a newborn….. And, dear old Bob, in the interim, CHEW!!!!!!
And, to my kind OBGYN doctor, Dr. Lazor, as well as the maternity and ER nursing staff at Hartford Hospital, THANK YOU for your concern and help. Bob (and I) can breathe again!
