I did finally get hold of him. I called the FRO and left messages on her office and cell phones asking for his office number. Before she called back I tracked down his main office number and called just as he was coming out of a meeting. That was around 4:00. He was able to come home right away and take me to the ER. I hate to call him at work and get other people involved in our business. I don't like to call attention to myself like that. No drama here, please.
He had been in a meeting that rolled into another that rolled into another since about 10:30 and left his phone in his office. Why would you leave your phone somewhere else like that? If you don't want it to ring during the meeting, just set it to vibrate. I had sent the first text about going to the ER at 10:20 but, obviously, he didn't look at it before going into the meeting.
What if it had been something with one of the kids?
I asked him if I should have called his office number sooner and he said I could have. His answers like that always confuse me. Of course I could have. I could
do anything I want. What I want to know is if I should
have. Would he want me to call and have someone interrupt him in his meetings? I definitely would if it were one of the kids or if it were extremely emergent for me, like I needed an ambulance (although I guess I probably wouldn't be calling anyone then
) but this wasn't that emergent.
Obviously, if he's not here, I would go to the ER by myself if I had to. However, when he's here and he's not doing anything but sitting in meetings listening to some guy tell everyone how to fill out a form properly, I think he should be able to get away and go to the ER with me. I was in such a heightened emotional state that I just could not go by myself. I could not speak to my neighbor to ask her to watch my kids. I could not speak to the people at the ER. He had to do all the talking for me.
