Got a call at work on Saturday to say my partner has a possible fractured jaw, and can I pick him up from the hospital he was at and drive him to the major hospital. I'm thinking yeah great silly boy(he's a goalkeeper for soccer and got kicked in the face), he seemed ok when I picked him up, took him into emergency and his face started to swell. Xrays showed 3 fractures and 2 broken teeth. They said he needs surgery asap to mobilise the fragments because his whole chin was loose.
Well we spent Saturday night in hospital waiting, then all day sunday, sunday night and then today. All the while being told 'soon' for surgery. He had to fast for surgery, so hasn't eaten in over 48 hours.
He finally went in today at about 1pm, it is now 5.45pm and I have called hospital twice (went home because I can't do anything while he's in surgery) and they tell me there have been surgery complications and it's taking longer than expected. I lost a friend a few years back from surgery complications. I am absolutely terrified for him, he is my everything this man, absolutely everything, I can't stand this waiting game. Will go back into hospital soon, hassle the nurses about what's going on. I am a mega stress head, and this has tipped me over the edge I've been a total wreck waiting around. I NEVER EVER cry, not ever, I'm a tough nut, stress head, but tough nut and get it done. But I absolutely howled last night, no body other than my parents have seen me cry, don't think my boy knew what to do. I felt terrible, he's sick as in hospital and there's me making him feel worse for upsetting me! He reacted to the pain meds so couldn't have a big enough dose to even take the edge off the pain :(
