Today is Sunday time to look back in the rearview mirror and talk about my week . I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted for years by Kimberly@caffeinatedreviewer . 

In my private life

This week has been so stressful!

Not only at work as we have a lot of work due to sick colleagues and me giving a hand to my teams, postponing my own work but also in my private life.

Yesterday’s night, Beware of the Husband woke me up at 1 AM as he was feeling really unwell. His heartbeat was erratic and he was sweating profusely. His blood pressure was also through the roof.

After waiting some time to see if things would get settled, we decided to call the emergency services and the ambulance came at 2 AM.

After taking his vitals, the medics decided to take him to the hospital to run some more tests.
The problem was that, with COVID, I couldn’t go to the ER with him.
I could just wait home and call after 3 hours to know what happened.

At 4 AM, Beware of the Husband was discharged and I jumped bleary eyed in my car to go get him.

We don’t know what happened, just that he went to the doctor the day after to get medicine against stress and that he should go back meet with his cardiologist sooner than planned.

More news next week I guess!

Now as having fun is also very important when you are stressed (even more so), I went to the cinema to watch a movie with a friend and her mom.
It’s a French movie this time (sorry for my English speaking followers) about a father who had abandonned his daughter as a baby and is trying to reconnect with her twenty years later!
As she is a Rumba instructor and danse professor, he’ll enroll to her class…
We have all been impressed by the actor’s performance (Franck Dubosc) because he usually is known for very “basic humor” , coming heavy with crude remarks and here, he played all in nuances what is a dramatic role! So congrats Mr Dubosc, you did great!

  1. So sorry about the traumatic hospitalisation of your husband – even now, Covid manages to make difficult situations even worse… Glad that it proved not to be too serious – though I’m a bit boggled he was released without much information as to the cause! Have a MUCH better week, Sophie.

  2. That was quite a scare for you and your husband! I hope they are able to figure out what was wrong.

    Quite a few people have been out at my workplace too due to illness. It’s been that way for awhile now and I’m sure well continue with COVID running rampant everywhere still on top of all the regular ailments.

    Both of your featured reads sound awesome. I am glad you liked them. I hope you have a great week and enjoy your reading!

  3. That’s gotta be scary! Sending best wishes for Beware of the Husband. Heart troubles run in our family so I’ve been there. hopefully he gets answers soon.

    Take care!

  4. Oh no! That is so scary, I’m sorry! I hope you get answers soon. And I’m glad you were able to get out to the movie too!

  5. So scary, Sophie – especially having to wait so long to find what happened since you couldn’t go with him. Sure hope the cardiologist figures out what’s going on.

  6. That would be so scary and not to mention frustrating because you don’t know what happened. I’m glad he’s okay and I hope his doctor can help shed some light. <3

  7. Yikes, Sophie, so sorry to hear about your husband having palpitations as it must have been truly scary for both of you. I hope the doctor is able to pinpoint what’s going on and get him on medication soon. Take care of you both, and try not to stress.

  8. Oh my goodness, Sophie, what a terrifying experience with your husband! And not being able to go with him… even worse. I hope he’s able to get some answers from his cardiologist soon! Sounds like the movie was a good distraction this week.
