Hubs was 1 of 3 finalists for the Practice Management Award, which included a cash prize. So, this was pretty exciting stuff.
After the luncheon, we headed down for the lecture part of the afternoon. We were seated about half-way from the front and we were going through the program to see if Hubs won any cool awards. I counted his name 8 times besides various awards!
We decide it was a great picture opportunity, and pictures always make good blog posts.
So, here we are before the lecture. Yes, that is my new cute scarf! Thanks for noticing!
We both look healthy in that picture, right? Nothing out of the ordinary? About five minutes later this is how I looked...
In the midst of a sentence, the room spun around me and my vision narrowed. I fell on Hubs and
So, like any normal person who almost fainted, I get up and sit down on my seat only to realize that I still feel pretty funny. Hubs suggests that he carry me out of the room. As valiant as that sounded, I was not interested in drawing even more attention to myself and insist, as a clear-headed individual, that I can walk.
Well, as expected, that lasted about 10 steps and I started dropping again, so Hubs ended up carrying me to a chair outside the lecture room where he was joined by our friend, Dr. Howe, and I ended up doing this:
It was determined that I could have been hyper-ventilating. Then, I got myself so worked up over the fact that I was in the midst of hundreds of people while lying on the ground and being carried out of the room, that I began having some crazy shudders in my arm. It was like I was shivering, but I couldn't stop them and I was not cold at all. Hubs rubbed my back and arms and held my hand. He was a great comfort.
About 20 minutes later, I felt fine and was able to attend the awards ceremony.
And, Hubs DID win the Practice Management award! So, to prove that I was indeed up and moving around after the ceremony, we took another picture. Because, as you know, pictures make for better blog posts.
Congrats Hubs, for all your hard work has paid off. And, thanks Hubs, for taking such good care of me.
