He was released from the hospital (yay!) and the dr said he could go back to work Friday. DH isn't sure why they didn't give him the one extra day and a long weekend, but whatever. He has to do another day of tests but if that one comes back clear, it means his heart is A-OK to be back to work. He didn't have a heart attack, but the drs didn't give us a real clear diagnosis other than instructions to change diet, exercise, and avoid stress. The only problem being avoiding stress when he works in a jr high He's scheduled to take an exam that will get him "highly qualified" to teach grade school so hopefully next year he will be able to move down.

It's going to be a double celebration Friday night because BIL is back safely from his deployment and they are coming to visit us.

We have often asserted and we affirm it yet again that no fact in history is better attested than the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. It must not be denied by any who are willing to pay the slightest respect to the testimony of their fellow men. That Jesus, who died upon the cross, and was buried in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea, did literally rise again from the dead. (excerpted from Dance Your Shoes Off, Second Baptist Church)

Don't be silly. It doesn't matter that he's back at home. What matters is that he can go back to work. Couldn't you tell from the OP?

A thought to his Friday return is that it will give your dh a chance to work only one day, then rest over the weekend. He'll be able to see what he needs to do to be ok to continue to work a 4 day week.

That's great he is able to return to work!

Really? He can't think of ANY reason the doctor may have for having him go back to work for ONE day, then resting for the weekend before jumping back to work full-time?

How about going back to work on Friday allows him to have his first day back, get his stuff back in order, and then take a break before back to the regular 5-days-in-a-row schedule?

From too much personal experience I say that 1 day on, 1-2 days off is a nice way to come back to work after being out sick. Because maybe you don't feel your best that first day back, but you can think to yourself "Okay, I only have to get through THIS day, then I can take a break tomorrow."

DH isn't sure why they didn't give him the one extra day and a long weekend

he knows the answer:

but if that one comes back clear, it means his heart is A-OK to be back to work.

If his heart is "A-OK to be back at work" then he goes back to work... why should he get a long weekend?

Seriously, when was the last time a doctor said "you are well enough to work, but have an extra day off anyway"
Sick leave and doctors notes are for when you aren't well enough or shouldn't be at work, not based convenience or the day of the week.

but the drs didn't give us a real clear diagnosis


I would call the doctor and/or check his chart to find out what the diagnosis is. There has to be a diagnosis, at the least, for insurance purposes. I just can't fathom having my husband as an inpatient in the hospital and not knowing exactly why or what happened.

Did they just tell him to change his diet, or did they tell him what to change in his diet? Without knowing what the problem was, how will he know what to change? Did they give him instructions on exercising? I would imagine if he was admitted to the hospital for some kind of heart issue that there might be restrictions on the type of exercise to start with.

This.

When he is discharged, they will - or SHOULD - give him discharge paperwork that CLEARLY SAYS what his diagnosis is. They should have discharge instructions and they should be CLEAR about what his diet is, or they should be making an appointment with a nutritionist to clearly spell out what his diet should consist of, if they haven't already had a nutritionist do that in the hospital.

Look at the discharge paperwork. And if they didn't give it to you, GET IT. That is invaluable and it is essential they give that to you. Discharge instructions are vital. And yes they don't disharge people without a diagnosis, they WILL have a diagnosis for him so you need to have that information.

This ^^^.

In her previous thread, she stated that she cannot discuss her husband's condition and some assumed it was his depression. She created this thread to say he didn't have a heart attack but the doctors didn't give a clear diagnosis?

it's evident that she has a history of sketchy details

of course he has a diagnosis...we all know they don't keep you in the hospital, test extensively and then just put you out with some sort of diagnosis

maybe she doesn't know what it is...or isn't sharing, but there was a diagnosis

and light of her history...this over sharing was bound to go down hill

but really...this looks like it's headed for another pile-on

it's been done.

maybe just don't engage...look away...hit the back button

Glad he's doing better. Also agree with this:


Sick leave and doctors notes are for when you aren't well enough or shouldn't be at work, not based convenience or the day of the week.


It would be unethical, irresponsible, and possibly insurance fraud for the dr. to continue to sign him out of work after he's physically able to go back to work, just so he can have a long weekend and relax.

But it would be recommended to take some time off work to avoid stress. That's not fraud.
I had some cardiac testing done and my doctor wanted me to take a few days off because it was determined my symptoms were stress induced.

Many patients are d/c'd from a hosp without a dx. It could be to rule out something, or testing requiring intensive monitoring. OR conclusive results not back yet.

Seriously? What doctor just tells someone to "change your diet"? For the purpose of a message board, I think the OP can sum it up for us, no?

Save the pile-on for when a pile-on is due.

In your case, that made sense. In his case, it was clearly a different situation, since the dr. did feel he was ready to go back to work since he cleared him. To have allowed him to stay home even though he was ready to go back, Just So he could have a nice long weekend, would have been unnecessary/fraud/unethical.
