Fall_In_Love22:  That’s probably why he didn’t phone you earlier. You woulld have freaked out! He wanted to wait until he was with you so that you could see with your own eyes that he was ok.

I’d be upset too! That’s a pretty important thing to share with your partner.

Fall_In_Love22:  He probably didn’t want you to worry since he was fine. If he was being taken to the hospital I could see calling you. Especially if you were at work too he probably didn’t want you to be “stuck” at work unable to concentrate and dwelling on it.

Fall_In_Love22:  LOL, this sounds like something my own DH would do.

Some guys just don’t think it’s a big deal to save news like that for later on, when they get home.

A couple weeks ago DH and I were lying in bed late at night, talking. I brought up his upcoming birthday, and reminded him that we had been planning to go away for the weekend and do something fun. And he casually mentioned that we probably wouldn’t be able to do that, because he got the results back from his annual physical earlier in the month, and he’s going to be needing surgery to remove a blockage from his artery!


And I said, “Gee, thanks for letting me know!”

He’s going to be OK but I did have a discussion with him about keeping me in the loop on these things. He swore up and down that he had mentioned to me a couple weeks prior that surgery was a possibility. And I was like, “Um, NO. I absolutely would have remembered hearing the word ‘surgery!’ “

When we were dating, FI was in an accident and didn’t tell me until TWO DAYS later! Like you, I was a little frustrated since I thought he was considering me a low priority to notify. He just didn’t want to bother me since I was in a busy time at work. And he’s a dude, and dudes just approach these things differently. We talked about it and were fine after that.
