Not exactly a calm evening at home...

Holy crap. What a night. hellbob & I had just finished dinner w/ a guest and were sitting around chatting when the phone rang.
hellbob looked at the caller id and said "Who is [wiredferret' RealName]? Now since this is someone I don't think I have *ever* talked to on the phone I figured something must be wrong.
When I answered the phone wiredferret asked if I'd been on LJ and said gunthar needed help.
I got on the computer and saw this post.
help

wendy at fringe

cant find phone

need ER

hurts

door no locked not


I opened my address book to see if I had a phone number for gunthar and I didn't, but I had an address. I told Wired that I was going to call 911.
When I got the 911 I told the operator what was happening and they transferred me to the one where he lives.
They said they would be sending both police and ambulance.
Then I waited. And hit refresh on LJ pages & email. And waited. And hit refresh.
When jmanna saw the posts she called gingerpook who rushed home.
No details yet on what happened/what's wrong.
According to jmanna he's at Fairview and Ginger is with him. He's heavily medicated for pain. They're thinking appendicitis or something similar. No confirmation yet.
You have to love the internets. fairoriana in Boston saw the post, called wiredferret in Seattle, who called people here in Minneapolis until she found someone who had his address.

If any of y'all ever need to find my contact info, it's in a flocked post, way back at the beginning of my LJ. It is back dated to July 12, 1970.

I'm still worried about gunthar, although a little less so now that I know he's at the hospital and his wife is with him, but I really have to get to sleep. I'll have the phones near the bed if anyone calls with an update.

Yeah, I put my contact info there just so that my friends could get to it if they needed to. Also so that when someone needs my address I can tell them where to find it. I never really thought of it as an emergency contact post before. And hopefully I never have to again!

THANK YOU!
Wired and I were within one or two contacts of completely striking out, until you had the actual address. Thank heavens. You know, I never checked to see if there was an address post anywhere in his journal. I didn't even think of it.

I appreciate your help more than I can say.

Re: THANK YOU!
I didn't think of checking for an address post until after the fact. Your idea of having folks give you emergency info to keep in a spreadsheet is brilliant. I may have to do a similar post when I get home tonight.
