The first thing my husband told me to do was to check for the HVAC technician’s ID card.
This was the first time my husband left me alone since my stroke, and he wanted to make sure I didn’t let any strangers in the house.
He had to go to town for some groceries and said he would be back in an hour. Unfortunately, with the three hours window they give you at the HVAC company, the HVAC technician could already be there when he got home. He wanted to be there before the HVAC technician arrived so he could tell him what was wrong with the furnace. He wrote it on a piece of paper, but he knew how upset I got when I couldn’t answer questions. He didn’t want me crying because the HVAC technician didn’t understand me. The only problem I had was when the HVAC technician arrived, he refused to show me his ID. I told him I couldn’t allow him in the house if he didn’t have his HVAC ID card on him. He told me the uniform and service van should be enough, but my husband said I was not to let him in without his HVAC service ID being shown to me. I was so relieved when my husband arrived. He knew the HVAC technician and apologized for me not letting him in. he then told him about the stroke. I didn’t remember I knew the HVAC technician, and he didn’t know I had a stroke. He apologized for being rude, but he had forgotten his ID badge at home.
