"He just lost his job and is stressing lately."

Stress can cause very symptoms, even wreaking havoc on the entire body (trust me, I know).

"I love him dearly and just want to do the right thing for him."

Should have just called 911, though treatment/transport could of still be refused upon arrival.

Other sensible option, talk to him about it.

Best of luck to your husband and you down the road of life.

Take care,
