Home, safe and sound

Hubby was discharged this afternoon with a wad of ECGs, some nitro spray and enough perforations to imitate a tea bag.
The good news is that it was NOT a heart attack, and the Xray showed his lungs are clear.
They think it could be to do with angina as he was diagnosed with Stable Angina a year or so ago, but the HHA didn’t pursue it when he damn well should have. Still, Hubby will be sent an outpatient’s appointment with the cardio department who will take it from there.
Once again the GP system has let us down.

Both of us are shattered, so I’ve packed Hubby off to bed nice and early so that he can catch up. He managed to get a few hours sleep at the hospital, but it was patchy. The staff looked after him though, sandwiches and plenty of cups of tea. One said he was one of the nicest patients they’d had. Hubby’s like that, always appreciative, co-operative and tries not to give anyone a hard time.
We stopped off on the way home to give Maggie a wee just before 6, but she’ll need a final one before I can retire, that is if she co-operates. It’s chucking it down with rain now, so as soon as there’s a break in it, she will be taken into the back garden to perform.

I’ve got about 30 things to catch up on in my reader and I just won’t be able to do it, though I will give it my best shot. Any new challenges will be carried over again, unless I can come up with some decent one liners!

If Hubby feels up to it, we may have a field trip to Skeg tomorrow to get Maggie’s new baby and there was something else, but I can’t remember what it was. I’m going to have to have post it pads and pens all over the place if my memory gets any worse. as I seem to be going through a lot of CRAFT (Can’t Remember A Flippin’ Thing) moments just now.

HE’S HOME!

Note:
Got a call from the surgery about my bone density scan. The receptionist told me that the doctor had said it was OK to tell me that it was normal. I told her I’d speak to her again in two years then.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Excellent news! Wonderful that he’s home, he didn’t have a heart attack and he’ll be followed up by specialists. I know how tired all of you must be, but also how relieved you must be. Now you can all catch up on your sleep.

    Good news! I found with my dad I had to keep on top of the docs unfortunately. So many patients and stuff just slides. 😢

    I’m glad he is home and the biggest worries are over 🙂

    • Thanks Trent. The big things have been eliminated and he has a nitro spray for the angina. I’m keeping a very close eye to make sure he doesn;t overdo things, but that’s like telling the sun not to rise sometimes!

  8. Sounds like good news all the way around!

    Good news about Hubby. Doctors, even good one, are given so little time to spend with each patient that it’s a miracle that anything gets done. Central government policy, I’m afraid. Essentially, we appear to be being set up for the expensive American companies to take over UK healthcare post Brexit… very sad.

    Great news that he is home and didn’t have a heart attack. Hoping they can find answers! Cute pics of Maggie, hope you both can get caught up on your sleep, hospitals definitely are not a great place to get sleep!
    Good news on your bone density scan too.

  14. So glad he is home and hope all gets better soon. God bless.
