It started off OK actually. Hubby had his INR and is well within his set parameters.
My meds were waiting for me at the chemists, I got some more witchy socks at the market (have thrown three pairs out in as many days this week) and we got two pairs of crocs for a tenner instead of £6.99 each.
Lunch was perfect (recipe and pics will follow) and we went into Skeg to purchase a pulse reader rather than rely on the BP machine we purchased when I had my nosebleeds three years ago.
Then things started to fall apart.
Hubby has not been feeling 100% for a while, and spent most of yesterday morning at the doctor’s surgery having managed to get an appointment with one of the nursing practitioners. He went in armed with his notes of BP and pulse rate following a funny turn the previous day. He ended up having a ECG, being referred to two GPs and a paramedic, then had bloods taken, the results of which should have been available today.
Instructions were if he had another dizzy spell, speech slurred or was incoherent, not to waste any time and get him to A&E.
I am so glad I can drive!
We arrived at 5.30, and I got home at 9.
Hubby is still in hospital and has just rung me to let me know which ward he’s in.
They believe he is suffering from bradycardia which accounts for his fatigue, slow pulse, dizzy spells, erratic BP and irregular heart rate amongst other things.
The good news is that he has NOT had a heart attack.
The interesting news is that according to the hospital, his blood results were back this morning, so why did the receptionist at the surgery say they weren’t?
(We shall never know)
He sees the cardiologist tomorrow and may well be kept in for a few days.
Everything therefore went pear shaped this afternoon, and in the morning, I shall be taking Maggie to the vet on my own. The lump is still there, so the antibiotics, the last of which she had today, haven’t done anything, so she may well end up having surgery. I won’t schedule anything though as things are a bit up in the air at the moment, but we’ll see what the vet says.
