Health Updates.

Hubby has just called and is waiting to see the cardiologist sometime today. He’s feeling OK, but the monitor is flashing up big time so something is definitely going on.
I had a text message at 6am with a list of things to take in should they keep him in over the weekend. Visiting time is 1 til 8, the hottest part of the day and I have no-one to leave Maggie with so will have to take her with me as I can’t leave her in the house for over three hours (it’s an hour’s drive each way). I’m praying for rain this afternoon.
Apparently the ward is noisy, so ear plugs were on the list. Typically I couldn’t find them, so I’ve bought him some. I’ve put a tenner on his phone which is almost flat, so his charger was also on the list.
Our phones only work one way……….. he can ring and text me, but I can’t reply.

Maggie is OK. The vet agrees there is no point putting her on more medication as they haven’t worked, or done very little over the three weeks.
Surgery is possible, but more involved than initially thought, so we are leaving things as they are for the moment and hoping it doesn’t get any bigger. It doesn’t seem to be bothering her, she’s eating and drinking OK, but feeling a bit sorry for herself as she doesn’t like the heat (you and me both girl).

If it’s too hot this afternoon, I shall just have to drop his things off, catch up and give him a hug and big kiss, then come home.
PLEASE bucket down this afternoon!!

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.

    Well I hope ‘hubby’ is ok Di, I know so much about him through what you write about him. Also let’s hope it cools down you Poms don’t like it above 20C do you? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I hate the heat Michael. It was 22 degrees in the bedroom last night, so I put the fan on. At last when you’re cold, you can add layers, but there’s only so far you can go taking things off when it’s hot before getting arrested!

    I hope they get to the bottom of whatโ€™s going on with your hubby quickly. snd I hope it cools off so itโ€™s safe for Maggie to stay in the car while you visit with him. Could your neighbour stay with Maggie for an hour or two?

    • One neighbour is away for a fortnight, and our other neighbour is still mourning her husband, so it would be unfair to ask. Her son is visiting and they scattered her husband’s ashes at sunrise yesterday morning, just how he wanted it. When I saw her later, she was still tearful.

    Gosh – an hour’s drive each way you poor thing!
    I do hope it cools down for you, so you and Maggie can be more comfortable. Seems a lot going on for you at the moment. At least Maggie can wait for a bit.
    Good luck with your visit and I hope your husband can manage to get some rest – always difficult in hospital!

  4. I’m so sorry. If I was nearby I would take Maggie with pleasure.
