As janetc just slipped this in her Toronto driving to Niagara Falls post I thought it deserved a thread of its own as it might get missed. I just copied her notes out of that thread. Hope she doesn't mind. She can probably use all the virtual hugs she can get.
this trip, as this has been a week from hell. Dh landed in intensive care with a heart attack....he was returned today to our hospital after getting an angigram done, he had a another artery that was blocked 99% so they have inserted a stint......the first time he took ill with his heart, was about 6 to 7 years ago, cant really remember as i had put those horrid memories behind us. We are hoping to have him home to recover by the end of the weekend. The bugger hadnt been feeling well but wasnt telling me. I have never been so scared im still shocked, exhausted and scared.....it goes to show you how your life can change so quickly. i hope you are all having a good summer
thank you so much for your thoughts....it seem like i just got past the fear of when he got sick the first time, and you start to live your life like normal and then suddenly this happened. I could finally drive past the hospital without feeling ill, and in one week he has travelled to three hospitals, but he has had fantastic care in each and everyone of them. The first night at the hospital, they had just taken him as they always go by priority, myself and yougest dd were sitting in the waiting room and the woman beside my dd said, what is wrong with him, a big sliver....i understand her frustration, they had been waiting likely for sometime and her dh had a pain in his belly....i was shocked!!! so shocked i didnt know whether i wanted to smack her on the head with my cane or cry.....her comment still sticks in my mind and dd just looked at me with such a face i cant forget. Oh well, hopefully tomorrow he will be back home with us.....i cant bare going to bed at night, so youngest dd sleeps with me and we watch tv until we fall asleep.....sorry for my rambling....my brain just hasnt shut off yet and at some moments i feel as though its not even real.
thanks for lisitening to my rambling
