Didn’t think...

 We would manage to get away to see family. DB’s heart and digestion has been messing about. Got him to take his GTN spray and he passed out! Luckily he was sitting down and I monitored him until he came around.

Made him a warm drink, gave him some honey to raise his blood pressure and left him to sleep. After an hour or so he felt better. Got to have another ECG and a full set of bloods when we return. Family live close to a hospital and he has everything he needs here so am not too concerned. We last went through this 2014 so don’t expect much to have changed.

Although my nurse training kicked in I was close to dialling 999.

    1. So far so good. DGD sat on my knee after a few minutes so that was good.

  3. Gosh that was scary, thank goodness you are well trained and know what to do. It must have been serious for you to consider 999. Hope he's doing okay today. xx

    1. So far so good. Whatever it is, it is very intermittent and not brought on by exercise.

  4. I'm glad you were there for him, and you are in a place with a hospital nearby. What a scary experience.

    1. We are. Couldn’t comment re your hallway so here it is:
      I like the size of your hall, it really is a room isn’t? Ours is about 8’ x 6’ with 5 doors in it so a bit small with no redeeming features. Yet again, gorgeous!

    2. Thanks Dc. Have made it no comment so I don't have to check it. There are a few bungalows on the road that haven't had the loft converted which show the true size of the hallway... I love a nosey on Rightmove!
