Thoughts of a middle aged man…..23 September 2013

That was one heck of a day. It started when I went downstairs this morning, Brian was just about to leave and he looked up at me and he looked dreadful so I told him to stay home. He said he felt breathless and had a bad night, his back was sore and he just looked terrible. We assumed his asthma was playing up so he changed from his work clothes and contacted his boss to say he was ill.

I got ready for work and as he seemed no better but no worse I went to work. Barely five minutes later he called me as he could hardly breathe and told me he had called an ambulance so I turned around and came back home, arriving as the ambulance car did. Fifteen minutes later the ambulance arrived and Brian was on his way to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Ay this stage they were starting to think he may have had a heart attack rather than it being asthma, so they sent him for x-rays which showed his chest was clear, and started to treat him like a heart attack patient. The ECG and the blood tests all came back negative so he is home resting and we are none the wiser about the problem, although he has another blood test tomorrow and a stress test on Thursday.

During all this they took quite a bit of blood from him, although they had a lot of trouble finding suitable veins, they kept sticking the needle in but nothing flowed. In the end I said just stab him, he will bleed eventually, Brian did not see the funny side to this but the doctor and I thought it was mildly amusing.

After I got him settled at home I went to work about 3.00pm as I had a 5.00pm Inaugural General Meeting with a new corporation, and wouldn’t you know, not one of the buggers turned up, I was pretty crapped off.

The good news is that Brian has tomorrow off to build his strength and he is feeling much better tonight, thank you Universe, I don’t know what I would do if anything ever happened to him. Who am I kidding, I would do exactly what he would do if the shoe was on the other foot, spend the insurance and have a ball 🙂
