OK, Friday again and time to list my gratefuls at the end of a strange week..
Firstly I'm enormously grateful to the NHS....in particular the South Central Ambulance service and the staff of the Oxford Heart Centre (based at the JR hospital in Oxford).
They, literally, saved DH's life last Sunday when he had a heart attack.
He's home now with the right artery unblocked and with a stent in place to keep it that way.
You hear so many bad things about the NHS (and we've experienced them too) but in an emergency they ROCK!
Next up is the boy who came home on Tuesday to see his Dad and to help me.
It's been lovely having him for company...watching the football, working our way through the Twilight films (at his girlfriend's suggestion - think she must want him to take her to see "Breaking Dawn") and sharing housework etc.
Friends have helped too...by offering lifts, texting (even if I didn't recognise their # - sorry Jo!!), phoning to chat, emailing ...generally just keeping me connected to the world....bringing books for DH to read (he's so not used to sitting around and resting) and healthy treats.
I'm waiting for Sainsbury's to deliver as, apart from walking Max and hospital visits, I haven't left the house this week.
I've tried to craft but ended up binning my efforts....so not in the right frame of mind.
As yet, we don't know how long DH will be off work. We do know he's not allowed to drive for a week.
I'll update when I have more news.
And finally...people have said I must have panicked when DH was having the attack...
I didn't panic....'cos I didn't realise what was happening and neither did he..
Just got on and made the phone call.....
