Bit of a Traumatic Day

It has been a bit of a traumatic day. Well, it wasn't until lunchtime when I left work and switched on my mobile phone and discovered 5 missed calls and a text from Andy saying he'd been taken to hospital with chest pains.

He is okay. He was given a good going over, prodded, pokes and cardiogrammed, and seen by two doctors. He was told if it happens again then he is to call an ambulance and NOT drift into the walk-in centre at the hospital, even though he was seen immediately and caused people who were already waiting to tut a lot. 

I have given him a good stern talking to. I have told him he is not to do it again and he is to start a healthy living campaign immediately. We both believe it is stress-related to his work. And a little bit down to Pandora, who is unwell again, though you wouldn't know it the way she is stropping at the sofas at this very moment and NOT using the cat stropping post in the kitchen which is designed especially for the purpose of stropping. 

So thank you to all Andy's work colleagues, and our friends who have sent messages of concern and have made him realise how popular and well-liked he is. 

And rest assured I shall not be having to push him around in a bath chair. Not for a while yet anyway.

Poor Andy, and poor you. What a fright. Hopefully it was a helpful warning and once heeded all will be well. Hope you have a restful weekend. CT x

Thank you, ladies all. It makes one stop, and think, and re-evaluate, and that is what we have been doing.

Your best wishes are very welcome. Thank you!
