A lot to think about

An update on the FH's health today.  He is up and down like a yo-yo and hard for me to keep track of how he is from one minute to the next, so I can't expect anyone else to have a grip of how he is doing.  This morning he had a dizzy turn, felt absolutely exhausted and could hardly muster the energy to eat one round of bread made into a cheese and lettuce sandwich for him.  I had to go out to go to pick up the EFG and go to gym, and left him watching tv, covered in a duvet and half asleep.  I've come home from gym to find that he has had a second wind, washed up and watched three or four episodes of "Prison Break" with the YFG and fully able to tell us how enthralling it is.  A rummage round the interweb this afternoon established for me that most of his symptoms are connected to his atrial flutter, so let's all cross everything that the cardioversion op on Monday sorts that out. 

One, two, three - cross everything, please - and keep it crossed now till Tuesday!

Apart from that, the EFG has finished all her AS level exams and now has three days off until Monday when she goes back to school to start the A2 work [what they used to just call A levels to the rest of us] so she thought she had three days to sleep and watch tv.  Think again!  

In the morning she has an appointment with me to finish the chapel cleaning that I started today, and then tomorrow afternoon she is going to help with the book cataloguing that I am doing at school.
She can sleep between 11.30 and 1.30pm when I have to be at home in case my delivery from Approved Foods comes whilst the FH is out at his lunch club!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments you lot have been leaving recently - you are lovely friends! And welcome to yet another follower who has recently arrived in the Fens - hope you like it here xxx

I know just how you feel with FH, my husband had a problem too with atrial flutter, they are taling about a pacemaker. He too had a bad day yesterday, a dizzy and then palpitations until well inot the night, he is up and running this morning, bright as a buttin. Fingers and toes crossed that the CV works for him.

Hope all goes well for FH, seems like there are lots of husbands with heart problems at the moment.
Him Outsides Dad and Mum( to a lesser extent) were lay preachers in the Diss Circuit for many many years, so always interested in hearing about your chapel.
