One step back again

The FH was blue lighted away to PCH again last night after having some kind of episode of losing consciousness in the front of the car as I drove along - we were just leaving the village to go to pick the YFG up from her piano lesson, but luckily were still close to home so I turned around and came home, left him in the car and called for help.  The heart rate and BP were very low again, and the paramedics wasted no time in getting him to the hospital.  He spent quite a few hours in resus again before they found him a bed on the Coronary Care Unit at about midnight.  He was confused and agitated last night, and not at all happy to be there; I have rung this morning and they say that he has been unsettled a lot in the night but has had a few lucid moments this morning - it reminds me so much of how my dad was at Christmas, when he was in ICU and seeing things, away with the fairies.  The FH wasn't as bad last night as my dad was that day, but it remains to be seen how he will recover.  The consultant will be round at about 10 and I am to ring back after that to see what plans have been formulated in conjunction with Papworth this morning.  A pacemaker was being spoken of last night, which would mean a transfer to Papworth, I think. 

The EFG was out babysitting so had to complete her job as the people were too far away to get back quickly, so she had to come home to an empty house; the YFG was with me at the hospital, and we got home at 2am so she is still asleep and I have phoned her work experience placement so that they don't expect her in at 9am.

I'll let you know how he is getting on later.

[Apologies to Sweetblondieblueeyes for copying and pasting - this is the email I sent her earlier this morning and I can't type it all out again!]
