Missing in Action



Explaining my Absence...
I was feeling tired and unwell for a few days prior to the incident, the Friday evening I felt unwell with chest pains walking prince around the fields, but I put that down to having a rib out, very similar symptoms. Saturday morning was the same only the symptoms were worse with a feeling of nausea,. So I phoned the ambulance, a first response first aider arrived, then the ambulance ladies, I was vomiting and feeling very unwell. I was taken to hospital, during treatment I arrested and was shocked several times and finally brought back, with work, more shocks, and CPR. I was then flown in a military helicopter to the mainland cardiology wing at Southampton hospital, where they preformed an angiogram, and ascertained one small area was restricted, which they rectified by inserting a stent. Although the rest of my arteries were completely clear, on performing echo sound, they found weakness to the heart muscle in several areas, which they didn't know was due to the resuscitation, or other problems. They hoped this would heal itself if due to the aforementioned, 3 days later, another echo, showed no improvement, they were non plussed as my arteries were clear with minimal damage in the area that was affected by the blockage. Virus and stress were the only other possibles. The solution could be a back up fitted pacemaker device, that just will work and click in if there's a problem, the only downside would be, I could no longer have MRI scans, which I need to monitor my on going Brain tumor problems, which after conferring with the neurosurgeon, they were keen to retain. Good News 3 days later I was sent for a MRI on the heart, and everyone was shocked to find My poor little heart was getting back to normal, which was confirmed by another echo sound a few days later. So the upshot of all this is I'm taking many pills to protect my heart and the stent they have put in, and will be monitored with MRI, 24 hr hook up, and echo some time in the near future, and I am at Home,with Mark and Prince, Thankfully and gratefully sleeping in my own bed.
Thank you for all the well wishes sent, and apologies to those dear friends we didnt inform, we didnt want to worry you untill there was some good news.
