Hubby has another chest infection, I thought a short trip to the shops would make him feel a bit brighter, well his driving became erratic and he nearly crashed into a parked car. I took over and we went home where he became increasingly confused - couldn't even work out how to turn the tv on. Visited our GP at lunchtime and he thought it might be the new 'wee' tablets and we were to stop taking them, off home we went and he got worse and worse. Eventually called the GP (a different one from the same surgery) and he said he thought it was his blood pressure which was dangerously high and gave us a prescription to get it down. Thankfully this morning he seems to be 90% better but my goodness I was frightened. When I think back, the GP gave me a prescription so I had to leave a seriously confused person on their own for half an hour while I went to get it filled - hmmm. Well glad I have got that off my chest. Have to reintroduce the 'wee' tablet on Monday but at a reduced dosage, I wait with baited breath.
