Yesterday I threw a minor tantrum over yet another of ubby's confusion attacks and called NHS Direct who sent out the out of hours doctor. She was not happy with his condition and was concerned that he was having mini strokes (there is a proper name, Wendells told me but age prevails and I have forgotten), anyway he was promptly admitted to hospital. Luckily for us his consultant was on duty this weekend and I don't think we have ever been more pleased to see her. After a series of tests etc. she has confirmed that his high blood pressure has caused all of these problems and that in all probability he has had at least one mini stroke. They are doing a CT scan on his brain today (yes, I am going to say it 'if they can find it') and then review his case and medications.
Thank you everyone for listening to my ramblings.
