I don't no were to start!Hubby was admitted to Acute Cardiolgy unit on Thursday. His oxygen was extremely low.
They had him on oxygen and thy just couldn't get the oxygen levels up!
Got a call at 10.30am this morning to come down to hospital, doctors wanted to discuss options with me!
I've never got to a place so fast!
I left our 14 year-old son at home , told him to get shower etc cos he will probably be needed at hospital today!
Ran down to hospital hysterical, got there, got brought into the patient room and told that my hubby's heart wasn't improving, he was on the strongest medication they could give him.and they were not gona resuscitate him if eart failed!
Got my mum and my hubs sister to get our son, nurse explained situation and said me and my son could stay with hubby overnight till his heart eventually failed!
In tears! Our 14 Yr old sobbing, I can't describe the heartache I felt.
Consultant come in, said he looked at hubs heart scan, he said something was annoying him cos my hub wasn't feeling any pain etc with and was actually alert with such low oxygen!
He persisted and persisted! They found a hole in his heart! It's been there since he was born!
Just never been picked up on! Said that's the most likely cause of the liver and kidney problems, the swelling etc, ( obviously drinking hasn't helped)
He's very ill but they said it's a much better outlook than what it first was!
I'm in absolute shock,relieved, worried a whole range of emotions!
What a day!
incredible. Best wishes for your husband’s recovery!
