Today did not turn out as expected. I left home just after 9am to go to the Group Leaders Meeting. It went very well and we enjoyed a delicious lunch, there was enough cake left for us to take for the groups afternoon tea.
First time we have had a full group for a while, lots of showing stuff off and people starting new projects, our new lady came too which was nice.
3.20 my phone rang, it was my daughter. She had been rung as our first point of call as DB had collapsed, so I had to pack up and race home. Leaving the ladies in the group to pack up at 4pm.
First responder and also an ambulance at the house, apparently he had passed out, when he came round he crawled to the table where our emergency phone is and called for help. His BP was through the roof, why, I have no idea, so he was taken to LRI. They left at 4pm and knowing what the A & E is like there I did not ring until 6 PM since then I have rung every quarter of an hour trying to get through, no one answering the phone, finally at 7.10 I got an answer, 'he is having tests, ring back at 8pm' crash and down went the phone..........wonderful.
I hope they decide to keep him overnight, I cannot drive into the city in the dark to collect him if they want to send him home.......frustration.
I really feel he is getting to the stage where I cannot leave him, I have to be with him all the while, which will be very restrictive for me and it also means I will have to give up the group, I cannot take him in the car and expect him to sit round for 2 1/2 hours whilst I teach a class and wonder what the heck he is up to. even of he goes for a walk I will be wondering what he is doing and if he is ok. When he had his stroke we tried to get someone to come and sit with him whilst I was out, no chance tried every organisation I was referred to said no, they did not provide that kind of service..........so I can see incarceration impending, feeling very low and not sure how I am going to cope.
I may not post for a day or two whilst I get my head round this.
