Sorry no card

Sorry my card for next few days. My dear old Mam was rushed to hospital last night with suspected heart attack. Thankfully she is now home with several meds to take and waiting an appt with cardiologist.  Hellish night last night humming and haying do I get a flight up or what as Lynne's baby is due soon and I was torn in two. Thankfully my brother drove up from Perth to see her and report back to me that she had a stable night and was fine this morning.  They now think the chest pain was caused by very high cholesterol levels and angina so she got GTN spray and equivalent in tabs plus a Statin too.

Gawd what a night I had - never slept a wink and am utterly exhausted now.  Spoke to Mam earlier this evening and she is very shaken as my Dad went suddenly  in 2000 on his own in the house like she was on Sunday.  But she has a fab young family next door who had the sense to call  999 when she called them for help and Steve stayed with her til they got her into the ambulance.

So sorry no work from me today and perhaps tomorrow - gotta catch up with Lynne tomorrow then she has an Obs/Gynae Appt on Wed am to check her cervix is still ok for birth as she had Lletz treatment for CINIII 6 years ago and worried it may not hold til full term but all well so far getting to 38 wks.

Happy crafting my blogging buddies and will be back soon hopefully,

  2. Hope things are improving Sheila, I know it's hard when you're not close enough to put your mind at rest, hope your mum is comfortable and will be more relaxed in a day or two. I'm sure you must feel torn- I'll be thinking of you over the next couple of weeks.
