Hello ladies. I hear you all groaning "It's him again".
I am afraid that I am not the bearer of good news. I am sorry to tell you that Fiona is back in hospital again. On Friday morning when we awoke she said she didn't feel well and I decided to phone for a doctor only to find that the surgery was closed for the Easter Weekend. We didn't think it warranted phoning the emergency services so decided that it would be best to wait to see how things went. She wanted to get up to go to the toilet and she collapsed as soon as she got out of bed. She turned purple and was struggling for breath so I phoned for an ambulance immediately. It was the longest 20 minutes of my life waiting for them as I struggled to clear her airways and keep her at least semi conscious. Anyway she was rushed into hospital (Blue lights and sirens blazing) in Dunfermline (it's closer than Perth) and after over 4 hours in the resuscitation room, xrays, blood tests and a CT Scan they found out that she had had a blood clot in her leg which had broken up and moved resulting in several small clots in both lungs. She had complained on Thursday of a very sore and swollen lower right leg but we thought that it was fluid retention - how wrong can you be. She is now in the High Dependency Unit and getting anti-clotting drugs to resolve the clots. She does look a lot better but is still very weak. The consultant reckons she will be in hospital for a week to 10 days so I'm afraid that she will be missing from Blogland for a bit longer.
I never expected to be back on her blog so soon but I know a lot of you are interested in how she is progressing.
I hope you all have a good Easter Weekend.
