Heart Sick.

Well what a week it has been, Basil is in hospital with his 4th heart attack, which to my mind is a bit greedy. I have been worried about him for months and felt he hadn't really got better from his kidney trouble and from Thursday of last week he had been having angina pains. I wanted to call an ambulance Sunday but he wouldn't hear of it and on Tuesday after a spell of breathlessness which left him stranded in the middle of the Main North road, until he could breathe properly, he finally made an appointment to see the Dr.  Didn't say it was his heart so we waited  for ages in the surgery,and he was sent straight to hospital. And that's were he's been ever since, this afternoon will hopefully tell what has gone wrong and what is going to happen.  While this is all going on I have had to deal with the builders coming and going mostly going , for the repairs to the garage. I've taken the last 3 days of work because quite frankly I have been running around like a headless chicken. Of course I never sleep well when he isn't home so I am sleep deprived, not grumpy yet and hoping not to get like that as Aj doesn't cope well with Basil being ill, although Tom is very calm and organised which is funny because that is so not him usually. We are a bit shell shocked really, 4 heart attacks is so mind boggling, he himself is in good spirits, especially when he found a coffee machine at the end of the ward and he is eating well so that's a good sign. So that's it from m, have to go to the Library and see if they have any books for him he is getting lots of reading done and he'll be off work for awhile so have to find things to keep him occupied , it's like having a child ill really I need to keep him out of mischief. Love Aunt Bee.
