Blog, Interrupted....

Real life getting in the way here at EH Towers at the moment. My lovely Dad was taken into hospital last Wednesday having suffered a small heart attack. They have now discovered that he's a lucky chap that it wasn't one heck of a lot worse - in some ways that was more of a shock to Mum and myself than the original heart attack was. Thankfully quick-thinking as ever Mum responded faster than a very fast thing by calling 999 immediately, the solo Paramedic was with them in 5 minutes, ambulance followed inside 10, and he's suffered no permanent damage - almost certainly in part thanks to those quick reactions.

He's stuck in hospital now until they can do a bypass operation. As he keeps telling us, he's bored. 30-odd years of sweet revenge was gained when he texted his boredom to me the other day, and I responded with "Well for GOODNESS sake go and find something to DO then!". I knew if I waited long enough I could get my own back for repeatedly being told that as a child...

Get well soon Dad, and thank you for your quick reactions Mum. Love you both.
