I had been having chest pains since Monday afternoon and finally gave in to nagging from my parents and husband and made a dr's appt for last night. With my history the doctor said she was taking no chances and I had to go to A&E and by ambulance!! I felt such a fraud - Laura was with me and was fantastic, bless her. Everyone was really wonderful though and I had all the tests was given aspirin at the surgery, blood thinners and a clot buster drug in the belly when I got to A&E - ouch do they sting!! I was finally allowed to come home at midnight, they wanted me to stay in but I didn't want to, so they had a conflab and I was allowed home. They were excellent at East Surrey though and the ambulance crew were fab and the paramedic even came back to give Laura some info on work experience etc. as she wants to be a paramedic. In these gloomy times, the NHS still carries on giving it's best and I want to thank everyone for all they did for me last night.
Hope you have a great day!
