    My Dad had to go to A&E yesterday, he has a stent in his heart and his blood pressure was very high so his doctor sent him straight in away because he was worried about his heart. he has had a heart attack before so he has to be careful.

    I brought him in at 11.30pm and at 10pm last night, he was still sitting in the waiting area. They eventually gave him a spray for under his tongue and sent him home with strict instructions to ‘come back immediately’ if he doesn’t feel any better.

    I am so worried about him, he looks absolutely dreadful and is feeling awful but not sure what else we can do.

    My poor Dad, sitting on a hard chair for 10.5 hours definitely didn’t help him at all.

    I despair of our health system in this country 🙁

    He’s doing ok. He had an ‘episode’ like a minor heart attack but he’s doing ok. He’s home and resting and is on meds to keep his heart from going too fast. He has a spray for under his tongue if he feels bad again and if that doesn’t work – back to A&E

    He looked very ill last week but every day he is looking a little bit better.

    fingers crossed he will be back to himself soon.

    thanks for asking. x
