WE’RE up at a reasonable time and I nip to the studio before breakfast.
When I go back to the house Margaret’s sitting down and has had a brief, but sore, chest pain and feeling a but light-headed. Right in the middle of her chest. As she’s telling me, it comes back so I suggest we call the doctor’s surgery – the receptionist tells us to call 999!
Ironically the pain goes and Margaret’s feeling fine when the ambulance arrives in less than half an hour. The guys is very helpful and runs ECGs, blood pressure checks and all sorts of stuff.
There’s no obvious problems or cause of the pain, but he wants her to go to the hospital for blood checks which can give more definitive results. Forth Valley hospital in Larbert is over an hour away – the Vale of Leven hospital is much closer and he arranges for us to go there.
Margaret’s feeling fine and doesn’t;t see nay point in us both hanging around the hospital, so I go and grab a sandwich from the Co-op. I’ve just finished eating it when Margaret calls to say the blood’s been taken but it might be another hour before the doctors get a chance to check them and they won’t let her go until that;s been done.
Not much point in going home, so I go down to Loch Lomond Shores and have a wander around then sit and catch up on as much work as I can on my phone.
Turns out I probably should’ve gone home as it’s after 6pm when Margaret calls to say she’s done. Worth it all to find out all’s OK tho’…and she’s feeling normal.
When we get home I get the poolish out the fridge and make the pizza dough for tomorrow (Saturday) night then set about making chicken katsu don (donburi) for dinner. We have a relaxing night and fall asleep in front of the telly!
