My lovely Mum is in hospital following a heart attack.
She came to my house on Monday and said her chest hurt, in fact (as we both suffer from health anxiety and so are always worrying that something is wrong with us) what she actually said was "I'm having a heart attack today" and we both went "Yeah, yeah, what again, haha!!"
On Tuesday her chest was still hurting, but Mum being Mum she went to work (she is actually a retired florist but works 9 hours in a gift shop). She felt unwell and nearly came home but didn't want to trouble them (!!!!) so she completed her shift and then rang the surgery when she got home.
They advised her to call an ambulance!! And yet again she nearly didn't as she didn't want to trouble them.
Long story short is she is having triple bypass surgery in the morning.
We are in shock.
Even when it was concluded she had had a heart attack we didn't think for a minute it meant she would need open heart surgery.
I am terrified. I am not ready in any way to be an orphan!! I want her for many, many more years. I want to be laughing and arguing with her when *I* am an old woman....
So, if you could send good vibes and prayers from 8.00am I'd be truly grateful....
