Bear with me while I explain. This morning DH told me he had an appointment at 11 to see the doctor (he contacted the surgery by fax yesterday and they rang first thing this morning) because he's suddenly lost co-ordination in his left hand. He's a self-taught, but very fast and accurate typist and a couple of days ago he found himself constantly making errors with his left hand.
He came back from his appointment before 12 to say that he is being referred urgently to hospital for a CT scan after a suspected TIA. His blood pressure is high, he isn't supposed to drive and he's sitting downstairs having had a quick lunch, watching TV and waiting for the ambulance to arrive.
We've already faxed the hospital to cancel my operation tomorrow, as there's no way I can even get there, let alone be expected to be very careful and not drive afterwards. The doctor said that the best-case scenario for today is that he will be allowed home tonight, but I've packed a bag just in case and everything will now be up in the air until we know much better what the situation is.
Nevertheless I’m immensely grateful for all your good wishes and will put them away carefully until they are needed.
Bedtime update: DH is now safely in hospital. where he is being well cared-for and I am so grateful for all your kindness and concern.
