Mothers Day Miracles

Mothers Day started so well with phone calls, cards and gifts opened.  Gerard wasn't feeling his best he had indigestion which had caused some discomfort throughout the night.  We went to Church as normal where Gerard left half way through the service, insisting that I stayed.    To cut a long and quite dramatic story short Gerard had had a heart attack.  The strong pain killers that he takes for his RA had masked the severity of the pain.  He was seen immediately at A & E, diagnosed, stabilised and taken by ambulance to the airport.  An air ambulance took us both to Glasgow where he was operated on the moment we arrived.  The skill and speed of all the health professionals  saved his life and for that I will be forever grateful.  I saw so many miracles last Sunday, a day that will be forever etched in my mind.  I am thankful that all is well and that we are now back in our cottage on our Island paradise.  Our three daughters came straight up to support us both.  The customer services at Easy Jet went above and beyond their duty to ensure the girls could get there.  I will be forever grateful to friends and neighbours who continue to support us.  I am so thrilled to tell a story with so many positive outcomes, and thank God that all is well that ends well.

I will catch up with you as soon as I am able but for now I am going to take some time to rest and recuperate from our ordeal and spend some quality time with Gerard helping to build up his strength.

See you soon.

  41. I am so sorry to read this. I never would have thought that RA medicine would mask the symptoms of a heart attack. Good to know this as some I know are on it. Help was gotten quickly and made a big difference.
    So glad to hear that you are back at home and Gerard is doing better. My sister did the same thing at 49 years old and she is 60. She had indigestion during the night also, pain from what she thought was muscle aches from a cold she was getting. She went to work the next day and then hospital sick in the middle of a heart attack.

    Take care. Many Blessings, Betsy
