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.
