"Grief leading to uncontrolled racing heartbeat"
Posted by tomrose (as ),
Back home. They kicked me out before tea time probably sick of me eating them out of the hospital. Feeling better than I have been for months. it seems I was very close to the point of no return when I was taken in. I thought it was all down to grief but my heart had gone completely out of control and I have been told that had I not been stabilised in the ambulance I would have most probably been DOA.
I cannot thank everyone who worked on me and brought me back to health so quickly. The ambulance crew and everyone at Salford Royal ( Hope ) Hospital. Especially the echo heart scan operator Zoe who went far beyond her duty and made me believe that my life was worth fighting for when I was at my lowest ebb. She then called in to see me the following morning even though she wasn't on duty. A really wonderful lady.
No wonder it has a reputation for being one of the best hospitals in the country. I will be eternally grateful to everyone who were so determined to keep me alive, when I quite honestly couldn't have cared less.
