Yesterday my wife fainted (? ) and failed to recover for at least ten minutes. Thinking she might have had a stroke (she is aged 83 ) I phoned 999. From that point on, I. e speaking to the operator, prompt arrival of ambulance etc I felt she was in excellent hands. The 3 ambulance crew had quite a job putting her on the trolley and we're obviously treating her in the ambulance as Pat told me she was now speaking, although it later appeared that she was not really "with it" until after she got to the hospital. She was quickly wheeled into a cubicle as they had radioed ahead and after a series of tests and a visit from a doctor she had every careful and kind attention that one could possibly hope for. It turned out to be a case of dehydration and she was released into the wild world again after treatment, about 3 hours later.
