"My husband had a pulmonary embolism"
Posted by tobyh (as ),
Last September my husband had a massive pulmonary embolism whist leaving a British Airways flight at Heathrow.
After a wonderful team of paramedics and police officers revived him, having suffered eight cardiac arrests a total of 43 minutes without breathing, we eventually made it into the wonderful ITU unit at Hillingdon Hospital.
The staff are angels.
Doctors and nurses throughout the ward did everything they could for my husband and it took 28 days of their wonderful endless and heavenly care before he was eventually transferred back home to Edinburgh.
Not only did they look after my husband but they looked after me as I was staying in London with my husband for the duration of his hospital stay.
A wonderful attitude and approach to healthcare and a miraculous recovery by my husband.
Thank you everyone at Hillingdon ITU xxxxx.
He is now back at work looking totally healthy.
