Renovation Project - John is rushed to hospital
This is the first time I have had to fly from Spain to the UK, I
am a little bit nervous and we end up getting there very early,, but
the airport at Alicante is great, not too big but so many shops and
cafes, the time flies by and it is time to board.
I am so excited I am going to spend a full week with my baby
I have the most amazing week with my granddaughter in the UK, we
get to see father Christmas, I get to watch her at the ballet class.
We had arranged to see the other grandchildren as well but they all
were poorly so we will have to wait till we get back for Christmas.
The week goes so quickly and already it is the night before my
flight, I have been trying to message John all day and have not had a
reply from him so I telephone (I am a scrooge and did not want to use
the mobile in the UK) he sounds very strange on the phone and starts
with “don't panic, I'm OK” why do people not realise this is the
one sentence guaranteed to send you into a blind panic?
He had been taken into hospital this afternoon by ambulance, he is
on his own in a country where he can't speak the language, I feel so
bad for him.
But he explains that Andy (our friend from Monster Moovers) had called the ambulance for him and the
emergency services had called John and spoke to him in English until
the paramedics arrived.
With in minutes he had been hooked up to all sorts of machines,
but had to ensure that he could provide his E111, thank goodness he
knew where it was and it had arrived in France before we left for
I am on edge all night worrying about him as I believe he has had
a heart attack, luckily he lets me know he has been released,
Apparently he was fully checked for bites and stings, heart
problems and a stroke, but all came back clear.
We do not know what was wrong and it is put down to a virus, he
was discharged once all his tests came back clear.
I leave at 4 in the morning for my flight, being really nice not
to wake anybody, later I get the upset text asking why I hadn't said
goodbye, sometimes you just can't win.
But we will be back soon for Christmas
