Husband's bloods have come back as normal, and there's nothing worrying noted on the ECG - he hasn't seen the GP, he was told this on the phone. There is clearly something going on though, to cause his chest pains and breathlessness, so he's got a face to face appointment with the GP the Monday after we come back from holiday. I think he might well need a referral back to cardiology.
Yes we are going on holiday - he insists he wants to and feels up to it. As we won't be doing anything much whilst away (the weather forecast is for showers the whole week), a week of rest shouldn't tax him. Although being stuck in a static caravan with him having the TV on all the time might stretch my patience a bit - I'll have to take Betty out a lot! I've checked and there's a hospital and 3 GP surgeries near where we're going, in case of emergencies.
I've been sort of preparing stuff for the hol all week, although haven't actually packed anything until now, so as not to tempt fate. As I said before, I've cooked and frozen several meals to take with us, as I don't intend to be slaving over a hot stove whilst we're away. I expect we'll eat out a few times, even if it's just fish and chips in the car overlooking the beach (we get a small piece of fish for Betty, she loves it, although we take most of the batter off).
There's nobody staying in the caravan this week, we are the first guests since self sufficient holiday lets were allowed to reopen, and the site owners have assured me they've given it a very vigorous and safe clean. There's no-one else booked into the 2 other caravans either, so we'll have the place to ourselves, even better. And the owners said we can arrive there anytime after 10.00 am, instead of the usual 3 pm, so it's like having an extra day....normally, if you can't get into a holiday place until 3 or 4, it means most of the day is wasted.
We have a house sitter taking care of the house whilst we're away, so no need to worry (not that there's any crime round here anyway, fortunately). There's good WiFi and phone signal where we're going - makes a change, it's probably much better than we have here.
I'm glad we're going, I feel like I'm on my knees right now.
