not been on for a while, i've been off in London doing the London Marathon. Got home this afternoon to a missed call from my mum. Dad is in hospital, he thought he had another chest infection - which he gets quite often - so they were just going to see the GP to get antibiotics. BUT it wasn't his usual GP so a locum DR, said his heart was irregular so he's been sent to hospital for an ECG and chest xray.
We think she's being over cautious because she doesn't know my dad's history and is only going by the notes that she can read. But then on the other hand it could be his potassium levels as that can send the heart into irregular rhythm.
Still waiting to hear the test results, its another waiting game
