A game changer...

I've had to change my working pattern, indeed my work, due to my wife's health. Having to leave my job (they could not help with changing my work hours) gives its own issues which I won't dwell on at this time.
Not for the first time, Gloria blacked out last week. To shorten a dramatic story, this was the first time she was also having fits - the first while I was on the telephone to the ambulance service. She was dead for a minute or two - at least she had an out of body experience.
It's a strange feeling sitting in the back of an ambulance while the sirens are going off. Another strange experience was seeing Casualty on television yesterday and noting how overly dramatic the medical staff are in the fictional Resus area of Holby City Hospital. The staff are quite calm in reality, trying to get a reaction from their patient with phrases such as, "Hello, Gloria...do you know where you are?" Initially, there was no response.
In just over a week's time there is an appointment with a neurologist. Yes, it all sucks. I'm starting to find a way through it all.
