scrubs70 Hospitalised

  1. Hi Everyone, Mrs Scrubs70 here.
    I just wanted to let you all know that Richard was hospitalised today after suffering a heart attack. He is currently stable and they are doing tests.
    They think the main cause is stress, although his blood cholesterol test was 3 times the acceptable limit. They are going to redo that test tomorrow morning first thing.
    I will try and keep you all up to date, and we would truly value your prayers.
    Thankyou

    Sorry to hear that is he in the local hospital or have they transferred him to Adelaide??? How are you coping on your own??

    He is still local at this stage. I am not on my own, a friend from our local church has moved in to look after us until he comes home.

    Since he only young I am surprised that they have not transferred him to a larger hospital - from what scrubs has been posting you are in a fairly remote area of the state there I couldn't imagine that they would have the laboratory back-up needed. You must be very worried. How did it present??? Have they confirmed the heart attack by tests yet???

    They did an ecg???? I think it is and they said he had a myo something????????
    I don't really understand any of it. He had an AFib or something 3 years ago too.
    He was taken to Port Pirie, which is our nearest big hospital.
    It is only 70km away, so it is still local.
