Our weekend

On Saturday morning I took J to our nearest A&E department with chest pain. He'd been back to work the week before and I knew he was exhausted but it seems he just did too much. So we ended up in resus again. No changes to his ECG and no troponins (cardiac muscle proteins) - so no new damage, but he ended up in the emergency assessment unit all weekend... which was a sad as well as worrying as it was j's 16th birthday and my brother and his wife and my niece had come to visit.
J's out again now and we're facing the possibilities that he has developed angina or has simply pulled some chest muscles.
I'm really tired.

So sorry to read that. Take good care of yourselves. Try and get some rest.
Getting older is a complete pain. In so many ways. Nature's big joke.
I think it can be hard, for men in particular, to re-focus thinking. To take some emphasis off ''work''.
''LIFE'' is better ! Even without work.
Hope you all regain some equilibrium quickly after this scare.
Happy birthday to j.
