I'm glad to say that geoff is home.
He is doing very well although rather tired at the moment. He had to go back to the hospital yesterday morning for a blood test. When you are taking warfarin you have to have blood test everyday as they have to check for blood clots as these tablets can cause those. He is also on beta blockers.
Again he is doing fine.
His next blood test will be monday again at the hospital but what they have suggested is that geoff goes to our doctors surgery to have them. So, he will be going to the doctors and talking to them about this.

The doctors explained that they don't really know what caused his heartbeat to react the way it did, they have suggested that it may have been that because geoff was so ill with those viruses back in the winter, he had two viruses then, and his bad stomach problem (acid and wind!) that it has stressed his heart, and it was just a 'bleep' but told us not to worry about it. Well, as you can imagine, you can't not worry about it. But you try not to get too stressed about it.
However, he is being monitored so that makes us feel better.

He will just have to take things slowly, and rest for now.
I must admit that the doctors and nurses have been wonderful.

Anyway, will be blogging again soon, once we get back into routine.
Thankyou for your support.
