One would think that calling an ambulance when one has had an obvious stroke they would do the right thing.
My crew just told me to have a blood pressure test in TWO WEEKS time. Nothing else !!
Now common sense told me something amiss here my lad !
So phoned for a doctor and went to hospital within 4 days (which was very late too), for many tests to follow.
So when an ambulance crew says do this or do that, think it over !!
I’ll tell you one thing to watch out for when you call an ambulance: my wife was carted off in one some time ago and I was asked if I wanted to go with her. The natural instinct is to say yes without really thinking, which I did, until the wife said that they won’t of course bring you back home again, you’ll be at the mercies of public transport at an unknown time of day.
I went in the car, once I’d established whereabouts in the hospital she was.
(Even then she wasn’t actually there, they’d moved her in the interim to an isolation ward cos she had shingles - then they didn’t want to let me in to see her - cos she had shingles! - I had to point out that I’d spent the last 17,000 odd nights in the same bed and only that morning had washed and dressed her, and segregation to prevent me getting shingles was probably a bit late).
