Please Keep Gordon in Your Thoughts Tomorrow.
Just to let you all know
Last night at 6.00 pm Gordon was rushed into hospital where after a scan he was diagnosed with having an ambulism which had bled into his brain.
After this he stopped breathing and had to be resusitated which i watched just standing there feeling as if i was in an awefull nightmare.
Iwas then taken into a little room and was told to prepare myself for the worse and Gordon was being aneathetisded and taken to another hospital for an emergency operation but may die on the way or in surgery.
Ialso had Harry to worry about as he had been alone for seven hours so manage dto get in touch with a good friend who came and got me picked up Harry and some things of Gordons and drove me to the other hospital.
Imagie our surprise to find him awake with colour back in his cheeks and talking although slurry even the surgeon was gobsmacked.
They decided not to operate but to keep him under observation and do more scans.
They found he has another ambulism (im probably spelling that wrong sorry) which is 2 centimetres long and in a hard place to get to operate on.
He has been given three choices.
1 keyhole surgery where thew surgeon will insert things into his leg up to his brain and try to wire the blood vessel (like winding a peice of twine around a balloon to fasten it.
This will stop a stroke occuring.
2 if that isnt successful he will operate through the back of Gordons head and try to seal the blood vessel which after a 24 hour wait will stop him having a stroke but he could have one in that 24 hour period.
If this doesnt work and the surgeon accidently punctures it this will also cause a stroke.
3 Just do nothing but expect a stroke or death.
Obviously he has gone for options 1 and 2.
Gordon is in good spirits and we have said that no matter what happens tomorrow we will get through it and we will be even stronger.
His Operation is at 8.00 tomorrow morning and i will be with him before he goes in and there when he comes out.
So please please keep Gordon in your thoughts tomorrow and i will let you know the outcome tomorrow night when i get home.
The photo of Gordon was taken on Sunday at Bakewell and Monday was our 18th aniversary of being together.
Thank you for reading this.
Love and hope Rob xxx
