    He went to his doctor and currently is wearing a heart monitor. We'll know more about it in a week, and what actually happened.
    Meanwhile., i rang mum and she tells me a 'heart condition' kept her dad out of ww2........first i heard about it. So it may be genetic.
    That sounds significant - the family connection, I mean. Best wishes.

    make sure he sticks with all his appointments and does exactly what the dr tells him. Do all the testing they want and need. Dr's work on a kind of process of elimination basis, test this, eliminate this, test that eliminate that.
    I wish him well.

    So....the results arent in yet. But his doctor says he'll most likely be on beta blockers for arrhythmia. (Based on the information from last friday.

    As a mother may i just say......apart from the worry of what he has to live with for the rest of his life its also a WOOHOO! Moment cause he's now exempt from military conscription. .......(sigh of relief)

    awe Mag, both good and bad.
    but at least he is alive, and his condition can be controlled and it was caught in time.

    Re: my son had some kind of heart attack last night

    Well he's had a good think and he's coming back to the country and will work on farm. In the fresh air,. He's coughing up **** that is reminicent of a 1940's factory worker , turns out boiler making is not a healthy job. His mate might have a dairy job for him and the pay is exellent.. so maybe his epithany during this incident is the way to go. And maybe his return will improve his health enough to entice him back to football.

    Re: my son had some kind of heart attack last night

    Oh dear god....comms breakdown....
    When he said he was moving back to the country...i didnt realise he meant my place. Apparently he'll be bringing some things down this weekend. After a few seconds of confusion i discovered he and his dog will be living here .
    I love and adore my son BUT it didnt end well last time he moved back. Well it will be a race to see which one of us has the first coronary

    Re: my son had some kind of heart attack last night

    I feel for you.
    I have a daughter that phoned to ask if she got into a 'situation' could she come back ?

    After a stunned pause I had to say yes of course, hoping whatever 'situation' she meant would get resolved quickly.
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Re: my son had some kind of heart attack last night

    I'm guessing that as a Mum you're going to be doing some serious fussing over him for a while no matter what you say and after the shock he's had I'd say it was pretty natural for him to head for where he feels safest. But might it be worth very early in the process reminding him it didn't work out well last time and adults who love eachother can still drive eachother crazy when they live under the same roof? Not an easy conversation...

    Glad you know what it is and it's something that is successfully managed these days.

    Re: my son had some kind of heart attack last night

    I have a bit of a saying when it comes to my boys, if they are ever in trouble they know where my front door is. And if they stuff around with me, they know where the front door is.

    He's had a few things go wrong for him over the last few years. And this last incident is fast becoming a life changer. Dont get me wrong my boys are never on the wrong side of the law or anything but this one has beenaffected by incidences that the average person goes through usually over a ten year period.

    No Clod, i learnt my lesson last time he was here. There will be no cooking for him or moddle coddling. Just two people living under the same roof for a little while. One of which i already know wont be paying rent.AND. Ive made it quite clear im NOT a dog sitter .

    Uh oh, that does sound ominous. Is she okay?
