    How distressing for you both. Thank goodness she is out of immediate danger. I guess the next thing will be diagnosing what actually happened. None of us knows what tomorrow may bring. Thoughts are with you both.

    I hope your own medical recovery is going well, DT.
    I am okay thanks. Got my sixth (out of planned twelve) fortnightly cycle of chemo later this week so very nearly half way there with that

    Thanks Wheeze and Pete. It all happened rather too fast to be really distressing for me; and I'm sufficiently stupid that even when one of the paramedics announced "You're coming with us [to hospital]", I didn't fully realise the seriousness of the situation (my wife had only been unconscious for about 15 seconds). The danger now is that she won't resist the temptation to get too active during the next few weeks when she is supposed to be resting with her new pacemaker.

    The diagnosis is some problem with the signalling between the atrium and ventricles.

    Scary business AK - although you may not have realised it at the time. I hope your wife recovers well.
    No longer "resting"

    Hi Anthony, looking for a silver lining, its good news that this was a signalling problem and not something brought on by a heart attack. It should be well controlled by a pacemaker with no more immediate risk to health. Big scare though!

    All the BEST to Mrs Kay.

    She needs to build up really gradually.

    Blimey, that was a bit scary for you both, lucky you were there and acted. Good luck and hope she is soon back to health.

    Thanks everyone, my wife is still feeling a rather tired, and sore from the surgery, but the prognosis is good with the pacemaker. The cardiologist reckons she will be able to start hitting tennis balls (gently!) again after about 6 weeks.
