I just have to tell you all how proud I am of Honey and how good she was last night considering what was going on. Sorry this is a bit of a tale. My OH had food poisoning after Christmas and has been poorly on and off since but last night around midnight he looked very grey and then confessed he had been having pains in his chest during the day, but not then. I took his blood pressure (have one of those monitor things cos he's on medication for it) and it was much higher than normal. So I dithered a bit and then phoned NHS Direct for advice as I didn't want to call 999 if there was no real emergency. NHS Direct were really good and after a lot of questions put me through to arrange an emergency ambulance. During this time Honey stayed glued to her dad and licked his hand the whole time and sat so he could stroke her. I'm sure it calmed him a lot. The ambulance control had said she must be put in another room because of their equipment, so I did this. The First Responder Paramedic arrived and she only barked once then settled. He started to do some tests and an ECG and then the ambulance arrived and she barked briefly again, then nothing. The crew insisted I let her out to see them, so she said hi, then went and sat quietly on her bed and waited patiently. It took a while but the ECG was ok and he didnt have to go to hospital which was a great relief. Apparently he has a nasty virus thing. Afterwards the original Paramedic spent a little while playing with her and was very impressed that she was so well behaved, especially when I told him we don't have many visitors. She's having a quiet day today cos I'm sure she needs the rest after all the excitement.
