As some of you may know from previous post we have a hell of a time with my 16yrs dd being very ill (along with other things), and as a result had to cancel our hols to mexico in oct lost £800 deposit. We then extended our orlando at xmas trip to make up for it and couldn't wait! She was given the all clear to travel by her consultant yesterday . He fitted in her appointment so that we could find out ahead of having to pay the holiday balance today. We were all so excited on the way home from the hospital my youngest was even singing the small world tune!! We got back from the hospital, to a message on the phone, my mum has had a minor (still testing at the moment for conformation) heart attack- feel so bad as may have been due to the fact she (and my dad) did all the running around after my yonger girl while my eldest was in hospital for 3 weeks, although they are both youngish & seemed fit, I forget that they are still getting older. Any way they have found out she has Aschemic heart failure (not sure if that is anginia), and I am really scared, they are doning more tests today which will give more of an indication of what they will do next. I have no experience with anything like this, and do not know 1. how quickly this will get resolved. 2. how dangerous this is. My mum is instisting that we(me DH and the 2 girls) still go on hols, but I would be so scared to go that far even if things do not get worse, and if they did there is no way I would go away. I need to pay the rest of the money for the holiday today to still go and if I don't I loose the £600 deposit fly drive and the £250 villa deposit and the £480 for the tickets. If I pay the balance then do not go I could loose all in about £4000. This was our last family hols before my eldest moves away to uni!!!! Gutted and very scared and upset!!
