Day 2

Niall is still on a trolley in A&E. He got to see the heart specialist but he can't do an awful lot until Niall has some more tests so he will be spending another night there. His cloistral is very good, along with his blood pressure but his heart rate and is still not under control and the beating of his heart is still all over the place, very erratic. They are injecting him with medicine to slow his heart and are also injecting him (in the stomach) a couple of times a day with medication to water down his blood.

Having said all that, he is in great form and isn't grumbling one bit:0)

Anybody who knows Niall will understand this.

As for myself, well, it's hard to see Niall having this problem and not allowing my thoughts to race ahead to all sorts of horrible conclusions, especially when I have already lost Sean's dad. But I am being helped and supported by God and keep one particular Scripture in my mind.

One goes along the lines of 'He who's mind is stayed on Him has perfect peace.'

People are being very kind phoning me and helping me by minding Sean and giving me lifts to the hospital. Also Niall has had a few visitors even though he is in A&E!!!

I will no doubt be visiting him again tomorrow and hope to keep you up to date with what is happening.

God continue to bless you and yours.
