Tinta Si Isteri Mekanik: Ayah....

02 March 2010


One of my precious, in this world and after.

My mom called yesterday and she started with question, "Tengah driving ke?".  Made me curious enough to ask her the root cause. It seems that my dad has been vomiting since at IKEA.

He went to IKEA with my sister. While browsing and shopping, they were hungry and went to the cafe to have Fish & Chips and tea. Okay, no problem because he ate nasi before going shopping. So what's the problem?

Turns up, he drank cappuccino.  Knowing him, strong coffee is not going to sit well in his er perut. Even nescafe pun tak ok, and adding salt to his injury, he had a cup after lunch/nasi.

Really, i was scared. Totally scared because the last time he vomited like this was when he has heart problem. Angina to be exact.

What is angina, and what are the symptoms of angina?
Angina (angina pectoris - Latin for squeezing of the chest) is chest discomfort that occurs when there is a decreased blood oxygen supply to an area of the heart muscle. In most cases, the lack of blood supply is due to a narrowing of the coronary arteries as a result of arteriosclerosis.
Angina is usually felt as:
• pressure,
• heaviness,
• tightening,
• squeezing, or
• aching across the chest, particularly behind the breastbone.
This pain often radiates to the neck, jaw, arms, back, or even the teeth.
Patients may also suffer:
• indigestion,
• heartburn,
• weakness,
• sweating,
• nausea,
• cramping, and
• shortness of breath.
Angina usually occurs during exertion, severe emotional stress, or after a heavy meal. During these periods, the heart muscle demands more blood oxygen than the narrowed coronary arteries can deliver. Angina typically lasts from 1 to 15 minutes and is relieved by rest or by placing a nitroglycerin tablet under the tongue. Nitroglycerin relaxes the blood vessels and lowers blood pressure. Both rest and nitroglycerin decrease the heart muscles demand for oxygen, thus relieving angina.

Went home right on the dot, fetch hubby and straight we went to PJ. What alarms me was my mum called all my siblings about ayah's situation. Tak pernah pun gitu.

Wanted to bring him to clinic but he refused.  Rested at home was all he needed.

Ayah, cepat-cepat sihat. I can't stand to see u sick. I love you ayah.
