    Sending you both hugs.

    Have that cup of tea and plan what to do next. If his levels continue to rise satisfactorily they may not take him to hospital. Keep in touch with the paramedics. xxxxxx

    Is there a neighbour, relative or friend that can help? If you are collecting his car then you will need to be driven anyway.
    You could contact the services and explain that the car may need to be there a while .. some charge for overstays but I'm sure they will understand.

    Is this something the paramedics mentioned? If so it will be his blood oxygen levels.

    It is expressed as a percentage, so 64 is 64%. It needs to be nearer 98% No doubt they will be treating this, and they know what they are doing.

    Now that the paramedics are with him , have you been able to speak to him? I know when this happened to Ron when he was at work he couldn't speak to me at first but then I got a call from him and it stopped me worrying.
