That's a terrible, terrible situation. I don't understand why they didn't seek care in port. I feel relatively sure that they felt it was nothing more than the norovirus. Lyn is right, people on a cruise eat and drink things they shouldn't. A pre-existing heart condition would not have been common knowledge to the medical staff unless his wife told them, which I don't know if she did. I think I would have taken him to a hospital in port, especially if he was turning colors. But if he hadn't been responding to the medication, I would have taken him to a hospital for a second opinion anyway. I am so sorry this happened and pray it won't again. My thoughts and prayers to all involved.
