Grand Duke Henri Admitted to Hospital, Receives Angioplasty; February 3, 2011
 
He has been hospitalized today on the 3rd of February. No details yet but they say it is not serious.:ohmy:

According to Tageblatt and few other Lux newspapers the Grand Duke was feeling sick after getting up this morning, the court physican noticed circulation problems. Henri was then rushed to the cardiology section of the Centre hospitalier de Luxembourg. As rominet stated it's nothing too serious, he is stable and in a satisfying condition. He was released from hospital some time before midday and is now back home.

Thank you Saschana !

I'm so glad he was released! I was very worried when I read the thread title. I hope it wasn't anything serious.

Yes it seems that is wasn't something serious. Perhaps even the hospital admittance was not necessary but it is good to be cautious and not taking risks with your health (especially when there is a history of cardial problems in his mother's family )

Saschana 02-03-2011 03:10 PM

Well... Forget what I said earlier about the Grand Duke leaving the hospital. Indeed they were press reports but the are apparently wrong. Henri is still in hospital, he had an Angioplasty but hopes to be able to get back home soon. There was an official statement by the Court and all serious Lux newspapers report it and say that he is stable.
Privat (yellow press) cites the protocols of the emergeny service and the one who called the ambulance said that the needed a doctor because of a cardiac arrest :eek: So don't know if Henri actually had one but at least the one calling for the ambulance thought so.

Soon back home after an emergency angioplasty? This sounds contradictory to me.
However, I hope he will recover.

Saschana 02-03-2011 03:50 PM

That's what they are saying but I think that the court is downplaying the incident.

jonc93 02-03-2011 04:13 PM

Oh no, I hope everything is alright, this is kind of scary. :/ Might sound morbid but I hope Guillaume doesn't become Grand Duke soon, but heart disease is the number one cause of death. The Grand Duke needs to focus on his health, weird though he always seemed healthy and fit, but as they say looks are deceiving...

snowflower 02-03-2011 04:39 PM

He sure will focus on his health and do his best to recover . I also hope that this is not anything too severe and possible fatal, for the sake of his family - his children are still so young ( ok all are adults but not really old and Alexandra and Sebastien are still in their teens ) But let's be positive , he seems fit

Lindy 02-03-2011 05:23 PM

There is history of heart disease in GD Henri's family. Grand Duke Jean's brother, Prince Charles, died at the age of 49 from what I believe was a heart attack.
Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte's brother, King Baudouin of Belgium, also died rather young from heart failure. I hope Henri recovers quickly!

sugarbaby318 02-03-2011 05:25 PM

Oh no! I really hope he is okay. It does sound like they might be trying to downplay the seriousness of it all. And heart disease does run in the family as Lindy said. I will keep the whole family in my thoughts and prayers.

If Henri had a cardiac arrest and an emergency angioplasty, then I find it impossible that he has been discharged from hospital. His heart stopped and he should be monitored closely. I wonder if he had a blockage because angioplasty doesn't diagnose heart rhythm problems. In any case I'm very glad he received prompt medical care and I will keep the Grand Duke and his family in my prayers.

He has not been released from the hospital.

Let's hope we get more reassuring news !

Al_bina 02-04-2011 12:21 PM

I wish Grand Duke Henry speedy recovery.

Rayarena 02-04-2011 07:41 PM

That is so sad to hear. Being a head of state is a stressful job. I wonder if that contributed to his heart illness? I hope that he gets better soon. By the way, Grand Duchess Maria Teresa also had some sort of surgical procedure not too long ago.

Dani90 02-04-2011 07:57 PM

GDss had gynecological related surgery

Saschana 02-05-2011 07:32 AM

The Grand Duke has left the hospital, I will stay and relax in the Castle of Berg for the upcoming weeks.
