Couldn't believe the news when I woke up this morning. Best wishes for a speedy recovery for Prince Joachim and much strength to the Danish Royal Family.

The PC-chief Lene Balleby has issued a written statement Sunday noon.

Prins Joachims situation er fortsat stabil. Prinsen kom heldigvis i professionel behandling i tide og har det efter omstændighederne godt.

- Hvor længe prinsen skal være indlagt, er det for tidligt at sige noget om på nuværende tidspunkt,

"Prince Joachim's situation is still stable. Fortunately the Prince received professional treatment in time and he is, the circumstances considered, well.
At present it is too soon to say anything about how long the Prince must remain committed to hospital."

The former has no significant impact on risk assessment for the children of the affected person, whereas the latter is a big red flag for people like myself.


The good thing is that cardiovascular risk is now a highly manageable condition. There is very effective medication which, combined with lifestyle choices, can guarantee life expectancy in line with or even beyond that of the average population. It is just a matter of everybody knowing their own risk for sure.

very scary news, but it sounds like they reacted on time and rushed him to hospital for treatment. let's hope to hear some more good news soon.

Because cardiovascular diseases run in my family as well; I did make that connection as I've seen events at different ages among my own family members (while my grandmother's generation showed these events mostly in their 60's; for my father it happened around his 50th birthday (I am glad to say he recognized the signs in time and open heart surgery saved his life and he is still with us).

So, in Joachim's case there might be a connection to/slightly higher risk given his grandfather's heart attack.

The head of the ED at the local hospital in Cahors that Joachim was initially admitted to more or less described the timeline to TV2:

The hospital was notified at around 9pm.

When Joachim arrived at the emergency room, he was received by an emergency doctor, a radiologist and a neurologist.

After having been scanned and assessed, it was decided that he was to be moved to Toulouse as the hospital in Cahors is not equipped to perform the procedure he would need.

He was then driven to Toulouse by ambulance – apparently not airlifted there as previously reported (TV2 make a point out of making that correction at the end of the article). Here he was operated on shortly after his arrival.

That is scary news on Prince Joachim. I wish him a quick recovery and that the DRF remains strong in these times.

I only just read this news and I am shocked. It was a few days ago that i was looking at photos of Joachim, Marie, all four of the children and even Alexandra together for the summer holidays. Now this?!

Don't take anything for granted, ever. Life is so precious and so fragile...

Very unexpected news! It sounds like he was treated quickly, at least. I hope that his recovery is smooth and he’ll be able to resume all his usual activities in good time.

It has emerged that the French publication La depeche interviewed Joachim and Marie at Chateau Cayx only two hours prior to Joachim going down.

https://www.ladepeche.fr/2020/07/26/...on-8995285.php

My French is a little rusty so I'll translate a few excerpts from the article published in BT:
https://www.bt.dk/royale/kort-foer-b...achim-og-marie

It was a couple in high spirit who was interviewed for 45 minutes.
"This is the most beautiful balcony in France. To be able to enjoy it is one of my greatest privileges. It's hard to be without.
My very first trip abroad was to Lot (this part of France). I was here for three months. My father was born here. I come here almost every year, especially in the summer.
It's a place that has a special place in my heart, because I have experienced wonderful moments with my family."

Marie:
"I was first here twelve years ago. I sat on this balcony that my husband is talking about and I fell in love with this extraordinary place. I fell in love at first sight.
We all love it. Both local gastronomy, the good wine and first and foremost the authenticity. We don't come to see Lot, we come to experience it."

There being no mentioning of Alexandra and the oldest sons, I assume they weren't there.

J&M planned to leave the chateau this week. (Sunday?)

---------------

The PM, Mette Frederiksen, has conveyed her well wishes to Joachim and the DRF.

-----------------

I wonder, should Joachim become unable to work or simply need a long break to recover his strength (that is one of the side-effects), that they might stay at Cayx. It's a quiet, tranquil place where Joachim and his wife will feel perfectly at home. And it's far from curious eyes.

It is good to know that Prince Joachim is doing as well as possible under these circumstances.

What is the reason that it is being taken for granted that he will be repatriated to Denmark as soon as feasible? Seeing as, as others pointed out, first-class medical treatment is accessible to him in France also, and he has established a home in that country.

Of course he could be treated in France and that might even be the best option, in regards to the children certainly.
I believe it would be considered odd if a member of the DRF was a burden to a hospital system in foreign country - not least in the middle of an epidemic.

It would perhaps also be seen as odd that he wasn't treated in DK, because the treatment here, especially in regards to rehabilitation is also very good. The neuro-center at Hammel, (not far from where we live BTW) is world class and specialize in rehabilitating patients with severe brain damage.

Why would he be considered a burden to the French health system? Isn’t one of the points of being a EU citizen to have equal access to the healthcare system of all member countries? Although we are in the middle of a Covid pandemic, people still have other conditions too and should not be considered a burden for taking hospital beds because of their conditions.

Right now, the most important consideration should be the best interest of the patient. It is probably unadvisable if not outright impossible to remove him from France to Denmark given how recent his event and his operation were. I don’t think the medical team would agree to do that.

Furthermore,, given in this case the Covid pandemic, it may be recommended that the Queen stay in Denmark and do not go to France to visit Joachim, which might be a risk for her.

This is stunning news because he is so young. I hope he does not smoke and that Second-Hand Smoke is very bad for people.
