dis-heartened.

i had to go and see my heart consultant today,11am.i was there at 10.35,finally went in to see him at 11.45.running late as usual.nice man,made me feel at ease...........before clobbering me with the news that he had reviewed the pictures of the recent angio i had,and that there are 2 arteries that need attention,more than the tablets i am on will cure,which is why i am still getting angina when i do too much.( not that i do before you write lucy,lol.i hear your keyboard tapping as i write this,x)also,and more worrying,i take an ant-acid for hiatus hernia,and because i am on aspirin and heart meds.i have to change it.quick.apparently it has been proven to cause clots in stents fitted.oh gee,thanks doc.gets better lol. anyway,he said,look,i think you need to have this sorted,do you want to go ahead?well,duhhhhhh,lol.of course.if it will stop the pain and discomfort,if it will stop another heart attack,then yes.he has said it should be about 6 weeks,so fingers crossed. mum took the news suspiciously calmly,i am not sure she actually understands.i now have to sort carers out to look after her,i shall only be in hospital for a day.at least i presume so,full details will be sent to me,and i have to have a pre-op assessment first.hope everyone is ok,thanks for messages,thanks lucy for being there,thanks carol for the lap dance lol.( she didddddd,shame was a facebook application lol) and guido for being a good and kind person.take care all,i shall post some pics when i download them soon,enjoy this lovely weather.mort

You know me pretty well don't you, Mort. Ok since you immediately said "Don't nag, Lucy" I won't but you had just darn well do as you are told by the doctors. You take care Mort. Get some help with getting a carer for your mum. I better stop while I am ahead or you will think I am nagging. Just remember, I WILL BE WATCHING AND WAITING.

Glad they found it when they did. Six weeks will be here and gone before you know it.

Well it is best that they found it now. I don't know how you feel, having nevr been there, but a in life, when there is a opportunity to improve, we usually take it. I know 6 weeks sounds far our, but when it is over, this should help some.
In the mean time don't push and take care of yourself.
You are a pretty tough cookie.
