    Hi all

    Well as I said in the update thread I had not been feeling well so I headed off to the doctor on Tuesday lunchtime to check things out
    Whilst I was there I spoke to the doctor about some chest pain the previous evening. This was enough to have blood tests conducted urgently.
    The results of these tests came back positive for the enzyme that indicates heart attack, by 4pm on GP orders I was in the Coronary Care Unit at the nearest hospital.
    After a couple of days of good care but boredom I had an angiogram this morning that showed all blood vessels to be ok, however the echo test has shown that the underlying cause for all the pain and symptoms is Hypertropic Obstuctive Cardiomyopathy

    So a couple days of rest for the angiogram procedure is called for

    Cheers
    Phil

    Always good to get back home, isn't it? Rest, relax, and try to take it easy, my friend. And most importantly - Get well soon!

    I know from personal experience how difficult it is to have plans and parts - and have to put it on hold for health reasons. But you gotta take care of yourself first...
