So the intensive therapy has worked and your dual-personality problem is now a thing of the past?
Hello Expat!I ’m not sure it is a dual-personality problem, but I will definitely discuss with me and myself as soon as I can get us all into the same room at the same time!Did you have a super festive season? We did, even though we’ve found it difficult to come to terms with cold, cold England after having spent the previous eight winters in Tenerife. It’s so easy to forget what low temperatures are like – frosted car windows, steamy breath, cold winds, and what it’s like to be cocooned in a heavy coat, woolly hat, scarf and gloves. But it has been good to celebrate Xmas and the New Year in more traditional style with family and friends. And Kathy has been hugely busy fussing over the new grandson : -)I had an endoscopy last Friday and it appears my oesophagus is OK. And since my lungs have also passed their tests with flying colours, the most likely cause of my chest pains is a cardiac problem. I had another ECG yesterday, but that showed nothing wrong! I’m now awaiting an angiogram and potential stents a la Prince Philip. Crikey - oesophagus, stents, angiogram (!) - Yippee! That’s three new words we can share out among ourselves...: -)
Me, myself and I...sounds like a menage a trois, or more correctly, a menage a moi!unfortunately, CI I am already familiar with all three words. John had an angiogram then angioplasty and three stents installed in one leg a couple of years ago. More recently, a couple of months or so ago he had an oesephagesic blockage (food got well and truly stuck half way down and he couldn't swallow at all - very scary) and we spent the day in the Emergency Room before they could clear it. He will be 69 this year also. The answer...or perhaps the problem in this case...is always 69!Hey, if Prince Phillip at 90 can be up and about so soon after heart surgery, a spring chickie like you will have no problem! Keep us posted.
Pleased to hear of your liberation, CI. Need to watch the old chest - don't let the buggers fob you off with a shrug.
Expat - I'm not surprised to hear about John. When we explained the reason for our return to England, I was astonished at how many members of our petanque club in Tenerife said that they too had had a stent operation. And they all look brilliantly healthy!:-)Jon - thanks for the tip - as my Mum used to say, if you don't ask, you don't get...:-)
Sorry CI. That's two years running I've not got here on time.Belated Happy Birthday, my friend.69, eh? You must be loving it. :-)
But you are here on time, JW - today is my birthday. Thank you for popping in!Today I had the date for my angiogram confirmed for 1st February. Welcome news - I can't wait to get back to the sunshine in Tenerife afterwards.Hope you had a great Hogmanay!:-)
Thank the stars and the planets and all that. Thought you were the 18th, CI. Will never forget your birthday now as my wedding anniversary is on a 19th.Hope all goes well health-wise for you and Happy 69th to you. Any Bucket List things to be done this year?
JW - Bucket List activity #1 is happening today, with a belated birthday party at a local pub. All four of my kids will be there. It's a special occasion, because it will be the first time in years that we will all have been in the same place at the same time!Now you've got me thinking about #2.. :-)
Darn! I usually rely on Dolores to remind me of birthdays. I'm hopeless. Happy belated! I hope it was a good one.I trust the angiogram will go well. I'lll be winging good wishes your way on the 1st.
Hope you had a joyous day with your offspring, CI. I'm sure the next morning with your head still spinning you didn't know if you were 69 or 96. :-)
Hi CI in Perfect Health - Hurray - from library internet on IOW - children's section is very calm till Story Time, which is always a joy.Was thinking of you on your birthday - glad you've been having terrific times - keep at it! (as if you'd do anything other...0
