Best Foot Forward

Today was the dreaded ECG on treadmill test at Gloucester Royal. Husband had to drive me as I am hopeless with directions. We left very early to avoid the usual bottleneck at The Air Balloon Roundabout and arrived in good time. Treadmill was fine even with wonky knees but unfortunately the ECG still shows irregularities so next week Husband is having to drive me to Cheltenham for an angiogram. I think I probably have my mother's "bad" genes and so I am not expecting good news. I feel pretty frustrated - I do not smoke or drink and I swim to keep myself in good shape despite the knees. Oh well - best to tackle these problems head on and get oneself fixed!

What a **** wotsit. Hope your medics are lovely AND good looking.

10 and 1/2 years ago dear dad was undergoing all sorts of heart tests. He told me about a treadmill test where he got to drape his arm around the very skilled, competant and nice looking female cardiologist while checks were made throughout the test. Hope you get a lovely doctor too.

My dear Dad had many tests, ended up being tested and dismissed because of the whole list of heart problems he DIDN'T have.

End result was diagnosis of an arythmic heart beat (scuse spelling). Heart Arythmia = Dad has a syncopated heart rhythm, it sometimes gest out of "beat". 11 years on - He is doing so very well now at 78 years young and surviving 50 years of marriage too!!

oh - and surviving being the Dad of two stroppy daughters too, LOL.

When I was 11 he was heard to mutter that "even the bloody cat is female"

Sending much love, hope, healing and gentle caring hugs your way

Sorry to hear that, however, you are and have looked after yourself so most likely stopped it being much worse.

Hope you get sorted out soon.

Lindsay, I'm knew to this blogging caper, but appreciate you having a read of mine, and in turn have looked at yours.

Wonderful to meet with people on the other side of the world. Love your beautiful green countryside. We by contrast are such a 'sunburnt country'.

Do wish you all the best with your health. My thoughts will be with you. Look forward to staying up to date via your site.

Kindest Regards

Hope it all turned out well, Lindsay. I know exactly what you mean about fearing the worst..(for me not you!)...but I am trying to be postive...just like you.

Thank you for your lovely comments over at mine.

At least the cricket is cheery at the moment (not for your brother though)...when will the English team go back to proper whites? If only, if only...
