Mini-setback

After a very rapid recovery so far, J was due to come home today. Unfortunatley, last night he had some more chest pain - well he said soreness, but the Dr said it was either pain or it wasn't. :)

Anyway, he had to stay in and undergo a stress test - running on a treadmill. That would put me in CCU... The results are promising - he may have a narrowing of his coronary artery but no blockage and no more pain.

With a bit of luck he will be home tomorrow.

Crikey ! I missed that. We were away. Hope J continues to improve, and that you both are able to gear down a bit. Getting older is awful as the potential halth worries increase. I don't like it at all !
Go eat some oily fish ! Seriously, take good care of yourselves and try not to worry too much.

I''m so glad you posted today I have been concerned with no news - I agree if I tried doing a stress test on a treadmill I would end up in CCU too.

And I agree with Emma get out the cod liver oil - I have to start again - as soon as I get some orange juice to chase it with - even the non taste ones need a chaser on general principal to me.... :D



oh good lord you should see the word verification I have to do - bet it takes more than once today ....
