Your Life in Their Hands

My GP telephoned today to say that my 24 hour tape analysis has come back showing an anomaly that may prove to be something or nothing. It’s sufficient to have me checked out further. I have to see my GP tomorrow to be checked for valvular heart disease prior to my seeing a Cardiology specialist.

Long term readers may immediately recognise the import of this statement. I however did not, and it took Mr L to remind me:

When we sold our last house, it was a more than usually traumatic experience (and, believe me, we have had some bad ones). It transpired at the time that the buyer was a consultant cardiologist.

Well. It’s going to be a stressful visit to the hospital, isn’t it?

Eep. My palpitations suddenly worsened.

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
