... I ended the year being carted of to hospital with a suspected heart attack. After the usual x-ray, ECG and blood tests, It turned out to be atrial fibrilation, possibly brought about by a chest infection. All brought under control and sent home with antibiotics. Bloody frightening though. Happily, I am now back to normal.

Well, we know you've got a heart now then.

You had better be a careful Bob now.

Get well soon.

Best wishes Bob. I know from experience that heart things are very scary. I try to keep away from any sniffles or coughs I hear now. Hope you are soon better and have a Happy New Year! <3

Thank you all for your good wishes. I have had three heart attacks, so know the symptoms. There were enough that night to make me fear the worst. No harm done though. Happy new year to you all. And good health.
