    Good news, Charles. Keep care of yourself and enjoy many years.

    I remember Blueblades -- trying to picture your avatar (I think that's what it's called).

    Best to you.

    Good to hear Charles. All the best to you for the future.

    I had quadruple bypass four years ago at 66 followed by 24 hours in ICU on potassium and magnesium drips to stabilise heart rate. All good now except I often wake up and lie still for half an hour while my heart sorts itself out. The human body is a remarkable thing.

    GrreatTeacher....I don’t take statins and my doctor has no problem with that. My experience is that you have a heart attack or two and then you think there might be something wrong.

    Before my operation I was up a ladder pruning a tree with a bow saw in the heat when I felt extremely tired and had to lie down. I was later told I had had two heart attacks including a “silent” one a week before.

    I’m back pruning trees (with power tools now) but if I feel overly tired I go and lie down. I guess the thing is not to worry about it too much. Most of the time I feel really well so who knows.
