HELLO FORKERS!

 Just back from the hospital.  Today was a good day - they got 2 of the three blockages completely cleared.  It took longer, and was more complicated than anticipated, but the cardiologist was pleased with the outcome (which he hopes will last a "lifetime").  Slight downside is that we have to wait 6 weeks before part 2 (the remaining blockage), to give Mr Chicky time to recover from the extra dye and x-rays they had to use to finish the job today.  But we feel like we have taken a big step forwards.

Huge thanks once again for the support on here - I could feel all those positive vibes, I really could.  I will sleep well tonight - not least because I have left Mr Chicky under observation in the hospital, and will have at least one night without being on 999 alert. 

Really glad Hosta has also taken a positive step forwards, and that winter sun beckons in the meantime.

Thank you all so much for the good wishes and the hugs - you are a lovely lot.  We will walk in there tomorrow just a little bit taller and positive as a result.

Hosta - fingers crossed for a good result with the ortho tomorrow, and for niece Verdun on Friday.  What a horrible thing to have built yourself up for a procedure, only to have it changed at the last minute......too stressful for words

night night all

I love my soft top too  Don't leave the club Dove

Not been around for a while.  Turns out that lovely, fit and healthy Mr Chicky has some nasty heart problems.  Several hospital stays later (some involving sirens to arrive), and we now know he needs 3 stents.  First 2 are being done tomorrow, last one a few weeks later.  His heart is still good and helathy, just need to get the arteries sorted.  Have been oscilating between lots of positive thinking and sheer terror.

DD's story, and those others have told as a result, have given me much strength.  So roll on tomorrow for part 1
