Small heart attack. Carried away in an ambo with what seemed to me like the mother of all stomach aches, but when they put the ECG machine on me all became clear.

Bypassed the local hossie to one in the next county that has a specialist cardiac unit, straight in with no waiting for a dyna rodding through my wrist.

Given more tablets than I can shake a stick at. A couple of weeks rest and I can resume daily life. Lucky indeed.

Thanks guys. I really am a lucky boy. It was weird, no crushing chest paint on pain in my arms, just the most god awful stomach ache.

One funny moment. Two really nice ambo guys arrived to see to me. They declared I needed to go to hossie as they thought from the symptoms I might have an ulcer. Anyhoo, they asked me if i was able to walk to the ambo and I said I could. I slowly stood up and loomed over the pair of them and one of them wisecracked, "thank f@$# were not carrying you".

Just black and blue really. If the stomach pain had been 5% more bearable I might have put it down to a bug and not even called ambo.

Speedy recovery Drago. Looks like you have to spend more time riding the CC forum.

Yeah, home again. In Hossie for not quite 24hrs.

The guy in the next bed from me had a really bad heart attack on Wednesday. He's a smoke and drinker and it caught up with him big time and by all accounts had a right nasty one. He was discharged the same time as me looking right as rain less than 72 hrs later. The techniques are so advanced its unbelievable.

BTW, I'm pretty sure the Doctor that dyna rodded me was Yusef Islam. Spitting image.

A huge thanks to all the staff at the KGH Cardiac unit. Every single one was clearly dedicated to the patients. It's a chuffing disgrace that such valuable and committed people are paid peanuts while professional footballers who bring nothing to society earn gazillions. The world has gone truly mad.
