Hi All..... well if you`re over fifty, take a tip and have your heart checked out.

For a few days leading up to Monday 5th, working on the van I had mild discomfort in the chest and occasional bout of breathlessness..Didn`t set off any alarms til last Monday, just sitting on the recliner sipping a coffee and BAM....... it hit hard......... Six days in cardiac unit with a couple of procedures and I`m home again.

Obviously it wasn`t that easy All those little `discomfort` sessions add up and each one is causing damage,, as my surgeon said you should have came in earlier, if I had been away or driving... the outcome would heve been very different.. Saying all that..I cant drive for two weeks, cant lift anything heavier than a coffee, so I have my painter guy coming round on wed to recommence working on the van.
WE have about three more base coats to go, before clear.
Earlier I had thought of a R66 theme. Now I`m wondering if a "BatVan" theme might work. stay well.

Glad you're going to be OK. Three years ago I had similar symptoms, but not the BAM . Went to doc, ended up with a quadruple bypass. Took 16 weeks before I could work again (carpenter).

I'm thinking a Matman Van, instead of the Batman theme. Super Vanner cheating Death and all. And besides, that theme song is totally working for ya.

Daaamnaan, that was close. Take it easy. And that's an odor!
