    Sorry to hear about all your recent misfortune - sounds like a proper downer!

    I can't do anything today - but tomorrow I should be able to. (assuming I get paid - which can be a bit tenuous at the moment!)
    Otherwise I'll be all used up on a killing spree!

    Dunno if it can wait that long, though?

    I'll have to be in central Bristol for about an hour somewhere between around 1800-2000 tomorrow, but outside of those times should be fine.
    I'm assuming it will fit in a caddy van - and is liftable by a knackered out old(ish) guy?

    Do the details on PM, if you like - probably easier!

    All the Best,
    CJ

    Cheers thats only brief resume hehe, ps im not after sympathy, as some of it is my own fault for being stupid but most it is just because it can it has! .
    Not sure till monday state of my heart the consultant guy that checked me out said its only workin 20% and was shocked and not expecting to tell me that ,
    Hehe... HE was shocked !! Lucky i was sent by dvla or i wouldnt have known till i was probably up shoot creek hehe well im up there now but at least at mo have half a paddle well actually 20 % and the shafts got a hernia ...but i can still fight the tide, just have to hope there isnt a tsunami .

    Sorry guys postin on phone and hate using it for posting one of the reasons i stopped coz lost the interweb for mths but phone needs it also coz no phone signal, then got out of the habit plus didnt feel like the world liked me tbh ( the world prob had good reason haha)
    Cheers for any help
    Im still workin i have to ! but reduced pulling and draging till i know the score, mind you the hernia sees to that, it just puts me on my knees screaming trying to pull the imaginary red hot knife out of my left testi !

    Give you all a laugh consultant said i couldnt leave hospotal coz he had injected me with adrenaline to stress test the ticker and had to stay for 1/2 hr incase i snuffed it .so went to cafe and asked for beans on toast with cheese melted on it .
    Oh we dont do that .. BUT... we can do cheese on toast and i can put beans on top of that ! so i said hmmm let me think about it, ha... so i said ok , i will just eat it stood on my head in the corner , she said oh i dont thinkthey will allow that !!! You will have to be at a table . Serious or what
    Hmmm and i thought i was being silly.

    oh Great Thanks Frank that sounds interesting and promising!, not having symtoms is encoraging... to me at least I suppose, but the look on the consultant face wasnt though!! and the OH he let out, was a bit scary hehe, I said the "OH" sounds BAD... he said thats coz it is ! I said that sounds even badder:laughing:, then he started talkin heart failure clinic and said I know that seems and sounds daunting, YEP FLIPPIN RIGHT IT DOES , but there is few things that can be done ie pacemakers etc he then looked back at my medical records:rules: and said, oh you where diagnosed 10 yrs ago !!! I said should I have not known then ? he said, ER yes, treatment should have been started years ago !!
    I am just so lucky I suppose that I had a HGV and they paid for the test.
