You never know when life is going to throw a brick at you....

Well there I was, just minding my own business, back from my 2 week trip away, dying to catch up with what everyone had been up to in blogland and planning to share what I'd achieved in that time.
Sunday night, had dinner, and half an hour later ended up with the worst case of indigestion. Felt sick, threw up and went to bed. Couldn't sleep properly all night, still felt like hell the next morning and to cut a long story short, ended up being taken to hospital by ambulance to discover it was not indigestion...I'd had a heart attack!!  Blooming heck!! Ended up in theatre to have a blockage removed from the front artery and had a metal stent put in. You can see the difference it made, in the photo.

I had 3 days in the Coronary Care Unit and the whole time I was thinking about the album I needed to get finished for this 21st present. Luckily I had 3 hours when I got home to do the finishing touches and get it delivered. Probably overdid it a bit but felt so much better when it was out of the way and I have just taken it very easy this weekend.
It really has been a bit of a shock to the system. And I now feel like a walking pharmacy with all the drugs they've put me on. But I'm also wondering if this is going to turn out to be one of those "this was the best thing that ever happened to me" moments....and will there be a book at the end of it?? LOL!!
 So once again this week I will be trying to catch up with what everyone's been up to and seeing what I've missed out on. I have to take it pretty easy for the next 6 weeks so I have the perfect excuse to sit and read blogs eh!! xx
