Good Morning Evewryone,
Still snowbound here in Brackley this morning.

PRINTMISS Mon 25-Mar-13 08:04:09

We have had very little snow here, thank goodness, because today my husband is off for a day stay in hospital in an effort to correct his irregular heart-beat. We have high hopes that this procedure will be successful, three other attempts over the past two/three years have failed, but this is another process that involves entering the heart through the groin and cauterizing the small portion of the valve/heart (I hope I have that right) causing the problem. We won't know of course until he starts trying to do all the things he has been unable to do, the disappointment if he can't will be a bit crushing for him, but we live in hope.

Hope all goes well PRINTMISS I have a friend who had similar problems now happily resolved. In fact he has just returned from a holiday in America.

It's bitterly cold here but very little snow. I've just returned from my morning walk with my three elderly hounds. They normally love their walks but have been very reluctant to leave the comfort of their beds during this recent cold snap.

Good morning! Good luck to your husband, Printmiss.

Good luck Printmiss.

Sounds like the same procedure as my late father had a few years ago.
Don't worry about me saying late as he passed away last year when he was nearly 90.
At that time he was kept in overnight and discharged the next morning.

Went patio bits shopping with Gary the Gardner. Bought a load of large pots from e homebase at very reasonable prices . Was pleasantly surprised. I was ambushed by a large lemon tree that jumped out of me and cried out 'buy me!' It was such a .ovely tree I succumbed and bought it. I already have 3 lemon trees 2 limes and a Kashmiri lime!oh and an olive tree as well.

Thank you all for your kind comments and thoughts - my husband is home, procedure went well and the consultant assures us that Tom will be able to do all the things he wants to do - bearing in mind his age of course, which he tends to forget at times. My only hope now is that this will be a continuing success, and not work for three months, then revert - that would be a really crushing disappointment for us both, after a all the other failures, but there we go, we are both still here, enjoying life, more so than a great many other folk.

PRINTMISS That's good to hear, your husband sounds a fighter which is always a good sign. Hugs for you ((( ))))
