    Glad your still vertical, I had a H/A Sept 13 last year although had a very stiff 1 hour conversation with my wife about going up to ED, even though I pretty much knew the game was on, it was the pain in my jaw and the crushing feeling in my chest that signalled me a dumb ***, so get to ED already.
    Anyway put me on a plane up to Fiona Stanley at 23:00, came in a 08:25 with the paperwork for the stent op I hardly got to read anything before being turfed onto a gurney and the rest is toast except they should have put 2 in instead of one in, so I had to have another op about a month later for another stent, my cardio down here well she was livid they neglected to do it the first time.
    Two stories from Fiona Stanley after the op I was busting to go to the loo but had to lie on my back for 6 hours and not get out of bed after the op, as they had gone up through the femoral artery if you bust that stitching your in a whole world of hurt to say the least, try eating your tea lying flat on your back!

    I managed to get 2 steps from the bed when on a chance the nurse came in Wow! what a roasting I got from her and rightly deserved, the other was a conversation I had from my bed with a nurse as I complimented the food at the hospital as being really tasty and good.
    Without a pause in her stride "Your the only one here that likes it" guess country people are thankful for what ever meal they can get I suppose.

    Take each day as it comes and enjoy it for what it is a gift, I too like allot of us here have amassed stuff that goes in all directions but mainly books and allot of ordnance/cartridges, I have good friends I trust to dispose of the latter as they are in the game, but the books of which is close to 1800-2000 of, I have started to itemise them on a XLS sheet with a guide value from ABE & Amazon.
    Look after yourself and take care cherish those that love you as its a very scary thing to have happen not only for you but for them as well.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    Get well soon! Having my wife deal with my collection is/was a huge fear of mine so that is why when I post pictures of my collection you will see a metal ID disc attached. I have inventoried most of the items with a description and ball park value. Value changes constantly but it will help her a lot in case she has to deal with it.

    Just had an adventure down that road. It's a wake up.



    All the best for your recovery.

    MJ, don't take this personally, but that's crap.

    Been thinning out my collection for some time. Problem is that She Who Must Be Obeyed sees a new kitchen on the horizon.

    Thanks to all for the kind comments and good wishes.
    It's back to work for me from Monday. Starting off with a couple of weeks "light duties", and we'll see how it goes from there.
