    I hope that the hospital gave him a gown that matches his shirt and with a back which stays open up to his ears. Seriously Ian, best wishes.

    I do have a heart and it is beating.

    But that's all I know. They haven't called with the results yet.

    True to form, I identified another problem in America. Lab technicians afraid to speak! They just say "wait 'til the doctor calls you", yet they must have a hunch.

    It must be another case of this litigious society you live in.

    I am also insured. So no probelms there. But one advantage of being foreign is that if the bills get too big you can always leave.

    America has reach but credit history doesn't cross borders.

    Besides, I refuse to give out my social security.

    Thanks for all the well wishes.

    I got an EKG on my heart on Halloween. It turned out very normal and routine.
    Thursday I go in for a blood draw so they can "type" it, just to make sure what kind I have. I notice that when I dropped off my brother Shannon at Group Health in Bellevue yesterday for his foot issue, diabetic and having a hard time with a skiing surgery that doesn't like to heal, that my blood was red. They were keeping him overnight, so I went down the the car to bring in his bag, and when I straightened up after setting the bag down, I whacked my head on the sharp bottom edge of an LCD mounted off the wall, directly above the chairs.
    Nobody wanted to look at my bleeding head unless I checked in at the front desk. So I mopped it up and went back to work.
    We need the word back from Ian.
    In my news, I'm skipping an entire surgery. I was supposed to have a major one in September but they didn't order the tests they needed for it. When they did the test on October 5th, they found that things had recovered so much on their own, that they could skip that surgery and instead do a somewhat minor one that will allow me to start skiing in January. They're looking at a six week recovery after this upcoming one. I can't tell you how good that feels to skip one and the required three months of recovery that would have put off the final surgery that I'm I now getting this month.

    And I'm waiting for Ian's results, I hope they are good.

    All kidding aside, you are welcome Ian.

    That is good news Terry. I had been diagnosed with an ademona in my duodenum. the gastro doctor tatooed it in 2006 to mark it. I had seen a specialist for it that year too on a referral from my gastro doctor. Lst year I had a routine scope test again (upper) and it had disappeared. I guess these things happen somestimes if you leave them alone. Not always though, sadly.

    The biggest thing you can do for your heart is to take care of your gums. lol, honestly, I am being serious. It is soooo related, it aint funny. Floss for your life, that should be a dental slogan.

    Terry great news, sorry to hear about your head, but, that happens. Too bad they wouldn't look at it. That's the hospital for ya, don't die on their dime.

    Bob, that is called, Watch & Wait. It is in most cases a smart thing to do, for in that time, if nothing is happening, something news gets invented, or marketed, hopefully, some new & improved. I am always on W&W, I wait very well.

    I am shocked at Ian's smiley's! He is turning into a Yank.

    I am supposed to drink 3 big glasses of wine a day. Honest to God, for medicinal purposes, lol. I told the onc, yeah, next AA... no thanks. I know people who could be their own blood banks, I don't care to be one. But, the red wine does help manufacture red blood cells in the marrow, and, if... used, in moderation, can help with the heart, and improve relationships with spouses, lol.

    Ps. Ian, didn't anyone tell you, you got to bribe the techs, a double sawbuck works.
