I have a heart...

 ...kidneys, liver and a pancreas!

Some of my regular readers may have been aware that I had a little bit of a health scare the other day when I grumbled about a sharp pain in my chest after exertion sometimes, nothing painful just a sensation that I thought would get checked out "just in case" (See Zombie Runner). So with a series of blood tests, a chest X-Ray and an ECG later I returned to the Doctor's this morning armed with my ECG printout.

After taking a seat in his surgery he looked over the readout and informed me that my kidneys and liver were functioning correctly, I wasn't diabetic, thyroid was fine and blood count excellent which is great news such that I now feel a bit of a sham but happy that I have a clean bill of health.

However, he has organised a Treadmill Test for the New Year that will record how my heart reacts under strain and that I should carry on my healthy lifestyle.

I had to laugh to myself after I left as I recalled him saying "You have a healthy diet and outlook carry on what you are doing" So that sounds like a diet that includes cider and an occasional Gin & Tonic is what the Doctor ordered ;-)


  1. Glad to hear things are well with you. Health scares are serious business and checking it out is the right thing to do. The treadmill test might be fun.

  2. Glad to hear there's nothing seriously wrong
