Sounds reasonable to me.
The world looks so different after learning science. For example, trees are made of air, primarily. When they are burned, they go back to air, and in their flaming heat is released the flaming heat of the Sun which was bound in to convert air into tree.

Stents came out this morning, and it was a thoroughly unpleasant experience. Hopefully the stinging will stop in a couple of days

Stents...arteries...heart hmmmmm glad you survived. I know two peeps just a little older than me who recovered and continue to blossom having had stents and well, their health just depresses me!

Onwards.

Went to give a blood sample for PSA test at midday. If there's a problem, they''ll let me know. If not, they won't! :shock: Well that's what she said.

Thanks for that. She did say it's possible to get a 'false positive'.

That's the main criticism of a psa blood test . Hence the need for an mri scan but thd queue for such goes right round the block.

Much better thanks Phil
Took two days, but then I just got better and better

The hospital visits felt surreal in that it was like people had come from all over the world just to make me better
