Actually I was thinking of you and Troy the other day – I was walking my dog past the hotel where you stayed . . . also, I have found a great eating place at the Rocks that I'd like to take you both – I wish I had known about it when you were here . . . anyway – next time !

Well, to put you all in the picture, this is the calm before the storm so to speak. At the moment I am recovering from an Angiogram I had done last week.

In the next 6 weeks I will been having major heart surgery to repair a large hole in my heart that I have apparently had since birth ! I only found this out in February and have been having investigative procedures since then so the surgeons can decide how best to repair it.

I have had no major dehabilitating symptoms, and only found out by accident when I went to join a gym (first time ever !) and then went to have a check up to see if I was 100% to exercise however much I wanted . . . . I am not the fittest person in the world, but I have been pretty active and am in good shape.

The GP I went to heard a murmur in my heart and sent me to a Cardiologist for an ultrasound. That's how I found out!

All my friends and family are in shock at the moment because I look so well and have done all my life. The reality is that my heart has been working a lot harder than it should be and therefore is getting damaged as it is enlarged.

Anyway, them's the breaks and now I will have it repaired and hopefully be in better shape afterward. The bonus thing is that I am in the right city for such a surgery. The Victor Chang Institute at St. Vincents Private is where I'll be !

Woody – the hospital is on Oxford St. if you are coming over to check up on me! <img src='style_emoticons//cool.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’cool.gif’ /> (We went by it on the way to Bondi)

Sorry for the long blurb, just thought you should all hear it first hand now.

I have really appreciated all the words and thoughts that every member has taken time to post. Thank you all SO much !
