“If you have been following my recent blogs, these have been a most interesting and stressful couple of weeks for me. Two weeks ago I was swimming 100 meter sprints in a pool but, now I am restricted for a couple of weeks from doing anything that might cause pressure on my last week’s neck surgery. Yes, I had my carotid artery cleaned out because a small load of fatty stuff was restricting blood from reaching the brain. I did not have any symptoms beforehand but a recent LIFE-LINE screening showed a significant blockage. After seeing the results, I headed off to a heart doctor to schedule an appointment, which took almost six weeks to get (shades of Canadian Health-Care) and thus began the journey to the place I am today, that is, 1001 Stitched Neck Drive, Confusion City, WV.”
