    Direly damp & dank.

                In with the hoi polloi

                It rained all the way down to town.

                  Missed a phone call from the GP’s surgery earlier. I assumed something ominous must have shown up in last week’s blood tests

                  Just called them back, and they need to do one of the tests again because it got messed up somehow

                  I forgot to ask which one, but it’s not a fasting one so I suspect it's the potassium test that got messed up last year as well - the nurse told me when doing last year’s repeat test that the lab sometimes leaves them lying around for too long, which screws up the results.

                    They took me down for the angiogram just after half two. It all went pretty much as expected on my end. However, it turned out the problem revealed was a blockage of the Left Main Stem. And the bigger problem was that when he brought the catheter anywhere near it to attempt to start the process of putting a stent in, the artery started to collapse. When the catheter was withdrawn it immediately recovered; it's a thing that happens sometimes, but the upshot is: no stent for me

                    So now I'm in the Coronary Care Unit hooked up to all the things that they thought I wasn't sick enough to need since Sunday, waiting to see a surgeon about a bypass

                    Ho hum
