            Walk briskly walked, green ring closed

            Sunny now, but there was a nasty bitter breeze in my face at the start. I think I'd prefer it coming from the other direction so it's in my face at the end, when I've warmed up

              Sounds like my Dad might need a pacemaker. Turns out they're pretty straightforward to install these days - local anaesthetic, and often home the same day

                Walk and cafe with loony lady 1. She was late as usual. Dunno which is worse, hanging around for 20 minutes waiting for her or still being in the shower when loony lady 2 turns up way early.

                  Went on a long walk to a supermarket.

                  Someone mentioned the moon on the way back so everyone on the bloody road was staring at it.

                      My Dad is home from the hospital

                      Turns out what they thought was a slow heartbeat is more complicated than that. At the GP's they reckoned it was about 32, and at home on the blood pressure thingy it thought the same, and in triage at A&E the same, which at least got him fast-tracked to Majors. But in there, it was around the mid-60s

                      The explanation the consultant gave is that alternate beats of his heart are for some reason rather drawn out, so rather than "ba-dum, ba-dum, ba-dum" it's more like "ba-dum, baaaaa-dum, ba-dum". That drawn-out beat runs into the next one, so on lesser equipment they're only detected as one beat and it shows 32bpm. The more sophisticated equipment found somewhere like Majors can tell what's going on and, correctly, shows 64bpm

                      So although there's clearly something that could do with being examined more closely, it's not necessarily as urgent as a 32bpm heart rate would be. They'll attach one of those 24-hour monitors to him, but there was no point keeping him in hospital for that because: they've got a long wait for beds; the 24-hour monitors for outpatients are if anything being dealt with more quickly than for inpatients; and he's got less chance of catching Covid at home
