Retribution, divine or otherwise?

After my misbehaviour of Friday night and and my abject apologies of Saturday morning I thought I would be fine for the rest of the day. I was feeling well with only a minor hangover and looking forward to getting into work. However, as I went to my car I felt a slight chest pain - I should say that I had an MI and a CABG last year but felt I was making good progress. Pain resolved while driving but had another episode in work and working in an A&E unit everyone went into overdrive. Result? - seen by A&E consultant and admitted over the weekend. Everything was fine and I was allowed home Monday afternoon. So, many thanks to my colleagues and the staff in both wards I was in. Hmmm! I wonder if this had anything to do with Nurse k over at Crass pollination has she cursed me? I must have really pissed her off - nah I'm sure she's a nicer person than that.
Strange thing though, I have noticed that I seem to have acquired 2 pairs of pyjamas that are only for hospital use and my wife managed to fill my toilet bag only with what I needed and not with the crap that I usually put in it - has to be a girly thing. Oh and I really, really hate being on the other side - I do not make a good patient.
One good thing though, I managed to read Tom Reynolds book Blood, Sweat and Tea from his blog Random acts of reality I can thoroughly recommend it as it is a good read and is well written by someone who knows what he is talking about and more importantly seems to love what he does.

Glad to hear that the chest pain turned out all right. My mom had a quad bypass and three years ago and two of the bypasses aren't doing well at all now. I really need to get a check up myself but you know how that goes! Do as I tell you, not as I do.
