Up early today...for me anyway...I'm off to hospital for the application of a stent in the heart. The surgeon is going to try and fit one, even though the artery is fully blocked. I'm told there's a 70% chance of success. Fingers crossed.

Best wishes Pete.
Just been finding out about them and their applications.
I am sure there is nothing to worry about,but that is easy for me to say I suppose.

See you around soon

Been there, done that. The worst part is having to lie on your back for six hours after the op. Have you ever tried to pee while lying on your back???
