shield bug and update

By CarolG  
First of all, many thanks to those people who gave my last upload their user award, apologies for not thanking you in person, but my life has taken yet another change..........
I had to go to hospital with chest pains 10 days ago, which turned out to be a small heart attack. An angiogram showed up a blocked artery, which was repaired there and then, and a 7 day stay in hospital to keep an eye on me. Is there anything else that can happen to me now???
I will be attempting to get back into ePZ full time now, but need to re-stock my archives, so must try and get out with the camera again.
I hope you are all having a good weekend, the heat and sunshine is still with us here, but some thunderstorms are forecast for the middle of the week.

Hi Carol. Missed you. Sorry about the heart attack, but luckily they found out about it in time. These repairs are usually extremely effective, and you should feel like a new woman again soon. Your Shieldbug photo is extremely effective, with lovely pastel colours. Regards Martin

Sorry to hear about your health scare Carol. Time to ditch the cigarettes. Thete are only a handful of healthy people on Epz at present. We all seem to be falling apart at the seams. Hope you gather your health back soon.
