    Dear Spinner

    Take care. Best wishes from Uralla (where I am tonight).

    Keep us informed of your recovery.

    Spin, you don't need this, you've had your quota of medical issues this year! Dang, just cut it out. Doc says you seem to have heart disease, get a second opinion as you're doing. Love and take care!

    Thank you dear friends. The cardio specialist does not think that I have a heart problem. They'll be running a bunch of tests today, such as an atomic cardio test, stress test, ultrasound, etc., to rule out heart condition. They have done tons and tons of blood work.

    These two ladies were great. One paramedic, one nurse. All they do are these medevac flights. The one on the left had already done a flight to and from Sitka today. The other went with a Learjet to Seattle and back today. They were a hoot and we had some good times.

    I wanted to walk up to the plane rather than going in with them carrying me. So my trusty old crocks were on and they let me walk. (Slowly)

    I didn't want to lie down for the flight, so they let me so up in a regular seat.

    If you've got the steam to shoot photos and post them, I'd say the prognosis is good.

    I am so glad you're getting checked out and cared for, Spin.

    Stay well, Friend.

    Some really great shots for you photo-essay "They're coming to take me away, they are." Don't let them take your phone from you.

    I just wish I could have documented the procedure where they implanted my pacemaker.
    Best wishes for a continuing photo-essay.

    Always BLOOD work! Every time I go see a doc, it's MORE BLOODY BLOOD TESTS! Guess hospitals/doctors are the same everywhere.

    It looks like that plane door has another section that will open. I hope so I would hate to get a stretcher through there. Get right, Spin.

    After having all the tests you name and they still couldn't find my problem.
    The next step for me was Cardiac Catheterization and bada bing, everything was clear.
    Angioplasty and stents and I was better than before.
    That was 12 years ago.
    I can only imagine how it is now.
    Star Trek stuff I'm sure.
    Hang in there Spinner.
    Keep calm, persistence beats resistance.
