I had a follow up visit twice after the procedure. They did blood work and the medicines were changed/dosage reduced. Joelk the Doctor did look into the aches in the back and arms and went through the results of the tests. The aches and pains have now gone and I feel better. I too have started driving now since a few days.

Am going to work from 1.3.24.

Girish,

Glad to hear you’re doing well! Definitely good news indeed.

I was walking to my office (which is a km away) on 6.1.24 and suddenly felt breathless and jaw hurting. Just sat down on the footpath. After a few minutes, recovered enough to hail a rickshaw and go to the emergency at the hospital, also a km away.

Underwent an angiogram and angioplast procedure wherein four blocks were discovered and stents inserted. Was in hospital for five days and am now back home and moving about and taking walks. The tablets cause occasional aches and pains in the arms and back, otherwise, I am okay. Planing to join back to work on first march.

I was taking a tablet a day for BP and this really was out of the blue and scary. Used to get checkups about once a year. Anyway, health is important and we need to check up regularly.

Girish Vaidya
Wishing you a speedy recovery Girish

I have been away since a week & will be in on / off in the coming months.

My father was unwell so had to travel to India quite regularly since Jan. He had a surgery last week and was shifted to ICU post surgery. He passed away on 13th Apr morning due to complications.

Have been occupied with the funeral services , rituals and paperwork since then.

Apologies for the delayed response and the commitments.

Very sorry to hear, Kenneth. All my best to you and yours.

Life’s gotten in the way too on my end - I owe many of you thanks for a small stack of covers and swaps that arrived in recent weeks. Will catch up when I can, but for now, a big collective thank you.
