O my god Kev.. get a new GP... and keep moving is my plan for life.
That's what I thought Jeff. I did all the right things. I walked 11ks every morning and again in the evening. Hadn't smoked for 14 yrs. Ex military so looked after myself, and then told I needed the bypass due to "hereditary cholesterol". Continued to look after myself after that and then got took with an abdominal aortic aneurism. Apparently very few survive outside a hospital setting if it ruptures, as you bleed out in a matter of seconds. The normal size is around 2cms mine was 6.3 with no symptoms and was only discovered with the annual check on my bypass.............so, I decided that my card was already marked and one of the first things I did coming out of hospital, was to have a ciggy...............let it all hangout...............life's not about how long you live but how you live it
I reckon that this combo took me places I wouldn't go., spiritually, mentally blah blah. First time I've ever been (almost) totally happy with what I was producing. I'll still go there with the m43 kit and I know I'll bemoan the loss of IQ, but if I struggle to hold the combo steady, what's the point of hanging onto it and being reminded that my body's fecked, and letting that detract from what I love doing?.............just being out there!
