    Wow !!! Sad – I really like how you picked such an interesting time, hope it is not a personal experience 😦

  2. Mel,
    It wasn’t, but now that you mention it, it was really close to that… I was with my dad in the hospital after he had a heart attack. While we were talking, he paused, the monitors beeped and the nurses came rushing in… later they determined that he had had another small heart attack while we were in there talking.

    He’s doing fine now, that was a few years ago. 82 (I think) and going strong.

    Not sure where these few came from, I just decided to get serious after the Yoda haikus.

    Thanks for the feedback

    Stephen
