AF Association

Holiday

Well I did it, I found All Clear Travel would insure me while waiting for an ablation, I took a very deep breath and went for it. We've just got back from a week in the Algarve, it was wonderful, yes I had a few sticky moments, but I would have had those if I had stayed at home. Coming home today I felt for the first time in over a year that I am once again in control of my life and not this mongrel condition.

That's so good to hear and long may that in control of your life feeling last. Inspirational for others to hear.

Jean, it was fabulous, the warmth, the light, the people, all combined to remind me life is worth fighting for, and on my return a letter with the date for my ablation was waiting on the door mat. I'm terrified and excited at the same time. Woo hoo 5th of June here I come.

Oh my gosh it's not long before you have your ablation is it! That was as bit sudden for you, or were you expecting your date that quick.

I went to Portugal about 25 years ago and loved it too. Now all I can remember about it is chicken piri piri and going on a fantastic jeep ride into the hills.

Last time I contacted the hospital they told me there was an eighteen month waiting list, even though the consultant told me 5 months, so this has come out of the blue. I am on their cancelation list so maybe some one has dipped out.

OK then if I have another lunch in Mid July you will be OK to come then? I am so glad you are learning live life in spite of AF rather than with it. Well done you. So happy for you.

G'day MammaCass,

Well done, now you've discovered how to put this mongrel in its place ... how about next hols go for Hong Kong or

Sydney :-) - just joking. But you have discovered how the journey of a lifetime begins with the first step.
