AF Association

Happy Christmas everyone

Writing that now, because now less than 48 hours until I fly away to the sunshine in Vietnam for a few weeks and a bit, and not sure how often I will be on until then.

Just wanted to wish everyone an AF free and relaxing Christmas spent with people that you love, and with sufficient for your needs, what more do we really need?

I'm off now fully armed with my self tester and I have no doubt my INR will go haywire with the change in diet (and the times of taking warfarin) my INR clinic still is not in favour, but that's a battle I will fight on my return, and also in Mid Jan is the next appointment with my EP when I will find out the results of my halter test and also whether or not he is recommending a surgical ablation.

I am not going to even think about that until I am back from Vietnam.

Be well everyone

Ian

Merry Christmas and Happy New to you and yours, hope all your

travel plans are problem free and your health likewise. Got to

ask why Vietnam? Are you fullfilling an ambition, it wouldnt be

most folks first choice of Christmas destination. Hope you dont

mind just curious. Shirley.

Sunshine, cheap food, interesting and friendly people, a different culture, and loads of history. Sounds like 1st place to me. Alternatives for an Xmas humbug like me are probably Saudi Arabia, or maybe Pakistan, (the former no way, the latter maybe another year :) )

I recognise I travel weird Shirley been doing it for years, I look for the unsual, this one is relatively "run of the mill"

Be well

That sounds like proper travelling where you get off the beaten track and really get to know the locals! You'll be freed up with you Coaguchek and I don't think you'll find it that difficult to stay in range if you test every few days.

I'd far rather be out there than here. But then my wife has got me a black Bah Humbug hat which I have to wear all of Christmas morning...

Have a great time and tell us all about it when you get back.

Good man yourself Ian, I did a few months running around the pacific rim ( including Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines ) three years or so ago. My next plan was a run on the Trans - Siberian ending up in Japan and a cargo ship home but the sodding AF came calling! Still time I suppose if I can get on top of things.

You'll have a great time I'm sure

Happy Christmas
