Hello Everybody........Thank you to all the kind folks who responded with good sense advice before my holiday to France!
I am pleased to tell you all, that I had a fab time......no hitches on the TGV, sunshine every day and my AF remained stable throughout.
Our apartment was on the 3rd floor, and the building, 10 minutes walk uphill. I am pleased to say I coped with this very well, getting a bit breathless, of course, as expected, but nothing drastic........its done my calf muscles the world of good too!
The whole thing has lifted my spirits somewhat and made me realise that it is the stress of my job that affects my daily life and my AF, more than the AF itself possibly!!
I went to get my INR's checked, was told at reception that the nurse had left and i shouldn't be at that surgery ( thanks for letting me know!!) so had to wait anotheday.......... but I had eaten sensibly and my INR's were nicely in range at 2.7.
Just wanted to share some good news for a change.
PS sorry I couldn't bring the sunshine back!! : )
