Its not quite three months since my triple CABG and tomorrow evening I'm off on my first long haul flight post op. I've checked and packed everything - drugs, compression socks, warm clothes and the general paraphernalia of a typical business trip - but with the slight difference in that I've packed gym kit - a first!
Hotel living is both dull and unhealthy. There is only so much time I can spend in my hotel room reading and I don't understand the local TV, so thats out. Looks like I have no excuses!! And I quite like the new fitter leaner me.
I still have various aches and pains, but generally I'm fitter now (and lighter now) than I have been in years. And I know I still have a way to go yet, but life really does feel like its returning to normal (whatever normal is these days). Now I just need to start swinging a golf club!
