Geoff
I rediscovered the joy of reading during my enforced rest and when I was able to get out I found a new pleasure in walking (only on the level at first) but time soon goes by and you'll soon be back doing all the things you enjoy.

Alan,
Been doing exactly the same since getting home.
Managed to walk 1.6 miles yesterday in two lots early morning and late evening when cooler and nearly a mile early this morning.

Geoff - Feeling good for doing so.

Things have come to a grinding halt as hospital prescribed tablets are making me feel like a zombie.
Was able to walk 2km, split between morning and evening, before starting the tablets.
Stopped taking them to clear the system and soon back walking with ease.
Then started one tablet at a time and guess what.

Now looking for natural substitutes, with garlic/aspirin being one of the most important.
The hospital put me on aspirin for a week then big pharma tablets and zombie time.

Geoff - Iím DONE with F****N big pharma‼️‼️

Geoff,
I take a beta blocker and a ace inhibitors to control my heart rate and keep my blood pressure down along with my daily aspirin, I find I can do most things like gardening,walking (1 mile every morning) messing about in the garage and maintaining my Morris 8, I also go to the gym once a week to the cardio rehab class. I do seem to get tired quicker and my energy level aren't what they used to be but age is probably also to blame, stick with it and talk to your doctors, it takes a little while to get the medication that suits you right but I'm sure within a couple of months you'll be back to near normal. Good luck and stay positive I'm looking forward to the next episode with your car.
Best wishes
Alan

Geoff, could you check your stored email address (see the Profile link below the graphic at the top of this page), as I think there might be a typo or it could be an old address. thanks, RJ

Update.
Had a good chat with family doctor a few weeks ago and am now back on hospital tablets.
Started taking one at a time, waiting a week before the next to let body acclimatise, the last tablet tonight.
Feeling well enough to do a fairly brisk easy 2km walk nearly each day now, and feeling good afterwards, something I havenít been able to do beforehand without taking it easy.

Was thinking of fitting a servo motor to the Singer 660A1 sewing machine, to have complete and easy speed control for leather work, having already slowed it down to the best of my ability from the speed merchant it was, but today had another look at either fitting a stop to the foot pedal or some other way to prevent the pedal travelling too far and sending the machine onto overdrive, and think Iíve nailed it.
Will experiment tomorrow.
I donít use the machine often enough for muscle memory to help, hence a physical stop needed.

Geoff - back on the Ruby and into Workshop soon with luck
