The good news is ..

that the intense, constricting chest pain [ which most of you didn’t know about, apart from a deliberately vague comment a few months back about health issues ] that the medico thought was acute coronary troubles, isn’t.

In fact, after three heart ultrasounds and the dreaded treadmill test, I can confidently say that my heart is as strong as … well … the proverbial large emasculated bovine.

The gallbladder ultrasound that was supposedly for purposes of elimination, didn’t … eliminate that is.

So as of Friday week, the 17th of August, my gallbladder and I will be parting company. Permanently.

and with little attempt at a segue:

Thanks to my somewhat patchy blogging of late [ see above for one of the reasons ] it transpires that there are quite a few things finished this year that I have totally failed to document blogwise.

The current count for projects finished since January 1st is 51.

Granted a lot of that is new baby sized, but it does also include 9 shawls, four baby blankets and two adult cardigans,

and as I am never likely to catch up the backlog of reportage, you can find them all here [ except for Chris’ neckwarmer which I forgot to photograph. It’s a big knitted tube. It’s navy 3 x 3 rib. You can use your imagination ]

    You’ve been very busy with all your projects this year, all of which are lovely. That baby’s bib idea is excellent – I’m going to have to try that. Good luck for your op on 17th – I had mine done about 9 years ago – nothing to be worried about and as I recall, recovery was quick.

    An impressive collection! Love the shawls.

    My gall bladder and I parted ways about 5 years ago and I, for one, have not missed him/her. (not sure how he/she feels about it).

    Good luck with the op. glad it wasn’t anything sinister.

    I’m so glad your heart is strong and everything (bar your soon to be not missed gall bladder) else is fine. Take good care of yourself.

    So glad to hear that your health issues are going to be so quickly remedied. Hope you are feeling fully fit very soon.

      Oh hell yes, roll on next week – cos I have to tell you there’s a jolly good reason why the doctor thought it was heart related. It feels like every description you ever read of a heart attack… not a lot of fun

    Glad it isn’t heart troubles, hope the operation goes well.
