Hi Peter
Hell that was sudden!
Hope everything is going well and you are up and running quickly, but for now take it easy and get lots of rest.
Great news, my book 'Sniffer' has seen the light of day on Amazon Kindle!

Peter, Im sorry but when all settles down and the facts of life stare you in the face, you are going to realise that "Yes, you do ride a Yamaha" My deepest sympathy.  :imaposer:

Wish you a speedy recovery and return a stronger man

Just so you all understand, I had interesting feedback of the op recently, a younger colleague of mine had the operation last March, the operation is now routine!!!! But VERY invasive, it will take Gunda a while to recover, pain wise the chest work is apparently less painful than the leg where they take the Arteries from, but mentally it is very challenging, he will need support and meds, the head goes a bit off the scale when the heart is off line and the blood being circulated outside the body by peristatal pumps, it takes the grey matter some time to recalibrate and serious depression is very common post op. So although he will physically be 100% better the head may take a while.  8)   

It is also the anaesthetics that cause a lot of truama. It took my father about 9 months to recover from deep surgery anaesthetics.

Sheez....these are things I guess most of us don't even consider...

Get well soon. Our annual meeting in Howick. Peter did the Midmar Mile on 9 February. Was his 26's and had been allocated a permanent number. The oldest swimmer was 92. Hope to see you at many more Midmar's.
Have bike, will ride.

My Mother in Law, same issue, so I asked, has she been tested for allergic reactions to the anaesthetics???? got told I was being stupid, turns out she was allergic to them, big difference in recovery time  8)
