Health update.

Hi all, Just a quick health update. A few months ago i went to the Drs because it was nearly impossible to walk more than a few yards, As i have COPD (breathing difficulties) i assumed it was the cause of the problem. Wrong, during my annual Diabetic check i mentioned it to the nurse who called in the Dr.After COPD and Diabetic checks he said my Heart rate was very irregular, so sent me for a heart x ray and Heart scan. Today i was called in to see the Specialist about the results. Not good i'm afraid, part of the Heart is all over the place (Arterial fibrilation) so next week i'm in for an Angiogram, not looking forward to that at all. Just to add insult to injury my Hips been playing up for over a year now but they can't operate because of my conditions, so mobility only gets worse and worse leading to more weight gain, where will it all end....................
