Some Mainly Recent History

I am a retired engineer living in Ballarat who has worked in the electronics industry for more than 50 years. I am going to try and post at least five days a week. Most of the posts will be electronics oriented but other topics such as mechanical engineering outdoor subjects and more.

At the end of 2018, I found out that I had a heart problem, I was seeing him on a Thursday and cardiologist said that I needed some stents installed and booked me into hospital on the following Monday. Unfortunately the cardiologist was unable to get the catheter in so that he could insert stent. He decided to have me transferred to Epworth Hospital to have a triple bypass done. I was taken by ambulance to Epworth on Wednesday afternoon. Thursday I had the procedure done. Following the procedure I was in ICU 5 or 6 days, (I have little or no memory of the first 4 or 5 days) I was in Epworth for 10 days before returning home.

Since my return home I have improved quite well. When I came out of Epworth I could barely walk 10 meters without sitting down. I decided to set myself a goal of walking around Lake Wendouree (6 k) The other day I made it around the lake in one hour twelve minutes (5 Km/Hr) which I am pleased about. I plan to circumnavigate the lake once a week.
