Matters of the Heart

Celia is in the running for hospital visitor of the year. It’s not something she planned, but over the last few weeks it’s been something of a revolving door with her husband Charlie repeatedly admitted with heart problems.

He went back in again a few days ago, and is undergoing something we are not allowed to call electric shock treatment to get his heart beating to the correct rhythm. I think it’s called electrical cardioversion.


Only the other night Celia and I joined two other friends at the theatre. Shaughan has also been hospital visiting as his partner has had a heart attack. He and Celia briefly compared notes.

Then yesterday Maria sent me a message to say that next Monday she is having major surgery to replace two heart valves.
Hearts matter. Look after yours.
