Well done homie !!! congrats

I managed to coax some "presults" from the echo tech :shock:
she said I had a very photogenic heart :oops:
and that she got great pictures of everything they needed to see
AND they were also GOOD pictures

My cardio honcho is head of Cardiac Medicine at the Hosp so I expect
an official report in a couple of days

So far ... so GOOD !!

Cheers
