Stuck here for a few days >>>

Dear readers, this is just a quick posting to let you all know that I was admitted to Steve Biko Academic Hospital one week ago on Monday 30 April after experiencing all the symptoms normally associated with imminent heart failure.
Although everything is under control now the doctors feel it’s still too risky to send me home. They also haven’t figured out an appropriate course of action yet as far as therapy is concerned, but I’m not rushing anybody when it comes to matters that have a direct bearing on my own wellness.
Despite the fact that nobody in this hospital seems to be in any hurry at all, and that my patience was tested to its max on several occasions, the service provided by the team of practising cardiologists involved in my case has been first-rate until now.
Hospital name changes over the years:
The hospital was originally named Pretoria General Hospital, and renamed H F Verwoerd Hospital in 1967. In 1997 it changed to Pretoria Academic Hospital and in 2008 the name was finally changed to the Steve Biko Academic Hospital. - More info here.
Stay safe, and take care of your heart!
