Thanks K man. Yes I realised I had spelt it wrong, and changed to stent a few minutes later. That was a nice explanation. I knew it was a balloon that was inserted in her case up her arm but I didn't know the rest. She is out tomorrow. I'll collect her in the car and go to the motorbike IAM thing in the car. Shame! :005:
So. I look forward to months of 'GET ME A CUP OF TEA IN BED PLEASE- YOU KNOW I CANT DO ANYTHING STRESSFUL'.
Right when we are moving out of our bungalow with my 93 year old dad into his flat so our place can be redecorated. For redecorated, read 'new ceilings, new floors, new radiators, new sockets, new this new that new the other'. So looks like I can't go to work for the next few months. Wifey can't drive for a month.

............now where's that life insurance policy? I have a recollection that the geezer who sold it to us said something like 'it'll pay out if either of you has a serious illness like cancer or heart attack. Hmmmmm. What's their get-out clause I wonder?

The next step will be interesting. I looked up our mortgage life insurance and we are paying extra for 'sickness', terminal illness etc. The sickness cover of course doesn't start until 6 months after you become sick, which of course in our case coincides with the finish of the insurance term. I wonder which clause they will use to get out of paying up? They'll have a committee meeting, eat doughnuts and drink coffee and come up with an excuse.

Thanks for your good wishes guys. It's nothing they can't cope with nowadays. We live within reach of one of, if not the, best heart hospitals in the country. It's Glenfield Hospital in Leicester, a heart specialist hospital. She had a blocked artery and they inserted a stent, which is like a rigid walled tube into the blocked bit and lo and behold, she got back to normal. So far as you can get back to normal when full of morphine and other chemicals. She will be out in a few days. Does make you think though, if we lived in Outer Mongolia or the Hebrides or The Bronx with no health care or somewhere with a rubbish hospital things might have been different. NHS for ever!
I don't think that nurses and doctors realise just how much we appreciate their work. I'm just a plumber, fixing boilers which people can live without. They are plumbers doing a much more important job. Mind you, they've got more sophisticated kit.

Anyway, I'm getting my IAM pass certificate tomorrow.  :152:
And wifey might be discharged.  Well, she'll just have to get on the pillion seat won't she? I'll take the panniers to put her life support kit into.   :164:
Thinks: wonder if it works off 12v? :084:

Wishing your wife a quick recovery from NY, not far from the Bronx. There are some world class hospitals there, don't knock the Bronx. :192:

Get some professional advice.  Am pretty sure that they can not refuse to renew because of a condition.  They might try and load your policy though.  Anyway go pro on this one.

Thanks KM. In this case they haven't refused to renew the policy, it happens to mature when the mortgage associated with it also matures. We just took it out when we got the mortgage, to cover the house purchase . It was possibly the worst (actually DEFINITELY the worst) financial decision I ever made was to say 'no thanks' when the salesman asked if I wanted critical illness cover to go with it.! Aaarrrgh! That cost me 155,000.  Well, it would have if they would have paid out, but I think they would get out of paying by claiming that a blocked artery fixed by adding a stent  does not fall within their remit of 'critical illness'.
So it's just plain life insurance, and in fact also requires the other person to live a certain length of time after the first one dies. So if we both go at the same time in a car crash no one gets paid.
Oh these insurance companies do get me down!
